Some schools lose in Head Start transfer

The transfer was made in 1991 and 1992 because of forecasts that teacher salary increases would put the schools’ Head Start programs increasingly in the red. As it turned out, salaries did not rise as projected. That development, along with problems in finding and preparing community sites, prompted the Board of Education and the city, which oversees Head Start locally, to drop plans for the third and final phase of the transfer.
