Head Start Program Information Report (Head Start PIR)

The Head Start PIR collects comprehensive data on the services, staff, children and families served by more than 2,700 Head Start and Early Head Start (EHS) programs nationwide. All programs (grantees and delegates) are required to submit a PIR for each year in which they provide services to children and families. The PIR is the primary source of programmatic data for the Head Start community, their partners, Congress, and the general public. Hawaii State Profile is available at http://nieer.org/headstart#profiles.

Staffing, enrollment, and service trend information is collected through the PIR and compiled each year for use at federal, regional, and local levels. The PIR enrollment report describes the program options provided by Head Start and Early Head Start programs and provides demographic information on the children and pregnant women served. Additional information collected in the PIR enrollment report includes funded and actual enrollment, eligibility, and turnover of enrollees. The PIR family services report provides information on Head Start and Early Head Start family characteristics, including the number and types of families served, employment status, education level, and the types of services the programs provide in response to family needs.
