Community Education, Arizona Style. A First Year Overview for the New Coordinator.
Hurst, Ellen Horiuchi
This booklet is designed to aid new community education directors in Arizona communities to design, set up, implement, and evaluate community education programs. The booklet first defines community education, sets it within the framework of the school system, and describes the director's job. In the next section, ideas for getting the job done are suggested, including working with advisory councils, producing effective meetings, keeping meeting minutes, five-step problem solvinq, funding, and using volunteers. Following this section, the booklet outlines an 11-step procedure for designing and implementing a community education program. These steps include securing a position paper for the director's job and the program; surveying what is already happening in the community; deciding what needs to happen and who can make it happen; understanding the financial structure; employing instructors; scheduling; creating publicity; conducting registration; monitoring the first night of classes; evaluating the program; and winding up the program. A final section suggests resources and persons in Arizona to contact for assistance. (KC)
