The Grassroots Connections: Strategies for Increasing Synergy Between Schools and Agencies.
Tarleau, Alison T.
Presented by the Region VII Child Welfare Training Center, this collection of four papers examines aspects of interaction between schools and social agencies which could be exploited more fully to the benefit of both organizations. The first paper, a presentation from the Sixth Rural Institute of Social Work in Rural Areas entitled "Synergistic Modeling: Methods of Cooperation among Rural Schools and Agencies," presents general suggestions and gives a case study of the methods employed in Region II. The second paper, "Developing Access for Agencies to Information in University Learning Resource Collections/Libraries," discusses the advantages and disadvantages of developing access to university learning resource collections/libraries and makes specific suggestions for developing methods of expanding access. The third and fourth selections were developed for presentation at the annual retreat of the Kansas Council on Social Work Education. The third, "Ideas About How the Kansas Universities and Colleges Can Support SRS (Social and Rehabilitation Services) in Meeting Its Staff Training Needs," has implications beyond the boundaries of Kansas despite its specific state focus. The fourth selection is a checklist of methods which enable schools and agencies to work cooperatively. (CM)
