A Guide to Requesting School Board Approval for Before and After School Child Care.
Mintzer, Janet L.
This guide outlines a step-by-step procedure for requesting school board approval for school-based child care programs. Individuals or groups contemplating the creation of such programs need to: (1) gain community support through public meetings; (2) approach school board members and district officials to gauge their level of support; (3) document the need for child care in the district through the use of a parent survey or other method; (4) prepare a detailed proposal; and (5) formally address the school board. Specific points of persuasion to help convince school board members and district officials of the need for before- and after-school child care programs are discussed. Examples of a parent survey form, sample operational budgets for after-school and full-day summer child care programs, and profiles of organizational models of three existing programs in southeastern Pennsylvania are provided.
