Summer Intensive 2003
In 2000, all ABE programs and MIFP WorkForce providers were requested to develop an MOU – a Memorandum of Understanding. In order to be eligible for continued state funding, this document was required of ABE agencies. The intent of this document was to create a forum for co-existing ABE’s and MFIP providers to determine how their services could most effectively serve their common customer through collaborative efforts. (Attachment A – example of an MOU)
As MFIP rules have changed and ABE programs continue to seek to deliver a more effective service to assist individuals in having the skills to obtain meaningful employment, revisiting the existing MOU may be warranted.
One of the key pieces of information within the MOU is identifying how information will be exchanged between agencies. Included in this packet are 3 different forms created to share information in the Marshall area:
1. Initial Referral Form completed by the client’s MFIP counselor
2. Assessment information Form to be completed by ABE staff and returned to the appropriate MFIP counselor within 2 weeks of the client entering an ABE program/class
3. Client Progress Form to be sent to the MFIP counselor following the initial 2 week assessment. This form will be sent on a monthly or weekly basis as information changes or is needed by the MFIP counselor.
Although the examples of these forms may work in one area, other areas may want to create their own, or modify these examples, to reflect their situation and needs.
