A Guide for Community School Advisory Councils.
Robbins, Wayne R.; Whitaker, Donald
Community education addresses itself to the involvement of community people in decision-making processes. By opening the local school to all members of the community, determining its needs, wants, and problems, setting priorities, and then finding the appropriate delivery systems to address these issues, the concept is becoming a significant movement within society. The community school advisory council is a vital part of the total operation of a community school. Some specific duties are to keep the director informed, to recommend new programs, and to assist in planning programs, developing resources, and disseminating information. This guide is designed to help those interested in developing and maintaining an effective community advisory council. For use by the community school director and advisory council members, it has five parts: selection and organization of a community school advisory council, building a working relationship, first steps in implementation, maintaining interest, and supplemental information. Each section is organized so that the guide may be read from beginning to end, or the sections may be used individually. (DW)
