Next section Statewide Directives In 1991, the Governor established the Human Service Interagency Work Group, which includes directors of the Departments of Mental Health, Public Health, Social Services, Education, and the Agency on Aging. The group assesses existing systems, facilitates programmatic cooperation, and advises the Governor. In April 1991, the directors sent the Governor an action agenda for children's services and a set of principles to guide interdepartmental policy- and decision-making with regard to children and families. The principles "emphasize the importance of prevention through health, education, and family support services and recognize the role and responsibilities of families and communities in developing healthy and achieving children." Legislation Legislation requires program coordination and interagency collaboration for state and federal programs housed in the Department of Education, which may include formal written agreements, shared staff and resources, interagency and intradepartmental planning and implementation, and joint staff training. Head Start programs and other agencies must coordinate comprehensive services, and many of the federally funded programs in the state departments are required to work with community programs to provide services to specific clients. Programs housed in the Department of Education affected by legislative requirements include the following:

Extractions: TSSA Draft (v4.0) The Collaborative for Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA Collaborative) has facilitated the development of a national consensus on what P-12 administrators should know and be able to do to optimize the effective use of technology. This consensus is presented by the Collaborative (November 2001) as Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA). The Collaborative believes that comprehensive implementation of technology is, in itself, large-scale systemic reform. Leadership plays a key role in successful school reform. The CollaborativeÕs standards, therefore, focus on the role of leadership in enhancing learning and school operations through the use of technology. These standards are indicators of effective leadership for technology in schools. They define neither the minimum nor maximum level of knowledge and skills required of a leader, and are neither a comprehensive list nor a guaranteed recipe for effective technology leadership. Rather, these standards are a national consensus among educational stakeholders of what best indicates accomplished school leadership for comprehensive and effective use of technology in schools. The standards challenge almost every school administrator in some areas, yet each individual standard is attainable by the professional education leader. Although a national consensus, in no way should these standards inhibit new development, innovation, or progress for schools or for school leadership.
