Child Welfare and Education Learning Community (CWELC)

Building Collaborations Across Child Welfare and Education Systems

How do we connect child welfare and education professionals who work with the same children in different environments? CYFC led the Minnesota contingent of practitioners and policymakers to find strategies for collaboration, data sharing, and systems changes for social services.

Statewide Focus Group

“Creative solutions” and “Data, data, data” — these are two of the four key messages the Minnesota team uncovered during a statewide focus group study in 2014 with social service and education professionals on collaboration across child welfare and education systems.

“Communication is key to collaboration.” This comment and others came from the online survey that the Minnesota team conducted March 2014 about how Minnesota professionals collaborate across child welfare and education systems.
