Why attend Virtual Data Camp?
It is still a relatively new requirement that Head Start/Early Head Start grantees demonstrate data-driven continuous quality improvement (CQI), alongside the standard mandatory requirements of simply complying with your grant. Directors are continually seeking quality training that they can take back to their agencies and successfully use. Virtual Data Camp is designed to immediately empower attendees to make an impact back at their programs.
Virtual Data Camp is:
Two days, 3 hours per day
Fast-moving and fun
Partner-based and group-based
Grounded in real-life examples from Head Start programs successfully implementing CQI and who receive exemplary reviews
Filled with useable, easy to understand resources to take with you
Hundreds of Head Start professionals have completed this training and are already making successful changes back at their programs!
Spaces in each camp are limited. Applicants will be screened by Head Start California for appropriateness with the cohort.
Virtual Data Camp for Head Start Professionals is a program of Head Start California and Acorn Evaluation, Inc., jointly committed to developing sustainable systems of best practices using data for association members and guests. Virtual Data Camp is NOT appropriate for current Acorn Evaluation, Inc. clients.
About our VIRTUAL program:
HSC Data Camp has been reimagined and restructured in a new virtual format. Piloted in October 2020, the new Virtual Data Camp brings you the same level of engagement with your teammate and your peers, and the same effective and high-quality interaction with facilitators as an in-person Data Camp. Simply stated: it was a big success!
