• Federal regulations that govern Head Start services are called the HEAD START PROGRAM PERFORMANCE STANDARDS.  HSPPS for short.
    Local programs are required to follow sections 1301 (Governance), 1302 (Operations), 1303 (Finance and Management).  Section 1304 includes the requirements for the Federal offices that administer Head Start across the nation and Section 1305 is devoted to Definitions. We include the HSPPS here in case you are a policy wonk or like heavy reading to put you to sleep!  Jokes aside, Central Texas 4C, Inc. is devoted to being sure that we meet every part of these regulations because we want the Federal funding to keep coming to Central Texas!
