School Linked Services--So That Schools Can Educate and Children Can Learn, Part 2. Insights on Educational Policy and Practice, Number 22.
Pollard, Joyce S.
Insights on Educational Policy and Practice, n22 Aug 1990
The role of state and local policymakers in creating an environment conducive to cooperation between schools and human services agencies is discussed in this educational policy bulletin. To ensure effective service delivery programs and enabling policies, policymakers must consider: (1) the qualities of collaborative service delivery programs, which are comprehensive, flexible, and family and community oriented; and (2) the nature of the policy context, which presents both obstacles and opportunities. Six policy concerns are presented, which address such issues as providing comprehensive service delivery, developing alternative funding strategies, providing family support, ensuring the quality of personnel, and providing leadership.
