Through Collaboration for Kids you will learn a new structure for reaching out to the high-risk
child who is "unavailable to learn" because of issues outside of school, and you will find new
skills for engaging parents in their child's education and social growth. Documented
results obtained from the Collaboration for Kids team approach are significant and listed below:
Through stabilizing the child of concern, all classmates receive the benefit of more teaching and learning
time, thus increasing academic success.
- Corrected absenteeism/truancy
- Continued academic progress
- Improved test scores
- Improved behaviors
- Better use of community services
- Stabilized child and family
Collaboration for Kids answers the questions:

renewed concept of collaboration and team action, and answers the questions, "How does the
Collaboration for Kids initiative get started, and how does it relate to academic progress?"
- Who is the "unavailable child?"
- What strategies can I use to help this child?

- What tools do we need to correct truancy issues?
- How does Collaboration for Kids improve test scores?
- Will this initiative take too much of my time?
- How does this initiative help me?

as well as presenting the research, procedures, team strategies, team building, start-up policies,
