CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICE
The Head Start Expansion award increased the number of Head Start families on Kauai from 147 to 156. Eligible families were recruited and enrolled from populations and areas of Kauai traditionally underserved by Head Start. Each of the expansion students received the full array of Head Start services. The children served under the expansion award received comprehensive Head Start services either in a homebased or classroom setting. All 9 expansion slots were filled throughout the grant period. The purpose of Head Start is to promote school readiness for low-income children through the provision of comprehensive child and family services.
