Different Approaches to Shared Services.
Hall, Calvin W.
Divided into four major sections, this collection of articles addresses the sharing of services in California by school districts or by districts and other agencies. The section on advertising and recruitment makes a case for districts to share in the purchase of employment ads or in the hiring of a recruiter. A reprint of an article about a "purchasing pool" formed by Sacramento area school districts is found in the second section. The third section contains four articles: the first highlights a California transportation cooperative formed by the Mid-Placer Public Schools; the second describes cooperative efforts at transportation among elementary and high school districts in Antelope Valley; the third is on a computerized school transportation service managed cooperatively by the San Francisco Unified School District and a private contractor; and the fourth deals with a transportation program in Los Angeles in which services are provided jointly by private contractors, school districts, and public transportation systems. The section on shared insurance acquisition details a shared insurance program in Los Angeles County and reprints several articles on shared insurance programs. A lengthy appendix reprints the Antelope Valley schools' transportation agency joint power agreement. (JM)
