This committee is a policy committee. There are 2 volunteer representatives from each class. This committee selects a President, a Vice President and a Secretary to lead the meetings. There is a monthly meeting in which parents are actively involved with the program coordinator and support staff in areas such as hire staff, develop budgets, review policies, etc...1 community representative and 1 past parent are also included in the committee.

Empire Head Start believes that parents need to be involved at every level, since they are their children's best advocates.
