ICS, Inc. pre-school recruitment announcement
As a public service, ICS, Inc., Project Head Start announces its annual recruitment drive for pre-school age children for the 2007-2008 program year. To be eligible for participation, a child must be three or four years old on or before September 1, 2007. The formal recruitment drive runs from January until the beginning of April. If your child already has an application and is on the Waiting list for openings, check with your local center and be sure the application is current and complete. If your child is currently enrolled in Early Head Start you must complete a different application for Head Start.
ICS also operates a small Early Head Start (EHS) program for pregnant women, infants and toddlers. EHS is not located at all ICS centers and space is very limited. Check at your center if interested in applying for EHS enrollment.
When applying, the parent/guardian must present the following items:
A certified birth certificate; immunization report #121 from the MS Health Dept. or your family physician; copy of the child’s Social Security card; proof of the family’s gross yearly income — either for the last tax year or the past 12 months (tax forms, pay stubs, etc.); copy of the child’s Medicaid or C.H.I.P. insurance, if applicable; Social Security number for head of household.
To complete an application or obtain further information, contact your local Head Start Center. Applications are available and may be picked up at any ICS Head Start Center. Please allow time for a review of the forms with Family Services when returning forms. Forms may be completed on site. Staff members are available for assistance. If you need further information you may contact ICS Family Services at our administrative offices at 160 West Valley Street in Holly Springs, or call (662) 252-1582/1583, ext. 139 or 104.
Parents of all age-eligible children are encouraged to apply.
Although low wealth income families may be given preference for selection, Head Start is a wonderful program for all children who receive the opportunity to participate. Complete the application in order to give your child the best chance for selection. Parents of children with special needs are highly encouraged to apply. Children with diagnosed disabilities may be able to enter Head Start earlier than other children.
Bus transportation may be limited. ICS uses bus routes. When completing an application ask the local center director for referral and coordination assistance on transportation plans.
ICS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin or disability.
Deadline is March 9 for next ACT test
College-bound high school students can register by March 9 for the next national ACT test date. The test will be administered nationwide on Saturday, April 14. Students who miss the March 9 deadline can do a late registration for an additional fee. The late registration deadline is March 23. Students can register online at www.actstudent.org, or they can get registration materials from high school counselors.
The ACT is accepted by all colleges and universities that use admissions tests in their application process. It’s an academic achievement test covering four subject areas: English, reading, mathematics and science. Students can choose to take the ACT with or without the optional writing test. The ACT costs $29 without the writing test and $43 with writing. The majority of colleges don’t require a writing score, so students should check with the colleges they’re considering before registering for the test. The late registration fee is $19.
Colleges and universities use ACT scores, along with other information, to determine if a student is academically ready for college-level coursework. Students with lower ACT scores are likely to need remedial courses to help bring them up to speed for college-level courses. This is why many juniors take the ACT, check their scores, and then take additional coursework to address academic weaknesses before re-taking the ACT as seniors.
With the ACT, students can choose not to report any scores automatically to colleges. Later, after receiving their scores, students can decide to test again before reporting scores. Colleges only see the scores that students choose to report—they don’t see all scores for each time a student takes the ACT.
For more information about the ACT, including sample tests and online preparation, go to www.actstudent.org.
