The Head Start Connects: A Study of Family Support Services study is the final phase of the Head Start (HS) Connects Study. The study will collect data through web-based surveys of Head Start program directors, Head Start family and community partnerships managers/coordinators, and Head Start family support services staff members. In this phase, data collection is expected to take place over a 10-month period in the program year of 2022-2023. OMB most recently approved data collection activities for the HS Connects study on 9/2/22 (OMB #0970-0538). Since approval, the study team identified minor edits to one data collection instrument to be fielded in Fall 2022 (Instrument 1: Survey of Program Directors). Additionally, the team anticipates that two Head Start agency types – that is, tribal governments or consortiums (AI/AN) and school systems – likely will have additional tribal- or school district-level approval processes that must completed before fielding Instrument 1 to program directors. Based on experiences with these program-specific approval processes in other studies and input from other stakeholders, the study team anticipates that the approval processes may be lengthy and may not be completed in a timeframe that aligns with the study timeline for HS Connects. Because this would result in fewer programs being able to participate in the study, the now study proposes to oversample AI/AN and school-based programs to help ensure representation.
