11 CHAPTER 52
12 HEAD START GRANT AND TRAINING PROGRAM
13 33-5201. HEAD START GRANT AND TRAINING PROGRAM LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS. The
14 legislature finds and declares that head start, the federal program initiated
15 within the economic opportunity act, is a beneficial program meeting the needs
16 of Idaho families enrolled in the program. Additional support of the program,
17 through state funds, is therefore warranted and desirable.
18 There is hereby created in the state department of education the state
19 head start grant and training program. The purpose of the state head start
20 grant and training program is to distribute state funded grants to community
21 grantees, subject to annual appropriation, to provide state support of the
22 head start opportunity to children and their families.
23 33-5202. GRANTS AND TRAINING. Appropriations for the purposes of head
24 start grants and training shall be administered by the state department of
25 education. Of the appropriations, up to ten percent (10%) may be used to pro-
26 vide funds for innovative programs designed either to target resources for
27 particular at-risk groups of children or to provide expanded services to the
28 families enrolled in the head start program.
29 All programs, except innovative grants, shall meet the performance stan-
30 dards, rules and policies of the head start program. Grantees have the discre-
31 tion to delay enrollment for a prearranged period of time until facilities,
32 staff and equipment have been secured. Grants will be awarded at the current
33 average cost per child of the head start program in the state of Idaho.
34 Rules governing the state head start grant and training program to imple-
35 ment the performance standards, rules and policies of the head start program
36 and the provisions of this section, shall be adopted by the state board of
37 education pursuant to the provisions of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of the State Head Start Grant and Training Program legislation
is to extend Head Start services to approximately 255 eligible children this
year (15 new classrooms). The request is in keeping with national and
other state Head Start initiatives which confirm the importance of early
childhood services with a family focused approach. This legislation will
require all grantees who apply for the funds to meet the established
Performance standards, rules and policies of the Head Start Act.
An appropriation of 1,500,000 will be needed for this expansion of
services. This impact statement includes allocating 10% of the funds for
training and administration.
