2014 Tribal Consultations 

The purpose of the Consultation Sessions is to solicit input on ways to better meet the needs of Indian, including Alaska Native, children and their families, taking into consideration funding allocations, distribution formulas, and other issues affecting the delivery of Head Start services in their geographic locations. 

General Recommendations to Presenters: 

  • Speak from Experience.  Offering the actual experiences of your program will be very helpful to federal officials.  It makes the issue both “real” and “human.”  It would be especially helpful if you have real life examples that illustrate some of the points suggested below.
  • Identify the Problem.  Be as specific as possible about problems you have identified.
  • Propose Specific Solutions.  Proposing specific solutions will be helpful to government officials and guarantee that this consultation will be more than just a gripe session.
  • Comment on Positive Items, as Well.  It is important to emphasize what is working and what is successful so that those policies and actions are reinforced and perhaps expanded to other areas where they would be of benefit.
