Community Partnership

Collaboration of Appropriate Partners for Maximizing Effectiveness of Project Services

The Collaborative Design team and Zone Advisory Committee will include professors, LEA school teachers and administrators, community representatives (including parents/guardians) and external reform experts. To maximize collaboration within and between these groups, a virtual collaborative workspace has been created.

Representatives from all partner groups (the college, district, high need schools, community-based organizations) will serve on the CUE Leadership Team, Zone Advisory Committee and Oversight committee. Members of these groups will use formative data to inform continuous improvement of the program. Partners involved in this change effort will apply identified approaches to systems change in order to identify and implement needed adjustments to the program. Collaborative efforts will be monitored to assess the level of integration in the partners’ purpose, strategies and tasks, leadership and decision-making, and interpersonal and communications.
