How We Help
Data Literacy Credential
The Data Literacy Credential is brought to you by The Academy at NHSA in partnership with Acorn Evaluation, and designed with Early Head Start and Head Start professionals in mind. Empower your team with a positive view of data that will strengthen your quality improvement efforts.
Head Start Data Basics & Data Essentials
Data Basics and Data Essentials are asynchronous, online courses brought to you by The Academy at NHSA in partnership with Acorn Evaluation. These courses are intended for anyone in Head Start. They lay a foundation for developing data literacy and using data for program improvement.
Data Capacity Assessment
The Head Start / Early Head Start Data Capacity Assessment is designed for Head Start/Early Head Start management teams, to fully understand their program's current status and capability in "all things data", powered by interviews, surveys, and analyses of their program's data.
Data Camp for Head Start
We partner with Head Start California to offer Data Camp for Head Start Professionals: a two-day professional development training for directors and managers, focusing on the many changes to Head Start/Early Head Start with regards to data and continuous quality improvement. Data Camp is offered both in-person and virtually.
Data Analyst Certificate for Head Start Professionals
The Data Analyst Certificate for Head Start Professionals is designed for staff interested in building tools to support their leadership teams within their Head Start/Early Head Start programs. Learners will work collaboratively with other HS/EHS professionals to export data from their core data systems, clean and prepare it, and build analytic tools in Excel.
