Ongoing monitoring helps Head Start programs better address goals and objectives. It also engages all stakeholders in the program planning process.
Head Start and Early Head Start programs use ongoing monitoring to continually assess progress toward meeting program goals and objectives, as well as compliance with regulatory requirements. Ongoing monitoring measures program performance.
These systems highlight the importance of using ongoing monitoring to ensure programs are making the necessary adjustments to realize their goals and objectives. The expectation is that programs share their ongoing monitoring data with staff, Policy Councils, and governing bodies to engage them in all aspects of the program planning process.

A program must establish procedures on data management, and through ongoing assessment, use data to effectively oversee progress toward addressing program needs, evaluate compliance, and successfully achieve program goals.
