Ensuring Student Success through Collaboration. Bulletin No. 94076.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Wisconsin designed a proposal to the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) for funding through a grant program: "Ensuring Student Success Through Collaboration." With the financial support made available by CCSSO through this grant program, a statewide meeting on May 26, 1993, was held to explore school/community collaboration to address the needs of children and families. The meeting was attended by over 100 opinion leaders on collaboration. The meeting intended to discuss numerous topics, including sharing with others the experiences of implementing and sustaining community collaborative initiatives. The overall purpose of the project was to explore the feasibility of collaboration as a method for successfully meeting the needs of children and families in Wisconsin. The methods of exploration included the statewide meeting with followup telephone interviews. Information was compiled and formulated into a guide for collaboration and a community needs assessment. Included in the guide are four appendices: Stevens Point Conference itinerary; protocol for telephone interviews; benefits and obstacles for collaboration; and community assessments. Contains 12 references. (KDP)
