Process Improvement Collaborative-
Patty Martin, Renate Pore, Sharon Carte and Marla Short are
participating in the CKF process improvement collaborative.
In December, 18 families were called and asked why they had
not renewed. A better response was received in the
evening vs. morning. Families were very receptive to
the calls. This small- scale research project is being
conducted in one county with the results to be sold
statewide. Our participation in this project fulfills
our simplification and coordination requirement for our CKF
project. Renate is working on a Simplification report,
which will be formatted and published.
