This document outlines two sets of agreements: the Common Assessment; and the Information and Referral Agreements. Agencies that are members of the Central, East, West, and York Local Literacy Committees in Toronto and the York region of Ontario accept these two sets of agreements.
The agreements outline a set of protocols established to provide a framework for smooth transition in the areas of agreement. The goal of this document is to ensure consistency and continuity between Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) funded programs and other services. The aim is to benefit both learners and programs by providing a constant and transparent common assessment and information and referral process across the field.
The Common Assessment Working Group (CAWG) was assembled in the fall of 2005 to develop the agreements and work with the Local Literacy Committees to adopt them.
