The Office of Head Start (OHS) presents the FY 2013 Monitoring Protocol, the instrument used to
gather data during on‐site monitoring reviews. The protocol measures seven (7) areas of grantee performance and contains Key Indicators that are used to assess each grantee. Data gathered about grantees during monitoring reviews is used by the Office of Head Start to evaluate multiple levels of performance,
including determining program strengths, concerns, noncompliances, and deficiencies.
