The Southeast Collaborative Regional Organization (S.C.R.O.) is a consortium of nine Educational Collaboratives in Southeastern Massachusetts. Southeastern Massachusetts Educational Collaborative is one of the nine members. The purpose of the S.C.R.O. is to: increase quality of education in each local district by creating a wealth of combined expertise; maximize education dollars through consolidation of resources such as professional development and technology; build capacity within member districts through the sharing of management, instructional and support personnel; share knowledge, information, and best practices among members; acquaint state and local leaders, policymakers, and the public with the role Educational Collaboratives play in promoting high quality, cost-effective school districts; and provide linkages with MOEC as the state-level collaborative organization and with the national organization of Educational Collaboratives.
