The IHSA Innovative Bright Practices is a place where we will spotlight innovative ideas from the Head Start and Early Head Start community.  These innovative practices will offer our community an opportunity to see, listen and learn about bright ideas happening across our state.  Our hope is that it might stimulate or “plant a seed” from where you can take an idea and make it your own.  To submit an idea for this area please click HERE. Innovation is key to our professional success..
