Summer Institute for Head Start Management
July 24-28, 2017
at Holiday Inn at Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco
The Summer Institute curriculum is based entirely on the new Parent, Family Community Engagement (PFCE) framework, and on the goals and Relationship Based Competencies (RBCs) listed in the appendix to IM-12-05. We cover the RBCs for Supervisors, presenting the latest in social work theory and practice to help you implement the PFCE framework.
We like the PFCE framework. It is based on the latest in social science theory and research. After a decade of focus on the classroom and cognitive development, the PFCE framework rebalances Head Start by increasing the emphasis on social development and parenting skills. We think the framework is excellent and will be a very useful conceptual framework for years to come.
The challenge is that fully implementing the PFCE is a very long step for most local programs. In my opinion, many programs are struggling. The PFCE focuses heavily on the importance of developing a relationship between the Family Worker and the family. But it is a challenge to develop the desired kind of relationship when the first contacts are about eligibility and enrollment -- with the Family Worker focused on getting the forms filled out. The PFCE does not mention ERSEA, but most Family Workers spend at least a third of their time on ERSEA-related tasks. Many Family Workers have a caseload of anywhere from 75 to 200 families, but the ideal (and possible future standard) is no more than 50. There are some software programs that help you fill out the forms and track progress, but they do not tell you HOW to work with the families. Our social work faculty provide an array of methods to help your Family Workers create the all-important relationship with the parents.
