  • E Center, the local grantee for Head Start services, operates three centers within Sutter County and is partnering with its local school district to strengthen quality within classrooms. In collaboration with Yuba City Unified School District, E Center Head Start sites in Sutter County are participating in the Child Signature Program (CSP) funded by the Sutter County Children and Families Commission. CSP focuses on enhancing the quality of Instructional Strategies, Teacher‐Child Interaction, Social‐Emotional Development, and Parent Involvement and Support for at risk 0‐5 year old children and families. Participating programs have completed the first phase of conducting a Readiness Assessment which is aimed at evaluating the program’s current strategies in these key areas. The next phase will develop and implement program improvement plans. Once the plan is in place technical assistance and training will be identified and applied accordingly. Overall quality of classroom instruction has been greatly improved due to the readiness assessment tools used to evaluate program strategies. E Center Head Start is a nonprofit agency proudly providing comprehensive services to young children and their families in eight Northern California counties.
