Evaluation of the Head Start Designation Renewal System

This project is a collaboration between FPG and Urban Institute to evaluate Head Start’s Designation Renewal System (DRS) and examine its role in improving quality in Head Start and Early Head Start. We will examine the sensitivity of the DRS in differentiating lower performing programs from higher performing programs and determine whether the DRS might affect program quality through re-competition.
