ERSEA: A to Z BCW’s comprehensive training and technical assistance for high quality ERSEA practices is offered through one day of intensive front-line staff training immediately followed by one day of supervisor/manager consultation to support your implementation of ERSEA best practices.
Emphasis is placed on following the most current Head Start requirements while focusing on what is best for each unique community. Training is practical, concrete, and fun, designed to reduce fears and increase support and excitement about program philosophy and practice.
This BCW training/consultation module came from Associate Consultant Cristine Cochran’s strong interest in supporting Head Start/EHS staff and evolved based on her experiences as a Regional Training/Technical Assistance Specialist, a Head Start
Manager, a Federal Review Team Consultant, and an ARRA consultant. This T/TA provides an excellent base for determining and enhancing ERSEA services, incorporating Performance Standards, Information Memos and best practices as developed by the Office of Head Start.
Financial management and compliance are critical areas for federally funded Head Start /Early Head Start programs. In order to comply with federal administrative requirements and cost principles, agencies must understand fiscal regulations, the importance of compliance, and be aware of the potential for disallowed costs and reduced funding.
Our expert fiscal consultant, Paul Michelson, has extensive Head Start experience at the local, regional, technical assistance, and national level. In addition to budget management, Paul’s expertise includes fiduciary responsibilities of boards, facilities planning, and internal/external reporting. His fiscal consultation emphasizes federal rules, regulations, and executive orders and leaves you with detailed action steps.
To ensure your program uses the highest quality procedures and meets Head Start Program Performance Standards as well as best practices for fiscal services, bring Paul to your program for personalized consultation.
