​​Head Start Full Utilization

Each year school districts and Head Start programs enter into full utilization agreements to coordinate services to eligible children through state (Kentucky Preschool) and federal (Head Start) funds. The purpose of Head Start full utilization is to avoid duplication of preschool services and supplanting of federal funds and to maximize the use of Head Start funds to serve as many four-year-old children as possible.
