Start Preamble

Title: Tracking of the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSRET) Sample.

OMB No.: 0970-0388.

Description: The EHSREP is a longitudinal study originally designed to meet the 1994 requirement for a national evaluation of the Early Head Start program. Child and family assessments were conducted when children were 14 months old, 24 months old, 36 months old, in the spring prior to kindergarten entry, and again in the spring of the sixth year of formal schooling (5th grade for most children). Today, children of the EHSREP are approximately 14-17 years of age (depending on their age at the time of enrollment in the study).

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing to track the children/families who participated in the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSREP) until the children reach 18 years of age. The purpose of tracking these participants is to maintain up-to-date contact information for the children/families in the event that the ACF determines that a future follow-up to the EHSREP will take place.

Respondents: Participants in the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project.
