Toward More Effective Involvement of the Community in the School. An Occasional Paper.
Institute for Development of Educational Activities, Dayton, OH.
This report examines community attitudes about the schools and the extent of community involvement in the schools today. It discusses the role most traditional parent organizations have played and are playing in changing the schools. The report looks at the talent potential in the community at the local level and the crucial role the superintendent could play in helping to utilize that potential. The use of volunteers in schools is also considered. The technical facilities of business and industry are considered for potential use in vocational education. The report concludes with a summary and some recommendations on how the school and community could work together more effectively. (DN)
