Bridges, v6 n1 Sum 2001

This document is comprised of the one issue in volume 6 of "Bridges," a publication produced by the California Head Start-State Collaboration Office to detail the activities of the educational partnership and to provide relevant information to programs participating in the partnership. The Summer 2001 issue focuses on providing practitioners with resources to assist in professional development. The issue presents the Professional Growth and Development Resource Matrix, including narrative descriptions and contact information for various agencies, programs, and associations that provide opportunities for professional growth. The child development permit and renewal process is also described. Information is provided on professional associations, including area sections and local chapters. In addition, contact information is listed by county for child and families commissions, local planning councils, local quality consortia, offices of education, and resource and referral agencies. The issue also delineates regional resources, including child development training consortia and universities and colleges. California's compensation and retention initiative is described and the services provided by regional resources centers delineated. The dilemma of whether family child care providers are legally viewed as employees or independent contractors when they partner with a Head Start agency is also discussed. (KB)
