The Texas Head Start Metro Models.
Riley, Mary Tom, Ed.; Flores, Alfredo R., Ed.
The Texas Metro Network (TMN) is an informal group of Head Start Directors and Executive Directors organized for the purposes of improving the delivery of training and technical assistance and for assisting communication between large scale Head Start programs in the metropolitan areas of Texas. In pursuit of these aims, each member unit of the TMN selected an area of program management that it performed well and wrote a paper describing that area of program management. The papers describing the model program activities are provided in this handbook. The first paper describes the TMN in terms of differences and similarities among members and between metro and smaller, rural programs. Subsequent papers provide models for (1) an employee evaluation system, (2) program development for children with multiple handicaps, (3) networking within an information and referral system, (4) financial auditing, (5) administrative reorganization of out-of-compliance programs delegated to agencies, (6) managing information flow, and (7) parent participation. Cost and training factors associated with implementation were taken into consideration when model management areas were selected. In addition, models chosen were congruent with Head Start standards.
