The Head Start Policy Council is the governing board for the Head Start program, along with the EMAA Board of Directors. The Council is made up of one parent representative from each center and one community representative from each county. The Council meets the first Monday of each month with each meeting beginning at 10:30 am. Parent Representatives are elected each year by the parents at each Head Start Site. The Community Representatives are nominated by the local Head Start Sites in their county.
