Results of Limited Scope Review of Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Head Start Program
We reviewed the financial conditions at Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate (SWO) as part of a nationwide series of reviews requested by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Head Start, as part of its overall assessment of Head Start grantees that have applied for additional funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). We found that SWO implemented adequate corrective actions with respect to 5 of the 13 concerns identified by ACF during its triennial review in December 2008. However, 6 of the 13 concerns remained uncorrected by the end of our fieldwork. (We did not review 2 of the 13 concerns ACF identified because ACF agreed to review these 2 concerns separately.) We recommended that ACF, in determining whether SWO should be awarded additional Head Start and Recovery Act grant funding, consider the information presented in this report. SWO did not directly agree or disagree with our findings.
