The Southeast Collaborative Regional Organization (SCRO) is a consortium of nine Educational Collaboratives in Southeastern Massachusetts. READS Collaborative is one of the nine members. The purpose of the SCRO is to: increase quality of education in each local district by creating a wealth of combined expertise; maximize education dollars through consolidation of resources such as professional development and technology; build capacity within member districts through the sharing of management, instructional and support personnel; share knowledge, information, and best practices among members; acquaint state and local leaders, policymakers, and the public with the role that Educational Collaboratives play in promoting high quality, cost-effective school districts; and provide linkages with MOEC as the state-level collaborative organization and with the national organization of Educational Collaboratives.
The SCRO typically meets monthly as an Operating Committee of the Executive Directors of the nine collaboratives. The Governing board consisting of collaborative Executive Directors and Superintendents representing each of the collaboratives typically meets quarterly.
SCRO has created a guide to programs within the collaboratives and districts in the southeast region of Massachusetts to assist you in locating a program that will provide a challenging and successful educational setting for students who are not making adequate progress in their home district. The programs listed in this guide will meet high standards and expectations for all learners.
