2016 GSRP Selection Process

Great Start Readiness Program Selection Process

 Selection for the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is based on a ranking system. Families are recruited and interviewed throughout the year. Beginning in February each year families participate in individual interviews with center staff to establish eligibility in GSRP. At the time of the family interview income and other risk criteria are identified, verified and assigned a score. Potential students are ranked by income using the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Families are grouped by income level in accordance with legislation and guidance from the Michigan Department of Education and Oakland Intermediate School District. In addition to income, families are ranked within income groups based on the risk criteria score.

  1. Families under 150% Family Poverty Guidelines are in the first group accepted into the program and notified in early July.
  2.  

  3. Families between 151% and 200% Family Poverty Guidelines are the second group accepted into the program and notified late July.
