About the Policy Council

The Policy Council is involved with planning for GCCSA’s Head Start and Early Head Start future. Made up of elected representatives, one from each of our Head Start and Early Head Start centers, as well as six Community Organizations, the council meets monthly to make decisions for GCCSA’s program and children. The Policy Council is responsible for planning, reviewing and approving all Head Start program areas and assist the agency in promoting Parental Engagement to centers and communities, all while volunteering their time.
