Handbook for Community College/Community School Cooperative Relationships: A Case Study of Cooperation in Clackamas County, Oregon.
Warford, Ann Ritter
The intent of this report is to relate the events that have taken place at Clackamas Community College (CCC) since the beginnings of its community education involvement with the community schools in its district, which have led to the development of successful cooperative relationships that have gained national recognition. The college's first statement of philosophy provided for a broad community services program. Later policies adopted by the Board of Education supported the involvement of the college in the growth of the community schools--offering encouragement, leadership, resources, and training whenever possible. In addition to describing CCC involvement in the establishment of nine community schools and in their periods of development, this report outlines the mechanics of cooperative efforts in the following areas: (1) the roles of the community college and the community schools in community education; (2) statements of philosophy; (3) cooperative agreements; (4) organizational charts and job descriptions; (5) staffing models; (6) advisory councils; (7) interest surveys and evaluation procedures; (8) funding; (9) salaries and fee policies; and (10) six components of community education. Illustrations and examples are provided in each section. In addition, the future possibilities of community college/community school cooperation in Clackamas County are explored. (MB)
