The OST Initiative has three active work groups that are currently scheduled on an ad hoc basis.

Community Engagement:
This work group will be focused on thinking about how to connect the community more directly to OST. In relation to the operational plan, this will take the form of volunteerism and developing civic engagement metrics.

Quality Programming:
This group will be sub-divided into three areas—workforce, quality metrics and early literacy.

Partnerships:
This group will be animated once we have the Citywide OST Initiative Coordinator in place and begin to focus on developing an OST Zone strategy.
