An Introduction to the Community School Concept.
This paper summarizes and synthesizes perspectives gleaned from the literature on community schools. Basic characteristics of such schools are that community schools (1) have something for everyone, (2) provide opportunities for citizens to apply solutions to problems, and (3) help maintain open channels of communication with the community. Specific programs are examined and evaluated. A summary of apparent advantages and disadvantages in maintaining a year round community school program are presented. Since this study is intended as an introduction to the community school concept, educational innovations pertinent to the area are not fully discussed, but several are mentioned in passing as worthy of consideration.
