Leadership and Governance

Leadership and governance are the bedrocks of effective management. Head Start program leadership consists of three key entities: the governing body/Tribal Council, Policy Council, and management staff. The governing body/Tribal Council assumes legal and fiscal responsibility for the program. The Policy Council sets direction. Management staff oversees day-to-day operations. Together, they are a powerful force that provides leadership and strategic direction.
