Executive Director, Jody Thomas, says, “The Central Office Team provides leadership to staff.  The team is diversified in its styles, personalities, and strengths.  The team has high quality brain storming abilities, tackles challenges in a strong manner, and is super organized.”

The Central Office Team has been planning for the 2016-17 program year since April 2016.  Once the Program Calendar is in draft form, all of the other planning can begin!  Grants, trainings, technology updates, staff in-service plans, PIR, public relations, enrollment, health information, food service, setting up new classrooms, figuring petty cash, keeping the bills paid, balancing the budget, cleaning the floors, painting the walls, and setting up at fairs are just a few of the tasks.

Jody notes that the Education Supervisors achieving a rating of “reliable” for CLASS certification is a great accomplishment!

“Overall, the Central Office Team is a hard working team.  The Team remembers the importance of having fun while continually striving to maintain a high quality program.  TEAM stands for Together Everyone Achieves More and this TEAM has a combined 225 years of Bradford-Tioga Head Start service! Go TEAM!”
