What has your overall reaction to the NPRM been?
I think the proposed standards are wonderful and present a strong vision for Head Start
I think the standards are good but need some changes to be well implemented
I think many of the proposed changes are problematic and need extensive comments
I haven't had time to familiarize myself with the NPRM yet
The NPRM reorganizes existing standards into five areas: Program Governance, Program Operations, Financial and Administrative Requirements, Federal Administrative Procedures, and Definitions. How do you feel about the general organization?
I like it and think this will make the standards more accessible
I think there are still steps they could take to better organize standards
I'm lost and don't think they need to be reorganized
