Clarification on the Designated Program Administrator

Print Bookmark and Share

When more than one person shares the responsibilities of a program administrator, the program must designate an individual whose position includes responsibilities in program management and early childhood as the designated program administrator.  This administrator may have a different role title depending on the program type or sponsorship of the program.  Common titles include director, site manager, administrator, program manager, early childhood coordinator, and principal.  The designated program administrator must meet the Candidacy requirement for the program administrator and the qualifications outlined in Criterion 10.A.02.  This individual's contributions will be included in the assessment of criteria within Topic Area 10.A. Leadership.
