Contact events help monitor who attended parent involvement events, volunteered with your program, expressed an interest or need, and received services. This information is important for Head Start programs to ensure compliance with Head Start standards.
Contact events are located on the contact record on the Events tab.
Contact event types include:
- Family Need Identified
- Father Involvement Event
- General Family Event
NOTE: Events stored on the primary and secondary contacts will be the only events tracked on PIR reporting. Primary contact and secondary contact designation is specified on each child’s relationship tab (primary contact = head of household).
- Date: Date the child and parent attended the pedestrian safety training. This defaults to today’s date so be sure to update it if you are entering an event a few days later.
- Note: Enter specific details here.
Pedestrian Safety Training is a Head Start Requirement. When you add this event type to a child’s record, you can track the status of this requirement utilizing the Head Start Post Enrollment Deadlines or Deadline Tracking reports.
