Developing Service Plans: A Resource Manual for American Indian/Alaska Native Head Start/Early Head Start Grantees
Academy for Educational Development
This "Developing Service Plans" guide is a tool to assist grantees in the development of written service plans. It provides a structure that can be tailored to meet the needs of individual grantees. Services Plans are a management tool for planning, organizing and implementing Head Start program services to children and families. As stated in the Head Start Program Performance Standards: "Program planning must include: The development of written plans for implementing services in each of the program areas--Early Childhood Development and Health Services, Family and Community Partnerships, and Program Design and Management {1304.51 (a)1(iii)}." The service plan(s) should be a working document that specifies how your program will meet or exceed the minimum requirements of the Head Start Performance Standards. The information in this guide includes specific guidelines for developing the plans, and using them to implement services. Remember that the plan is a road map that outlines the steps to be taken to meet your goals and objectives, within the systematic framework provided by Head Start Program Performance Standards. The process, and the plan(s) will be different for each grantee, but the end result will provide you with plans for implementing quality services.
