Federal Monitoring

Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 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 grant recipient program operation and performance. Reviews are held for the Classroom Assessment Scoring System Reviews (CLASS®), Focus Area One (FA1), and Focus Area Two (FA2). OHS uses the information collected during reviews to understand the grant recipient's approach to program design and services. The information is also used to evaluate their performance and continuous program improvement.


OHS will conduct CLASS reviews during the 2022-23 program year but will not use the scores to make competitive determinations under the Designation Renewal System.
