Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Head Start Monitoring Protocols

Head Start monitoring protocols are used by the Office of Head Start (OHS) to gather data and other information to assess grantee program operation and performance. Reviews are held for the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®), Focus Area One, and Focus Area Two. OHS uses the information collected during reviews to understand the grantee’s approach to program design and services. The information is also used to evaluate their performance and continuous program improvement.
