NHSA Works with Senators to Call for Removal of DRS 10% CLASS Trigger

Over the past few months NHSA has been working with a bipartisan group of Senators to send a letter to the Administration calling for the removal of the 10% CLASS trigger in the Designation Renewal System. Led by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) the final letter includes 5 Republican, 13 Democrat, and 1 Independent Senators who signed on and was sent to Secretary Burwell earlier this month. We are pleased with this strong support and want to thank the many Head Start leaders who reached out to their Senate offices in support of the letter. You can find the full text of the letter here.

Duration Extension Opportunities for Head Start

Extended Duration in Head Start

"Extended Duration" refers to lengthening the hours of services that Head Start offers individual children and their families, with the goal of increasing children's learning and developmental outcomes by providing more hours of high-quality learning experiences. Longer hours also support families who are working or in school to pursue self-sufficiency while resting assured that their children are in safe and nurturing early learning environments.
