A Team Strategy To Guide Parents by Clarifying Roles and Responsibilities of Parent Cooperative Preschool Team Members.
This practicum project defined the roles and responsibilities of parent cooperative preschool team members to help parents identify who was responsible for different functions in the co-op preschool. A 10-week intervention strategy was implemented to provide information and support to parents during the first 2 months of the school year. Strategies included development and use of a roles-responsibility survey, three orientation training sessions, and three feedback systems including supervision. The project introduced awareness of roles-responsibilities in a parent co-operative preschool, a format to address them, and a process to continue support. Evaluation results indicated that the project encouraged the class team members--including teacher, parent instructor, and parent coordinator--in their awareness and agreement of roles-responsibilities operating in the class. (Six appendices include the questionnaire, surveys, parent letters, survey results, a calendar for implementation, and samples of training materials. Contains 67 references.) (AP)
