The Onslow County Board of Education met in special session on Wednesday, February 15, 2023 to consider the approval of the 2023-2024 Head Start Grant Application. The decision had been previously tabled at the February 7 meeting to allow more time for Board members to review the materials. 

The four goals of the Head Start program include: enhancing the delivery of developmentally appropriate curriculum to promote success in all blended classrooms by promoting the use of play-based curriculum and data analysis; strengthening classroom and center communities by utilizing research-based practices and resources; enhancing family engagement and educational opportunities; and enhancing community partnerships to assist families in accessing community resources. 

Grant funding would cover $2,000,895 for personnel, materials, contractual services, and administrative costs, $83,334 for indirect costs, and $24,354 for training and professional development.  

The Board passed the grant application and other parts of the 2023-2023 Head Start plan.
