Partnerships in Education. A Handbook.
Allegheny Conference on Community Development, Pittsburgh, PA.; Pennsylvania Governor's Private Sector Initiatives Task Force, Harrisburg. Office of Human Resources Committee of the Cabinet.; Public Education Fund, Pittsburgh, PA.; Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
This handbook is intended to help communities (particularly, but not exclusively, in Pennsylvania) develop adopt-a-school partnerships between local schools and businesses. Advantages of partnerships for both schools and their potential business partner are reviewed, and brief profiles of possible cooperative projects (many of which have already been attempted in Pennsylvania) are presented. Then, suggestions are given for obtaining sponsorship and funding, coordinating the program, and identifying potential business partners. A checklist outlining steps in the development cycle of a partnership and advice on encouraging program expansion are provided. Finally, for those seeking resource materials and/or information about workshops, addresses of educational agencies and organizations in Pennsylvania are listed. (KH)
