Strengthening School-Community Relations.
Byrne, Robert; Powell, Edward
The authors rely on their first-hand experience in providing a wealth of practicable information for principals. The main sections of the booklet focus on planning for the public relations effort, preparing the staff and students to participate, conducting and using a community analysis, reporting information through various media, and involving the community. The purpose of the community analysis is to obtain an understanding of the community's educational philosophy in order to determine whether the community approves or disapproves of the school program. Procedures for conducting a community analysis are included. (Author/IRT)
