CRU System: A Manual for Community Resource Utilization.
Phipps, Lloyd J.; And Others
Designed to assist teachers and school administrators in effective utilization of community resources within vocational-technical education programs, the manual outlines strategies in the identification, development, utilization, and evaluation of community resources available to local school districts. Section 1 provides a general introduction to the definition, identification, and value assessment of community resources. Section 2 focuses on the step-by-step procedures involved in the organization and utilization of citizens' advisory councils. Section 3 contains activities and procedures to assist councils and school personnel in the development and utilization of speakers, field trips, cooperative occupational education programs, and contractual agreements. The concluding section deals with the evaluation of citizens' advisory councils, guest speakers, field trips, and cooperative work experience programs. More than half of the document consists of four appendixes that correspond to the four preceding sections. Material in the appendixes includes samples of information and survey forms, letters, questionnaires, a citizens' advisory committee charter, recommended policies and guidelines, various contractual agreements, and evaluation/appraisal sheets.
