Final Report
Page Count: 

The preliminary data in this report describe parent and staff perspectives on the family engagement activities and service provision in Head Start programs. This includes information on: 1) How parents describe the environment of Head Start programs; 2) What staff are involved in family engagement efforts; 3) How parents and staff (teachers and family services staff) describe their relationships and interactions with one another; and 4) How programs engage with community partners to provide comprehensive services to families. Finally, the report discusses how the reported family engagement activities align with the Framework. (Author abstract modified)
