Sequestration Policy & Strategy
Understanding it, fighting it, and getting through the cuts while maintaining quality service

Presented by Aaron Lieberman, CEO & Co-Founder, Acelero Learning and Emmalie Dropkin, NHSA

If it is allowed to stand, the implementation of sequestration will have a powerful impact on Head Start and Early Head Start programs nationwide. The Office of Head Start estimates that as many as 70,000 children will lose access to Head Start services because of this funding reduction.

How will or should your program respond? Every program must make extremely difficult choices among competing priorities. Are you considering across the board salary cuts? Furloughs? Elimination of services at certain centers or program options (based on your community assessment)?

Join NHSA and Acelero Learning for a special webinar on understand sequestration, and beginning to think about options on how to deal with it. Emmalie Dropkin from NHSA will introduce the session by addressing key points of the program instruction, review frequently asked questions, and talk about advocacy strategies to try to get these damaging cuts reversed. Aaron Lieberman from Acelero Learning will discuss the pros and cons of different strategies as programs look at how to deal with the cuts if they are not reversed – and we will allow time for questions and sharing of ideas from the field.

So join this webinar to stay fully informed about sequestration and Head Start, and consider what options are available to your program to maintain high-quality services and minimize the disruption to your staff and community.
