New early childhood program policy council has initial training: On Oct. 26, 2012, newly elected members of the Northeast Washington Early Childhood Program’s Policy Council had their initial orientation and training at the VL Transport building in Valley. The Policy Council is a group of dedicated parents of ECEAP and Head Start program preschool children and community representatives who provide governance and advice to the program. For some parents this is their first experience serving on an advisory board and they gain valuable skills in team decision-making, communication and leadership. At their next meeting, officers will be elected and committees will be formed. Northeast Washington Early Childhood Program is a program of Rural Resources Community Action.
