Governing Boards & Community Councils: Building Successful Partnerships. Keys to Community Involvement Series: 6.
This booklet is intended to help school boards, city councils, and other governing boards establish an effective working relationship with local community councils. In the approach described in this booklet, the community council is created as a legitimate problem-solving group and works with a governing board in continuously identifying and solving problems. Topics discussed include the functions of a community council, ways to get a community council organized, ways to conduct an opinion leader survey, and council membership selection. An example of a council that is linked to a school board is used to illustrate how a governing board and its community council might work together effectively. (Author/MLF)
