Building School-Community Partnerships. An Information Packet for Education Agencies.
Engel, Stephen, Ed.; And Others
The school-community process is a system that brings citizens and educators together to help solve school problems and plan educational improvement. This handbook describes that process and how it can foster a three-way partnership among local, regional, and state education agencies. Some of the topics covered include planning for change, selecting and guiding a process facilitator, sharing information among project participants, making use of recent research, and expanding and evaluating a project. A case study of a school district's project is examined along with background information supplied by individual authors on the following subjects: the school-community process at the local, state, and regional levels; alternative ways to organize a project; and estimated costs. Also included is a ready-to-use questionnaire measuring public involvement in educational decision-making and related agency support. (Author/LD)
