EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
FEDERAL WORK STUDY AND COMMUNITY SERVICE
PLANNING MEETING
NOVEMBER 22, 1996

The U.S. Department of Education held a planning meeting
November 22, 1996 to develop ideas, strategies, and practical
solutions for expanding Federal Work-Study (FWS)
opportunities. The attendees included members of the financial
aid community, representatives of the Corporation for National
Service, and student employment experts. The following
points are summarized comments from participants in the
planning meeting.

PROPOSED 50% COMMUNITY SERVICE
REQUIREMENT
Many participants felt that institutions should be encouraged to
meet targets through incentives (such as the waiver in matching
funds for reading tutors) but should not be forced to meet
community service requirements. They suggested that the 50%
target should be a goal rather than a requirement. Participants
felt that at a minimum, they would need at least a year to get up
to the 50% level.

Participants described the difficulty of community service
agencies providing matching funds. Some participants stated
their institutions have large receivables balances from
community agencies, and the institutions end up paying the
agency's share of student wages.

Institutions need to exert a costly administrative effort to
deal with off-campus contracts and collections with community
agencies. Administrative requirements for off-campus jobs
include identifying jobs, recruiting students, training,
monitoring payroll, collecting timesheets, visiting the
work site, and record keeping. Comment: Some states have a
Master Contract that can be used with any community agency.

A large percentage of many institutions' students already
volunteer. Philosophically, it is difficult to rationalize a
student who is volunteering next to a student who is getting
paid for community service. Comment: FWS workers are not
volunteers. FWS community service jobs are a form of
financial aid and a form of service learning.

Transportation and availability of community service jobs,
especially in rural and residential areas, are obstacles.
Comment: Limit community service jobs to a few
programs/agencies and then provide a shuttle bus system.
Student schedules are another constraint in increasing
off-campus jobs. For on-campus jobs, students can put in a
couple of hours one day and a couple of hours another day.
Off-campus jobs have less flexible schedules. Furthermore,
some fast food restaurants pay more than FWS. Comment:
Students may be willing to accept a lower wage for a
more meaningful job.

An increase in FWS students in community service may
displace non-profit permanent staff.

Suggestion: If a certain percentage of an institution's
students volunteer, then the 50% community service
requirement should be waived.

FWS INCREASE
Participating institutions received a wide range of preliminary
increases (in terms of dollars and percentages.) Many
participants welcomed the FWS increases and thought their
institutions could use the increase in funds. However, many
expressed reservations about the proposed 50%
community service requirement (see above), i.e. they could use
the money under the 5% requirement but not under the 50%
requirement. Other institutions will not be able to increase
staff to levels where they can utilize the entire increase.

Some state schools will not be able to use all of their FWS
increase because most of their matching requirements are met
through state funds, which may not be increased.

FWS jobs provide students with valuable experiential
education that teaches students work ethic and skills.

The increase will allow larger awards, which will allow
students to stretch their experiences out.

Administrative obstacles for utilizing the FWS increase
include limited staff and excessive regulations.

Many students find their own jobs where agencies pay their
full salary. FWS shouldn't be used for jobs that are already in
place.

At one institution, the community service office, the FWS
people, the transportation department, and academic affairs
collaborated to administer community service FWS jobs.
Duties were parceled out to the collaborating groups within the
institution. Another institution is funding an FWS student to
work with the Student Activities Office in identifying
community service opportunities. A participant suggested that
institution Presidents should get involved because they have
the power to convene bipartisan groups. Comment: The
financial aid director is still going to be held accountable for
any problems with FWS. The financial aid director still
has to meet minimum technical requirements for an audit.

READING TUTORS
Most of the participants welcomed the matching requirement
waiver for reading tutors.

Participants emphasized that college students need to be
trained before they can tutor. Without training, college
students may do more harm than good. Comment: FWS
students should be able to provide the training to other
students.

The reading tutor waiver or institutional share requirements
should not be limited to preschool and elementary kids, as
many adults need reading help too.

Many FWS workers at one institution learned English as a
second language and may not make the best reading tutors.
Another representative from a community college mentioned
that elementary schools may not want reading tutors who are
themselves taking remedial training. A third institution's
students are increasingly taking classes through
telecommunications technology. These students cannot
participate in local reading tutor programs.

It is often difficult to place FWS workers in public schools.
Public schools tend to be very selective about skills and
schedules. Comment: FWS workers would have the same
responsibilities as a regular school district employee. Issues
include adequate training, lawsuits from parents, safety of kids,
and the amount of time to coordinate FWS workers.

Is it fair that a student who wants to work in a soup kitchen
can't get a matching fund waiver but a student who wants to
tutor reading can?

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF
EDUCATION

Post the list of contacts on IFAP for developing
community service jobs. Work on state commissions and
community service networks. Provide other community
service resources.

Regulatory relief would be appreciated in the following
areas.
1) Over-award of work-study funds
2) Job Location and Development (JLD) requirements
3) Reductions in financial aid because of summer FWS
earnings
4) Loss of FWS because of AFDC reforms

Create an off-campus work-study kit to provide suggestions
on how to go about administering community service FWS
jobs. (Some participants in the planning meeting described
how they handle the administration of their off-campus FWS
jobs).

Provide contact persons from elementary school districts for
reading tutor programs.

Implement a mechanism to make sure all the funds are used,
i.e. a negative consequence for institutions who don't return
unused funds in time for them to be distributed to other
schools.

Clearly communicate what is required and what is only
recommended before institutions decide to accept the FWS
allocation. The word needs to get out now or many institutions
may not take the full amount. For many campuses, FWS is
dealt with through employment offices. The Department needs
to get out the information to the right people.

QUESTIONS
Participants posed the following questions about the FWS
Program. The Department is considering these questions and
would appreciate your comments.

Some institutions will not be able to use all of the FWS
increase. Can these institutions reallocate money to nearby
schools or other schools in the State?

Will training sessions for FWS students to tutor reading
skills count toward wages? Does an FWS worker who trains
others to be reading tutors qualify for the matching fund
waiver?

Americorps vouchers don't count toward determining
student need? Can community service FWS also be excluded?

If an institution underutilizes its award, can it be carried
over to the next award year?

How are penalty statutes going to be handled for returning
FWS funds?

CORPORATION FOR NATIONAL SERVICE

1201 New York Ave. NW
Washington DC 20525
(202) 606-5000

December 2, 1996


Dear Financial Aid Administrators,

Many colleges and universities recently received notice that
they could potentially receive major increases in Federal
Work-Study funds. As you may be aware, the President has
stated that he would like at least half of these increases to be
committed to community service -- with an emphasis on
deploying 100,000 work-study students as reading
tutors.

The Department of Education recently took a dramatic step to
make such a goal more attainable: any work-study slots
dedicated to providing reading tutors to pre-K through
elementary school children would be exempt from the
institutional local match requirements.

I want to offer the assistance of the Corporation for National
Service as you develop plans for using these new work-study
positions. We view this as a historic opportunity to strengthen
community service and to demonstrate that work-study can
help to achieve an important national goal.

For those of you don't know us, the Corporation for National
Service was created in 1993 to administer several federal grant
national service programs: Learn and Serve America,
AmeriCorps* State and National, AmeriCorps*VISTA, the
National Civilian Community Corps, the Retired Senior
Volunteer Program, Foster Grandparents and Senior
Companions. We now have a strong network of community
service organizations that run well-design, structured,
effective service programs. These networks can serve as a
resource for you.

A few possible ways the national service network can help
Financial Aid Administrators are:

National Service programs can incorporate work-study
students into existing, structured volunteer efforts.

In October the Corporation for National Service contacted all
of its grantees urging them to think creatively about how they
would be able to coordinate with the Financial Aid Offices to
assist in filling these positions. You should anticipate that
some of them may contact you. They will be able to assist you
in building partnerships with community-based organizations
and to think through some of the complexities of placing
students off-campus.

All of our grantees have gone through a rigorous review
process to receive a grant. Therefore, colleges and universities
should be confident that if they place a student in a
Corporation-approved program that the program is a
high-quality program that will provide the necessary training
for the students and work effectively to solve transportation
and monitoring problems. And that if they commit themselves
to pay a match, they will do so.

Two examples of how some service programs already make
good use of work-study students:

Jumpstart AmeriCorps Program, Boston, MA and New Haven,
CT -- The Jumpstart AmeriCorps program engages college
students to work one-on-one during the school year with young
children who are struggling in preschool. During the summer,
corps members teach in teams with a mentor teacher in
preschool classrooms. More than half of Jumpstart's 150 corps
members are work-study students. They will spend 900 hours
over the next 20 months working with children to improve
reading skills. Jumpstart members come from 13 colleges and
universities in Boston and New Haven.

Ohio Wesleyan University, OH -- Ohio Wesleyan University
uses work-study students as part of their "Columbus Initiative"
that helps local elementary, middle, and high school. Based on
the "I Have a Dream" model, this program sends work-study
students to mentor and tutor children from one of the areas
most high-need communities. These children are then made a
basic offer: stay in school, stay off drugs, and keep a B
average and you'll get admitted to Ohio Wesleyan with a
full-financial aid package that will meet your financial needs.
This program has significantly improved the relationship
between the university and the neighborhoods of Columbus.

State Commissions for National and Community Service can
link colleges and universities with service programs.

Enclosed is a list of all the State Commissions for National and
Community Service. A Commission appointed by Governors
exists in all but two states to oversee national service
programs. The Commissions can help match you with service
programs in the area that are likely to be interested in utilizing
work-study students from your institutions.

Campus Compacts can share information about how other
colleges and universities are using work-study for community
service.

The Campus Compact is a national coalition of 550 college and
university presidents committed to increasing public service
opportunities for their students and to working with
communities to address local needs. The Compact has
produced a useful document regarding federal work-study
and community service. You can obtain a copy by calling the
Compact office at (401) 863-1119.

College-Based Community Service Organizations can help
manage placement and oversight of work-study students.

An increasing number of college and university campuses now
support community service centers that help to identify
community service opportunities for students. In several cases,
such as at Brown University, the community service center and
the financial aid office have developed partnerships to
administer the community work-study funds. Often the
community service centers have more extensive contacts with
non-profit organizations in the community and can help to
broker placements for work-study eligible students. In
addition, the work-study placement might be at the centers,
similarly to the campus library or other campus offices. The
community service center can then help you insure that the
students are trained and supervised and the necessary
paperwork is completed. We encourage you to explore similar
partnerships with the community service center on your
campus.

This new federal work-study money can have a powerful
effect. Students benefit from the challenge of working on
critical social issues. Colleges and universities benefit from
improved relations with the surrounding communities. And
communities benefit from the skills and energy of college
students.

Again, I urge you to contact the Commission for National and
Community Service in your state. We look forward to working
with you to think creatively about how to seize this opportunity
so that this work-study increase benefits students, colleges,
schools and communities.


With warm regards,



Harris Wofford
Chief Executive Officer
