Head Start and Early Head Start program leadership, staff, and families are committed to using data to improve family engagement practices on a continuous basis. Leaders and managers build support and capacity for this work among staff, families, and community partners. Together, they can work on selecting indicators of PFCE progress, planning for continuous improvement, and interpreting data, including community strengths and needs assessments.

Program leaders seek out opportunities to use their program data to inform local and state planning and policy decisions. They monitor their own progress toward PFCE outcomes and periodically refine plans and action steps.
