Director's Council



The Director's Council is held annually in June. It is designed for new and experienced Virginia Head Start Directors.

There will be a separate new directors training again this year from 8:00 am-12:00 pm on Tuesday, June 19 led by the T/TA Specialists, with Carolyn Porter as the lead presenter . This additional training is geared toward directors who have been in their current role two years or less.  Part I of this two-part series was held at the Annual Conference in Williamsburg, Wednesday April 11.  


Title:  Welcome Aboard, Cruising into Success, Part II

Description:  As new Head Start/Early Head Start directors and managers (2 years or less experience), you come to your new roles with a wide range of experiences, knowledge, and needs.  This series is designed to orient and support new Head Start leaders. Head Start leaders must be fully aware of and knowledgeable about federal requirements, and they must be adept at applying these requirements to the operation of Head Start/Early Head Start programs.  Participants will leave with a clear vision of Head Start mission and the tools needed to become successful Head Start leaders.


This conference is designed for Head Start Directors and Managers.
