Level One ERSEA Training

Level One ERSEA training strengthens participants’ knowledge and skills that are necessary for meeting requirements outlined in Part 1305 of the federal regulations regarding eligibility, recruitment, selection, enrollment, and attendance in Head Start. Activities for small and large groups facilitate key learning objectives and include:

  • An introduction to a systems approach to managing the ERSEA process
  • A detailed review of federal regulations and program instructions
  • Hands-on assignments to stimulate new ideas and strategies for implementing ERSEA processes
  • Opportunities for detailed question-and-answer

It is important for the dynamics of the Summit that participants arrive on time and attend the full Summit. We will start and end promptly. Please plan your travel accordingly. We will take a morning and afternoon break. Business casual attire is encouraged; regular casual dress is acceptable.

Who Should Attend:
Level One training is designed for individuals and teams – whether you’re an experienced Head Start practitioner or new to the Head Start program. (Completion of Level One training by at least one team member is required for a team to attend Level Two.)

Take-home resource materials:
HGJA wants you to be able to use the information and skills you gain in these Summits – at home. That’s why participants receive a comprehensive manual, designed especially for their level of training. The Level One ERSEA Tool Kit will help program professionals better implement requirements of Part 1305 of the federal regulations. The Tool Kit includes:

  • Concepts and ideas that provide clarification of the regulations
  • Key definitions vital to implementing ERSEA processes
  • Small and large group team assignments
  • Appendices and references that further support the requirements and ideas for implementation

Participants must arrange their own travel and lodging. We have arranged special room rates for Summit attendees. When you contact the hotel, be sure to identify yourself as an ERSEA Summit attendee to receive the proper rate. Rooms will be available at the special rate until the Early Bird date or until the block we’ve reserved fills up, whichever comes first. Reservations made after that time will be accepted on a space and rate available basis by the hotels. Cancellation and payment policies vary among hotels. Be sure to inquire about your hotel’s policies.
