TEXT OF COMMITTEE REPORTS
Committee Report #1
The Human Services Committee conducted a public meeting on Tues, Dec 15, 2009 at 3:06pm in the Sullivan Chamber. The meeting was held for the purpose of a summary of the achievements and discussion of the future of Cambridge's Baby University, which is based on the Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) Baby College parent education program, and plans for development of a Cambridge program modeled on the HCZ Office of College Success to provide guidance and assistance to help students stay at college until graduation.

Present at the meeting were Councillor Kenneth E. Reeves; Margaret Drury, City Clerk; and John Clifford.

Also present were Dr. Jeffrey Young, Superintendent of the Cambridge Public School Department (CPSD); Ellen Semonoff, Assistant City Manager for Human Services; Chief Public Health Officer Claude Jacob, Cambridge Public Health Department (CPHD); Police Commissioner Robert Haas; Mary Wong, Director of the Kids' Council, Department of Human Service Programs (DHSP); Mina Reddy, Director of the Community Learning Center, DHSP; Daryl Mark, Cambridge Public Library; Merline Sylvain-Williams, Baby U Care Worker; Betsy Abrams, Baby U Coordinator; Michelle Godfrey, Director, Center for Families; Jennifer Bailey, Agenda For Children Literacy Initiative; Satori Bailey, Cambridge Community Foundation; Cornelia Heise-Baigorria, Director, Home-Based Early Education Program, CPSD; Lieutenant Leonard DiPietro, Cambridge Police Department; Sue Walsh, Director of the Office of Workforce Development, DHSP; Allyson Allen DHSP; Susie Flug, DHSP; Michelle Farnum, Director of Youth Programs, DHSP; Steven Swanger, Director, the Workforce Program, Cambridge Housing Authority (CHA); Joyce Colman, Cambridge Guidance Center; Moncrieff Cochsan, Tufts University Mystic Children's Zone; Toni Bee, Margaret Fuller House; Emily Bullen, East End House; Robert Bridgeman, Phillips Brooks House Association; Tara Venkatraman, Phillips Brooks House Association; and Christopher Loney, Phillips Brooks House Association.

Councillor Reeves convened the meeting and began the meeting by noting that this is the last meeting of the Human Services Committee for the 2008-2009 City Council term. He said that since the main focus of the committee this term has been on looking at the Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) and how Cambridge might adapt some of its programs, the purpose the meeting was to receive an update at the progress that the City has made in developing Baby U, a parent education program for parents of young children based on the Harlem Children's conference Zone (HCZ) Baby College and to discuss ongoing planning for development a program to support Cambridge's first generation college students to graduate from college, similar to the HCZ Office of College.

Councillor Reeves started with a description of the HCZ "Changing the Odds" conference held by HCZ that he and Dr. Turk attended on Nov 9 and 10, 2009 and distributed a copy of the schedule, which includes a description of the workshops and presenters (Attachment A). The workshop was for participants that had already attended a prior workshop held by HCZ. He noted the focus on evaluation and performance. In response to a request from Mr. Jacob for copies of the material presented, he said that videos are being produced and his aide would make copies of the video available when they receive them. Ms. Semonoff said that some are available on the internet.

He then invited Ms. Semonoff to provide an update on Cambridge's Baby U pilot project. Ms. Semonoff distributed a document entitled "Baby U Plot Project Progress Report (Attachment B), and she, Betsy Abrams, who is now the Baby U Coordinator, and Merline Sylvain-Williams, Baby U Careworker, summarized the material in the attached report. Ms. Godfrey then described the outreach and submitted a copy of the flyer being used as part of the outreach (Attachment C).

Councillor Reeves said that he had heard some objections from providers who believe that the settlement houses should have a more central role. Ms. Semonoff said that a steering committee of 11 agencies has been formed, a broadly representative group. Ms. Colman stated that this is a truly collaborative program and does not feel like a city program. She added that this is a groundbreaking effort to intentionally make the program very collaborative. There is a very open steering committee. It was agreed that participation of and collaboration with the CPSD is essential. Superintendent Young said that they would be happy to appoint someone from the School Department to serve on the steering committee if that would be helpful. Councillor Reeves thanked and congratulated all involved on their effort and what they have achieved to date. He then moved to a discussion of planning for an office of college success in Cambridge.

Councillor Reeves submitted a report from the HCZ on their College Success Office (Attachment D) and began the discussion with a description of some of the situations and difficulties that young CRLS graduates have encountered in attempting to get college degrees. He gave the example of a young man who has been a student at Northeastern for six years and now needs to find somewhere less expensive where he can get a degree. He said that before Cambridge takes on a college success program we need to learn a lot more about the obstacles encountered by such students. Councillor Reeves also said that right from the first Baby U session and all throughout their children's educations, parents must be supported in seeing a college degree as the goal for their children. There must be an implicit suggestion in every Baby U session that their children are going to college. Mr. Swanger agreed with the need to create a culture of expectation for kids that starts at birth and runs throughout the community.

Vice Mayor Seidel said that from the work of the Middle School Commission which he co-chaired, the participants learned that grades 6-8 is where kids get a sense of who they are and want to be. Mr. Bridgeman said that the transition from 8th grade to high school is also very important. We need to be sure that by the 7th and 8th grade, kids have a clear sense of college on the horizon and some plan for how they will get through high school.

In response to a question from Councillor Reeves, Superintendent Young said that the middle grades, ages 11-14 are a critical time. He added that nevertheless he does not us to get locked into the idea that high school is too late. Councillor Reeves agreed. He said that a lot of kids "wake up" in the 11th grade, which is really quite late. Superintendent Young said that CPSD has sent out a survey to all of the parents and staff of middle school students. The results are not all in yet, but the early returns indicate that Cambridge does well in helping kids in projects, but that we do not do well in preparing 8th graders for high school.

Ms. Reddy said that the Baby U working group benefited from the work of the 0-8 Council and suggested that perhaps this group should create a subgroup that takes on the question of how to adapt the HCZ Office of College Success model to best help Cambridge students succeed in college. Councillor Reeves asked all those who would be willing to work on this issue to give their names to the City Clerk. The following persons are on this list: Mina Reddy, Steve Swanger, Harriet Finck, Robert Bridgeman, Susie Flug, Michelle Farnham, Leonard DiPietro, John Clifford, Tara Yenicatraman and Emily Bullen.

Ms. Semonoff said that whatever comes out of Cambridge does not have to be an entity. The Kids most at risk are the kids whose parents did not go to college or did not go to college in the US. There are several people around this table who are working with families with kids in this situation. Mr. Swanger agreed. He stated that college success is not going to come from an eight week workshop. It will come when all the people and agencies who guide these kids are working on the same goals and with the same assumptions.

Councillor Reeves said that he believes that this committee has been the most successful committee because of the people who sat at this table in these meetings. He again thanked all those present for their participation, with special thanks to the group that has prepared the Baby U draft. The meeting was adjourned at 4:25pm.

For the Committee,
Councillor Kenneth E. Reeves, Chair
