Ingham GSC Meetings

Ingham Great Start Collaborative Vision Statement:
Every child ready to succeed in school and life.”

The Ingham Great Start Collaborative (GSC) serves as the multipurpose collaborative advisory board for human services agencies in the greater Lansing area. Guided by Michigan’s four early childhood outcomes, the Ingham GSC has developed four Groups (and associated working action agendas). This was informed by an extensive strategic planning process, and progress towards each outcome is reported on at each meeting (see below).

Outcome 1: Children are born healthy.

Outcome 2: Children are healthy, thriving, and developmentally on track from birth to 3rd grade.

Outcome 3: Children are developmentally ready to succeed in school at the time of school entry.

Outcome 4: Children are prepared to succeed in 4th grade and beyond by reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade.

The Ingham GSC typically meets monthly at Ingham ISD Early Childhood Services (map) from 1-3:00 pm. At each meeting there are progress reports on the Early Childhood Action Agenda as well as committee initiatives and updates from all participants on issues of interest. There is also time set aside for updates from all participants and discussion of other issues of interest.
