Ongoing Monitoring and Continuous Improvement

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. 

Ongoing Monitoring

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.
