Minnesota Family Service Collaboratives: 1998 Outcome Reports.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement.
In 1993 the Minnesota Legislature provided funding to establish local collaborative initiatives to integrate services and improve outcomes for children and families. This report is based on the individual outcome reports mandated for the 24 collaboratives that first received implementation grants in 1995 or 1996. Information from a variety of sources is reported in the categories of child and family health, family functioning, school performance, youth development, and organizational and systemic change. Improvements have been noted in each of these areas. Collaboratives have been focusing their educational efforts on such things as improved school attendance and increased graduation rates. The first two appendixes discuss core outcomes and performance indicators and the collaborative data-based decision-making process. The third appendix contains the 2-year outcome reports for the 24 collaboratives. (Contains 10 references.) (SLD)
