The Migrant and Seasonal Head Start (MSHS) Study provides a national picture of MSHS programs, centers, families, and children. The MSHS Study was designed through extensive engagement and input from the MSHS community to better understand:

  • characteristics of MSHS programs, centers, staff, families, and children;
  • services that MSHS provides;
  • instructional practices in MSHS classrooms; and
  • MSHS supports for child, parent, and family well-being.

The webinar will provide researchers and analysts with:

  • An overview of MSHS and the MSHS Study;
  • Study design, sample, and measures;
  • Primary datasets and documentation;
  • Representativeness and weights;
  • Illustration of MSHS analyses and findings; and
