The Power of Re-engagement: Re-establishing Maine’s Head Start State Collaboration Office
Following several years of inactivity, the Maine Head Start State Collaboration Office (MHSSCO) was relocated to the University of Maine Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies in Fall 2013. The work of the MHSSCO is based on collaborations and partnerships: its re-engagement with existing collaborators and new partners, amid significant structural changes and funding cuts to Maine’s early childhood system, coincides with a promising period of systems redesign.
