Emergency Leadership Plan Guide Winter 2009

An Emergency Leadership Plan is an important tool for a Head Start program.  It can minimize, and even prevent, the turmoil that often occurs when a director is unexpectedly absent for a period of time.

Head Start services to children and families must continue uninterrupted, regardless of any gap or change in leadership.  An Emergency Leadership Plan details how a director’s absence will be managed; who will do what and how; and under what circumstances the Plan will be put into effect.  It helps ensure continuity of operations by maintaining the program’s essential functions.
