LINC (Local Interagency Needs Assessment Capabilities) July 1, 1977 - September 30, 1978. Final Project Report.
Witkin, Belle Ruth; And Others
The Local Interagency Needs Assessment Capabilities Program (LINC) was a partnership project to develop and demonstrate a model for interagency cooperation between city government and school districts, specifically in conducting needs assessments and increasing local capabilities for planning to meet human services and educational needs. It operated from July, 1977, through September, 1978, in Emeryville, California. Four agencies participated: the city of Emeryville; Emery Unified School District; Alameda County Training and Employment Board/Associated Community Action Program; and Alameda County Office of Education. Both process and product evaluation were used. A number of problems hampered the project, including reorganization of the city government, turnover in project managers, moving of the project office three times, failure of the superintendent to attend meetings, loss of the high school's accreditation, and illness of the high school principal. Nevertheless, at least eight accomplishments of the program were recognized, including two joint planning sessions of the city council and the school board, a needs assessment survey of the community, joint construction of a minipark, a human services resource directory, and a telephone information and referral service.
