A Close Encounter: A Report of a National Charette on Community Colleges and Community Schools.
Scigliano, Virginia S.; And Others
This monograph discusses a model, developed by conference participants using the Charette process, for facilitating the delivery of human services through the cooperative partnership of community schools, colleges, and agencies. The model is based on the premise that limited community resources require elimination of competitive systems, duplication of effort, and disorganized delivery systems in order to better provide for clients and make human services accessible and their delivery effective. Cooperative comprehensive planning would assure maximum utilization and accessibility of common resources. The model calls for identification of services through needs assessment, improved communication among institutions, agencies and community members, improved selection procedures and pre- and in-service training programs for education personnel, and development of a system for monitoring, evaluating, and improving services. The model also reviews the educational programs, facilities, services, and service populations that reflect the scope of the cooperative program, as well as a seven-step process for promoting cooperative administration efforts. Barriers to full implementation of a community education program and strategies for overcoming these barriers are suggested. (TR)
