Participants Needed for Breakthrough Series Collaborative

9/1/2006:   Casey Family Programs is sponsoring a Breakthrough Series Collaborative (BSC) on Improving Educational Continuity and School Stability for Children in Out-of-Home Care. Fifteen public child welfare agencies and tribes will be selected to participate in the initiative by sharing their knowledge, challenges, and successes over the course of a year.

State agencies in state-administered systems, county agencies in county-administered systems, and tribal agencies or tribal consortiums are invited to apply. These agencies or tribes must demonstrate a commitment to improving educational continuity and school stability and be willing to identify, develop, and test potentially promising strategies for improving practices in their education and child welfare systems.

The agencies will be selected through a competitive application process. Visit Casey Family Programs online for additional information about the Breakthrough Series Collaborative and to download application forms.

The deadline for completed applications is 5:00 p.m. ET, Monday, October 2, 2006. All interested public child welfare agencies or tribes are asked to submit an "Interest in Applying" form no later than Wednesday, September 6, 2006. For more information, contact Kary James at kjames@casey.org.
