(Recorded Webinar Series) An In-Depth Walk Through the AMS 2.0 FY2024 Protocols - Parts I and II

Duration: 75 minutes each
Recorded on: 1/23/2024 and 1/24/2024

The FY2024 monitoring reviews have been ongoing since October 2023.  By popular demand, we will be walking through the Aligned Monitoring System 2.0 FY2024 Protocols for Focus Area 1Focus Area 2, and the new Risk Assessment Notification (RAN). Learn what’s still the same and what’s new under the FY2024 protocols, including how you should be thinking about reviews as they relate to ACF-IM-HS-22-07 Reporting Child Health and Safety Incidents.

We all know Head Start monitoring results have major legal ramifications for your program. It’s always been important to get things right, but now with re-competition as the backdrop for providing high-quality services, it’s more important than ever. Whether you have been scheduled for review in FY2024 or not, this webinar series will help you be review-ready in the event of unannounced reviews.  This webinar covers the legal perspective on monitoring (an important perspective because findings have legal significance to your program’s operations).

Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Head Start Training Package holders. For more information on our Head Start Training Package, click here or contact us.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
