b. Organizational Structure – Please describe:
    Your organizational structure;
    How the board functions, communicates, plans and interacts internally; and
    How the board functions, communicates, plans within the community, externally.



The Cedar County Empowerment Board consists of volunteers from the community who meet on the fourth Thursday of
each month. In addition to the standard agenda items, the board addresses other issues as they arise. The Board
consists of a hierarchical organization including three officers: President, Vice President and Treasurer . When applicable,
the Board President appoints members to committees. These committees develop recommendations which are brought to
the board for a vote at the next scheduled meeting.

The board also has a part time Secretary and a part time Coordinator. The Coordinator is responsible for establishing and
maintaining ongoing communication with all board members, accomplished primarily through electronic means.


The Cedar County Auditor’s Office performs Fiscal Agent services for the Board. These financial operatives are audited
regularly along with the rest of the County’s financial dealings. The County Board of Supervisors is kept informed of all
pertinent decisions.

Public communication is established via email, public notice boards, newspaper articles and announcements. Our CEA
website is a vital tool for communication with the public as it includes contact information, minutes, agendas, program
information and other valuable information. Every meeting provides the public opportunity to speak. The Coordinator and
board members strive to network with community groups such as the library boards, economic development groups,
school boards, chambers of commerce, interagency groups, human resource councils, etc.

SECTION II – Community Plan and Collaborative efforts to Achieve Results

Community Plan Updates
  Provide a brief list or narrative of changes, deletions, or revisions if any, to the community plan.
     (If you are seeking to be re designated as a Community Empowerment Area at this time, please submit a copy of your up to
     date plan with your annual report.)



Community Collaborative Efforts
Definition adopted by Iowa Empowerment Board: Collaboration involves parties who see different aspects of a problem. They
engage in a process through which they constructively explore their differences and search for (and implement) solutions that go
beyond their own limited vision of what is possible. (Gray, 1989). Relationships evolve toward commitment to the com on mission,
comprehensive communication and planning, polled resources and shared risks and products. Authority is vested in the
collaborative, rather than in individuals or an individual agency.

Describe at least two (2) successful collaborative efforts within the Community Empowerment Area during the last year that promote
healthy and successful children 0-5 and their families. The two examples chosen should reflect creative solutions, and a positive
engagement and commitment of the community. For each collaborative effort describe the results and explain how each example
strives to avoid duplication, enhance efforts, combine planning, and/or other progress.

1. Every year, Cedar Co. Empowerment has conducted a Preschool and Kindergarten Teacher Forum. At this Forum Preschool and
   Kindergarten teachers collaborate to develop strategic plans for their unique community and work together to increase school
   readiness skills. This is done through the forum where community plans have been developed and each school district in Cedar
   County has developed a plan of action in which their area preschool providers and kindergarten teachers get together to work on
   exchanging ideas. At the forum all teachers are given professional development in the areas of school readiness. The first yea,
   each participant received a researched based Early Literacy Curriculum, called, “Opening the World of Learning” and was trained
   on early literacy strategies. This last year, based on surveys filled out from the previous forum, teachers wanted more training on
   science curriculum, large and small motor skill development, and learning about the Early Learning Standards. We were able to
   provide to them speakers from the local AEA and area experts in these content areas. Each participant was then allowed to
   order $200.00 of curriculum or equipment for their classrooms based on the Early Learning Standards. Every year through
   Quality Improvement dollars this forum exists, and we have plans to expand it to Early Childhood Daycare providers, as well.

2. Another collaborative effort is during one of our Board Meeting discussions, we discovered that many of our services that are
   funded through Empowerment dollars were not communicating with each other the delivery of their services. Issues were
   identified and through Board discussion, plans have been made to have a community collaboration meeting where all service
   providers will attend and communication can be increased for better service delivery and collaboration of delivery systems.

SECTION V – Performance Measures: Community Empowerment School Ready Funds
All columns should have quantitative or numerical data.

School Ready Funds
These categories align with the funding parameters identified in Tool G of the Community Empowerment Tool Kit,
http://www.empowerment.state.ia.us/common/pdf/kit_tools/toolG.pdf. The categories are as follows:

 Family Support and Parent Education – Prenatal through age 3
The FY 08 SR funds that support Family Support and Parent Education Programs for families with children ages prenatal through age 3 must
have a home visitation component. For guidance on the use and reporting of these funds, refer to Tool FF in the Community Empowerment Tool
Kit, http://www.empowerment.state.ia.us/common/pdf/kit_tools/tool_ff.pdf.

 Family Support and Parent Education – Prenatal through age 5
In FY 07 the legislature designated that after allocation of all funds designated for other purposes, the CE board shall commit 60% of the
remaining funds to provide family support services and parent education fro children ages prenatal through 5. A home visitation component is not
necessary. Programs should be listed separately. For guidance on the use and reporting of these funds, refer to Tool FF in the Community
Empowerment Tool Kit, http://www.empowerment.state.ia.us/common/pdf/kit_tools/tool_ff.pdf.

 Preschool Support for Low Income Families
The FY 07 School Ready funds to assist low-income families with preschool services must be used for families at or below 200% of the federal
poverty level. However, if sufficient funds are available to meet the needs of families meeting this requirement, the CEA Board may use a sliding
scale or other co-payment provision for families above this federal poverty level. Performance measures data can be merged in this section. For
guidance on the use and reporting of these funds, refer to Tool CC (A) and Tool CC (B) in the Community Empowerment Tool Kit,
http://www.empowerment.state.ia.us/tool_kit_tools.asp.

 Professional Development Activities w/ AEA, Community Colleges
The SR funds for the purpose of Professional Development that were designated in FY 06 will not be a requirement for the use of FY 08 SR
funding. However, any carry forward funds from FY 06 that were designated for this purpose must be expended on Professional Development
activities. Note: these funds must be spent by June 30, 2008 or they will be reverted back to the state. For guidance on the use and
reporting of these funds, refer to Tool DD (A) and Tool DD (B) in the Community Empowerment Tool Kit,
http://www.empowerment.state.ia.us/tool_kit_tools.asp.

 Quality Improvement Funds
These funds must be used to improve quality of the early care, health and education programs. For guidance on the use and reporting of these
funds, refer to Tool II in the Community Empowerment Tool Kit, http://www.empowerment.state.ia.us/common/pdf/kit_tools/tool_ii.pdf.
