MAHS Advisory Board

The MARC Board of Directors serves as the governing body for Mid-America Head Start. In March 2012, the MARC Board voted to establish the Head Start Advisory Committee. While the MARC board maintains legal and fiscal responsibility for MAHS, this newly established advisory committee oversees operations and submits monthly reports to the MARC board.

MAHS Policy Council

The MAHS Policy Council consists of parents and community members elected by each delegate agency to represent family concerns and approve financial expenditures and annual program planning. Policy Council members are trained in Head Start governance responsibilities, as well as fiscal and program policies and standards.
