North Dakota State Dept. of Human Services, Bismarck. Div. of Children and Family Services.
In October 2000, the North Dakota Department of Human Services and the Head Start Collaboration Office convened the Early Care and Education Summit with the goal of developing a multi-year collaborative Early Care and Education Plan for the state. This document presents the Five-Year Visioning Plan, comprised of a vision statement, a mission statement, and an action plan for each goal: (1) expanded program development (including nontraditional child care and a coordinated service system); (2) enhanced collaboration; (3) professional development; and (4) funding. Each action plan contains objectives and a description of action steps. Also included in the report is information on the process used to collect input from the eight regional Children's Services Coordinating Committees (CSCC) and four Tribal Children's Services Coordinating Councils to be used in the development of the plan. Reports from the CSCCs were analyzed to determine the most prevalent issues and broad themes to be addressed in the state plan. A list of Summit participants is included in the report. Appended is a compilation of responses and summaries of the themes from the CSCC reports. (KB)
