Community Involvement in the I.S. 201 School Complex.
Rothenberg, Marilyn
A study of school use and community and professional interaction in a New York school complex evaluated the nature of a community controlled school demonstration project's contact with parents, community, and service organizations on a daily basis. Focus was on the interactions which took place within the school buildings. Three data collection techniques were used: a visitor's survey, an afternoon and evening mapping survey (observational techniques), and the use of archival data, primarily administrative calendars. The data revealed not only a quantitative difference between school complexes, with greater participation seen in this district, but a qualitative difference as well in the visitors' purposes. Parents became more aware of their educational rights and responsibilities, and community professionals were active in the schools. There were many ongoing activities and repeated instances of parents and teachers working together and recognizing the overlap in their goals for children. (Author/LH)
