Administrative Perspectives: Community Education and the Basic Functions of the School. Community Education Proven Practices II.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
Interviews with 18 superintendents, assistant superintendents, and principals in Arizona schools are presented that illustrate their views on the relationship of community education to the basic functions of the school. Focus is on how community education contributes to the regular, ongoing K-12 curriculum. Administrator responses are directed to these five questions: (1) How do you see community education relating to the overall goals of your school district? (2) How can community education assist the teachers and students at the K-12 level? (3) How can community education assist not only with the K-12 instructional program, but also with other school functions such as communicating with parents and other patrons, obtaining information relative to student needs, and what the community feels the school should be doing? (4) What are some benefits (values) of having the community involved in the school at the K-12 level? and (5) What are some examples of ways the community is involved at the K-12 level in your school district? A brief description of the school district or area served by the administrator's institution or organization follows most of the interviews. (YLB)
