Tidwell and Associates, Inc. Releases 4 SC School District Reviews 

The South Carolina Education Oversight Committee (EOC) contracted with Tidwell and Associates to conduct an efficiency study of Clarendon 1, Barnwell 19, Lexington 4, and Dorchester 2 School Districts. The goal was to identify opportunities to improve operational efficiencies and reduce non-instructional costs. In addition to finding 112 commendations across all four districts, our team found 240 recommendations for improvement.  If the four districts implement Tidwell and Associates, Inc. 240 recommendations, a total of $11,784,684 could be saved over a five- year period.  To review the reports, please go to the SC Education Oversight Committee’s  website at http://www.eoc.sc.gov/reportsandpublications/Pages/SCDistrictEfficiencyReview.aspx


The South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services (DAODAS) Awarded $2,400,000 for a Three Year State Youth Treatment-Implementation Project

Tidwell and Associates, Inc. worked with the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services (DAODAS) to submit a State Youth Treatment-Implementation proposal which was awarded in September, 2016.  The project known as Collaboration for Success II (CFS-II), will focus on increasing the use of evidence-based assessment and substance use treatment programming throughout the state.  Use of the GAIN family of assessment tools and ACRA/ACC treatment programming will be expanded.  Initially, DAODAS will work with four treatment agencies (Keystone Substance Abuse Services, William J. McCord Adolescent Treatment Facility, Trinity Behavioral Health Services, and Ernest E. Kennedy Center) to serve approximately 880 adolescents aged 12-18.  The project expects to see improved access to treatment, increased service provision, and improved outcomes.  Expected outcomes include reduced substance use and delinquent behaviors, coupled with corresponding improvements in prosocial behavior and school engagement.  Statewide infrastructure activities will focus on improving the competencies of personnel working in adolescent serving agencies, as well as increasing the amount and diversity of funding for adolescent services.  The state Joint Council on Children and Adolescents will oversee CFS-II; Tidwell and Associates, Inc. is conducting the evaluation.
