Increasing Guidance Effectiveness through School-Community Cooperation. A Guide to Developing Cooperative Relationships between Schools and Business, Industry and Labor in Rural Communities.
Stein, Walter M.; And Others
This book, one of a series designed for rural career guidance programs, provides guidelines for creating cooperative agreements between career guidance personnel and business, industry, labor personnel, and others in the community to benefit students in rural/small school environments. Chapter 1 explains the term "cooperative agreements," defines other terms used in the guide, presents author assumptions, and defines the nature of the guide. Chapter 2 presents the reader with some background information about rural communities, cooperative relationships, and the research leading to the development of this guide. Chapter 3, leadership and community support, describes the roles of those planning and implementing cooperative agreements and suggests some ways for gaining support for these activities in the school and community. Chapter 4 outlines in detail the steps to be taken in planning and implementing a cooperative agreement. Chapters 5-9 give specific examples of existing cooperative agreements, ranging from plans for grades K-6 through postsecondary, adults, and teachers. Appended materials include a glossary of terms, responsibilities and qualifications of a program coordinator, resource catalog and survey sheets, related legislation, a sample of agencies that can help such programs, a bibliography, and an index of agreement applications. Charts illustrate the material throughout the guide. (CT)
