Arkansas Head Start State Collaboration Office
March 2012-February 2017 Strategic Plan
This strategic plan will be used as a management tool to direct the activities of the Arkansas Head Start State Collaboration Office (HSSCO) in its efforts to enhance collaboration. The plan focuses on goals, objectives and activities for improving collaboration and coordination among state and local community partners for the 2012-2017 program years. The plan also identifies agencies who will be responsible for making sure these goals are accomplished, resources, cost, timelines, and an evaluation . The evaluation will show documentation to support that the goals and objectives were accomplished.
The Arkansas HSSCO worked with state-level partners as well as the Head Start community in the development of the strategic plan. The Arkansas Head Start Association will review the goals and provide input and approval. This strategic plan has been updated to include new goals, objectives and activities to start the 2012 program year. It also addresses issues identified from the most recent updated needs assessment by EHS/Head Start grantees, which was completed in November, 2011. The strategic plan will be a working document and updated regularly to show that goals are being completed within the established timelines. These updates will be shared with the Arkansas Head Start Association (AHSA) and the Division of Child Care Early Childhood Education (DCCECE) bi-monthly.
