LCCAA Head Start thrilled by federal review


Feb. 28, 2019: Lorain County Community Action Agency is celebrating a “quality-affirming” federal review. After monitoring the program for a full week last fall, federal reviewers reported that LCCAA meets all the stringent requirements, federal performance standards, laws and regulations demanded of the funding.


“We are beyond thrilled with this report,” said LCCAA President and CEO Jackie Boehnlein. “It affirms what we already know: our program functions at a high level and promotes school readiness for low-income children in our county.”


Fact-finders examined every aspect of LCCAA’s Head Start program in detail. They found that LCCAA intentionally uses data and information to improve teaching, assessments, family engagement and more. The agency was also found to use community partnerships and collaborations effectively in providing resources to Head Start families.


LCCAA’s work to direct budgetary resources toward areas of highest priority while taking school readiness seriously and providing families with the best possible service was noted.


“The comprehensive nature of this review is a reflection of so much more than whether we have the correct documents filed away,” said Shauna Matelski, LCCAA Head Start Director. “Head Start Works in Lorain County because everyone involved with the program does their part on behalf of children and families.”


LCCAA has operated Head Start in Lorain County since 1966. Head Start is a federally funded, comprehensive child development program shown to promote early childhood wellness, school readiness, and academic achievement. LCCAA serves approximately 1,100 children and their families annually.


Enrollment will soon be underway for the 2019-2020 school year.
