Family Collaboration Project: Carver Scott Educational Cooperative acts as the fiscal agent
for a grant awarded to Carver and Scott Counties by the Minnesota State Planning Agency.
This grant implements a system of integrated services, including education, social services,
public health, and corrections. Direct services for families include several new initiatives: a
"Healthy Start" program serves families with newborn children; families with school age children
can access comprehensive information, referral, and case management services; and a special
program serves families and elementary age children, who have intensive needs. The grant
funds also support the development of a broad-based community support system which
identifies family needs and studies ways to improve services or develop new services to meet
these needs.

School-To-Work has been a primary focus of the Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative since
its beginning in 1976. Programs that deliver School to Work results have existed under different
labels, including vocational education, Carl Perkins, Tech Prep, mentorship, and youth
apprenticeship. Under a new collaborative effort, however, all of these initiatives and others are
folded into one partnership project: Carver-Scott Regional School-To-Work Partnership.
This partnership helps students expand their learning both inside and outside the classroom by
integrating academic and occupational learning experiences. Students learn, practice and
demonstrate their knowledge and skills in real life service, work, community or classroom
settings. The partnership is also working to develop a system of articulation with several post-
secondary options to provide increased credit and choice for students. Active involvement from
parents, students, schools, businesses and agencies will
ensure that students receive the benefits that School-To-Work offers.
The America Reads initiative at CSEC is part of a nationwide effort to help elementary students
read at “grade-level” by third grade. The program is staffed by two VISTA volunteers and
supervised by CSEC’s volunteer coordinator. Elementary students who are struggling with
reading are referred by their classroom teacher to this after-school program, where trained high
school students work to motivate them while teaching specific skills. The program is now
available in Chaska elementary schools and planning to expand into Jordan schools also.

Volunteer Coordination: With support from United Way, CSEC has developed a new system
for volunteer recruitment, training, and referral. Currently, community members and college
students volunteer time with English as a Second Language instruction, as mentors to the “New
Beginnings” program for pregnant and parenting teens, as vocational mentors to high school
students, as Laubach instructors with a family literacy program, as teachers’ aides in a variety of
settings, and as tutors in after-school homework assistance programs.
