Head Start: Progress and Challenges in Implementing Transportation Regulations

The General Accountability Office (GAO) completed a report that examined how Head Start grantee and delegate agencies had implemented the Head Start transportation regulations. The report can help local Head Start programs' improve their understanding of the challenges of transportation services. The report specifically provides information on the numbers of children transported by grantees and delegates that submitted requests to the Office of Head Start in 2006 for more time to implement the monitor and restraint provisions, as well as the challenges that were faced in the past.
