Audio/Video and Photo Specs

Follow the specifications below when submitting audio, video, and photos to the Head Start Information and Communications Center (HSICC) for processing.

Spanish Translation Glossary

The Head Start Bilingual Glossary has been created to provide an accurate and consistent terminology database for rendering Head Start translations from English into Spanish. Since the Spanish language is very rich and diverse, it is always a challenge to find neutral terms, that most Spanish speakers in the United States would understand, therefore, in some cases, several terms are included in the same entry.

Use of Federal and National Center Logos

Review tips for using the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Head Start (OHS), and National Center logos.

Summary and Intro Text

Summary and intro text are required for most resources posted to the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC). Review the definitions for each, along with examples, below. All searchable content needs summary and intro text; non-searchable items include transcripts, certificates, and webinar guides. Find out when and where summary and intro text should be used. For more information on writing teasers, see Promotional Language.

Accessing Google Analytics

National Centers can access web analytics for all topics pages and associated content from the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC) Google Analytics account. This account reflects the corresponding data via the "ECLKC Topics" profile. Learn more about accessing and reviewing data related to the ECLKC's website traffic.

Analytics Tracking for Webpages and Apps

National Centers must add the Google Analytics tracking code snippet to each webpage, learning module, or application (apps) they want to track prior to posting on the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC).

Procedures and Guidelines for Image Submissions in Razuna

The Head Start Information and Communications Center (HSICC) uses Razuna to securely store, publish, and manage photos, graphics, and logos. The Razuna Image Library is used by the Office of Head Start (OHS) and National Centers to accelerate the workflow of new projects from creation to delivery.

E-blast Dissemination Lists

The Office of Head Start (OHS) and the Office of Child Care (OCC) disseminate e-blasts to multiple lists, as requested by the National Centers and other early childhood partners. List requests are made when the e-blast draft is submitted to the Head Start Information and Communications Center (HSICC). E-blast lists must be pre-approved by the OHS, OCC, or National Center's federal project officer (FPO).
