Dear Parents:

Sumter School District will no longer receive federal funding to provide Early Head Start services in Sumter County South Carolina, Sunday, June 30, 2019.  Beginning on Monday, July 1, 2019 Community Development Institute Head Start (CDI HS) will begin providing Early Head Start services in this area on an interim basis.

We are hopeful that CDI HS will be able to operate Early Head Start services with minimal disruption of services to children and families. We have a team arriving in your local community to work in the following key areas to begin operations as soon as possible:

•           Staffing

•           Facilities (including licensing)

•           Vendors (having vendor agreements in place, including food)

•           Insurance (secure all of the legal insurances required)

•           Transportation (if applicable)

The role of CDI HS is to provide services to children and families until a replacement grantee is selected by the federal Office of Head Start.  This could be several months or longer.  CDI HS has nothing to do with the selection of a replacement grantee.

You may call toll free 1(844) 563-7252  or visit - http://www.cdiheadstart.org/sumtercounty

or the most up-to-date information regarding Head Start interim management services in your area. You may also contact your program staff who will be receiving more information as they participate in the upcoming process.

Part of the process will include you electing parent members to the CDI HS Policy Council within the first 30-45 days of CDI HS operations.  The Policy Council structure will be provided prior to the election process and you will be receiving a guide to Parent Committees titled The Parent Voice.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.  You can be assured that we will do our best to deliver quality Early Head Start services with as minimal amount of disruption as possible.  We are looking forward to working with you. 

Sincerely,

Queridos Padres:

El Distrito Escolar de Sumter ya no seguira recibiendo fondos federales para ofrecer servicios de Early Head Start en el condado de Sumter en South Carolina despues del Domingo, 30 de Junio del 2019. A partir del Lunes, 1 de Julio del 2019, Head Start (CDI HS) del Community Development Institute comenzará a proporcionar servicios de Early Head Start en esta área de manera interina.

Anticipamos que CDI HS sera capaz de dirigir los servicios de Early Head Start con un mínimo de interrupción de los servicios a los niños y familias. Tenemos un equipo que llegará a su comunidad local para trabajar en las siguientes áreas clave para comenzar las operaciones lo más pronto posible:

Personal

  • Instalaciones (incluido el otorgamiento de licencias)
  • Proveedores (con contratos de proveedores vigentes, incluido la comida)
  • Seguro (garantizar todos los seguros legales requeridos)
  • Transportacion (si aplica)

La función de CDI HS es proporcionar servicios a los niños y familias hasta que la Oficina federal de Head Start seleccione un concesionario de reemplazo. Esto podría tomar meses o más.  CDI HS no tiene nada que ver con la selección de un concesionario de reemplazo.

Puede llamar sin costo al numero para padres: 1 (844) 563-7252 o visite http://www.cdiheadstart.org/sumtercounty para obtener la información más actualizada con respecto a los servicios de administración interina de Head Start en su área. También puede comunicarse con el personal de su programa quienes recibirán más información mientras participan en este proceso.

Parte del proceso incluirá que ustedes elijan padre’s para ser miembros del Consejo de Políticas de CDI HS dentro de los primeros 30-45 días de operaciones de CDI HS. La estructura del Consejo de Políticas será presentada antes del proceso de elección, y podrán recibir una guía para Comités de padres titulada La Voz de los Padres (The Parent Voice).

Agradecemos su paciencia y comprensión durante este tiempo.  Pueden estar seguros de que haremos nuestro mejor esfuerzo para proporcionar servicios Early Head Start de calidad con la mínima cantidad de interrupciones que sean posibles.  Estamos ansiosos por trabajar con ustedes. 

Atentamente,
