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.

MAHS 2012–2013 Annual Report

MAHS is a program within the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), a nonprofit association of city and county governments and the metropolitan planning organization for the Kansas City region. As the grantee, MAHS capitalizes on MARC’s well-established community connections. These connections and history of collaboration allow MAHS to provide comprehensive, high quality birth-through-five early education services that facilitate healthy development — including physical and social/emotional development — and prepare children for school success.

MAHS prepares an annual report to inform stakeholders and partners about our progress over the past year. The annual report highlights our programs and achievements, and helps MAHS identify avenues for success in the coming year.
