Background Information:

The City Council approved the Youth Master Plan with the adoption of Resolution 2013-145R on 09/17/2013 following the hard work that was completed by the Core 4 (City of San Marcos, Hays County, Texas State University and San Marcos CISD) and community stakeholders throughout 2012 and 2013. 

 

Recently the Core 4 partners were brought back together and discussions were held regarding the need for a high-level position dedicated to the implementation and organization of the Youth Master Plan and its initiatives. 

 

The City of San Marcos will fund 50% of this position and the other three entities of the Core 4 equally funding the balance.  The anticipated cost to SMCISD, Hays County and Texas State University is a not to exceed amount of $20,000 per year. 

 

While all entities will work with this position, the City of San Marcos will be the contracting agent with Community Action Inc of Central Texas.  The City will also be seeking formal collaboration through a Memorandum of Agreement with our Core 4 partners. 

 

The following are the draft deliverables that Community Action is expected to perform as part of this endeavor:

§                     Partner with Texas State University, San Marcos CISD, and community-based organizations to develop out-of-school time programming focused on building a college-going and career-ready culture and increasing levels of post-secondary educational attainment among teenagers throughout Hays County

 

§                     Work in tandem with the Core 4 and members of the community at large, to develop and implement a sustainable, community-wide mentoring program for teens focused on goal-setting and educational achievement grounded in research and best-practices

 

§                     Provide quarterly progress reports on deliverables, budget, research metrics, and program implementation to members of the Core 4 entities

 

§                     Work with Texas State University faculty in conducting research on programs that produce positive mental health outcomes in young people, collect relevant social statistics, and develop indicative longitudinal metrics to gauge efficacy of programming

 

§                     Work with Core Four partners to establish best practices for working with youth around the intersection of mental health and school safety

 

§                     Work with Hays County to pilot a juvenile diversion program that incorporates preventative mental health programming and creates pathways for post-secondary success

 

§                     Provide opportunities for Texas State University faculty to conduct local research on issues pertaining to mentoring, poverty, family, at-risk youth, and children  work with the Early Childhood Coalition of Hays County to promote kindergarten readiness
