School and Parent Community Involvement; Career Development for Teachers and Administrators.
Home and School Inst., Washington, DC.
The Home and School Institute has developed three plans to train teachers and administrators to work more effectively with parents and the community. The basic goals of these programs are a) to improve the skills and attitudes of participants in working with parents and the community, b) to provide parent reinforcement of children's learning, c) to build more supportive community-school relationships, and d) to design and disseminate tested materials that can be of use to other schools. The first plan consists of a three-credit course in school and parent-community involvement for teachers and administrators. Overall course requirements for participants and topics covered in the course are detailed. The second plan is for a workshop over two or three in-service days and the third for a one-day in-service workshop. The document concludes with a list of their available publications. (DDO)
