• Lakes Country Service Cooperative's ECFE Consortium works to enhance ECFE/School Readiness programming, encourage cooperative planning and sharing of resources, and provide linkages for interagency coordination and collaboration. The Regional ECFE Coordinator facilitates networking meetings, plans professional development, meets with participating district staff, provides on-site observations of new teachers and works with staff to identify and offer professional development training specific to ECFE and School Readiness Programs.

    The Regional ECFE Coordinator provides consultation to coordinators, teachers, districts and local advisory councils. Districts who join the ECFE consortium may contract for staff through LCSC.  This service provides recruiting, interviewing and orientation and support for new staff.  Twenty-six (26) ECFE/School Readiness and Caring Connections teachers working in fifty-six (56) positions are contracted through LCSC.
