Implementing the Community Schools Concept in New York City. An Agenda for Action: Follow Up Report on the January 28, 1975 Community Schools Conference.
New York City Youth Board, NY.
The recommendations resulting from the Community Conference are contained in this document. The conference focuses on the concept of community schools and its applicability to New York City. The concept involves expanding the use of schools as locations for voluntary activities and community service programs which serve not only the student population but every segment of the community. Four general assumptions which form the philosophical basis of the recommendations to implement community schools in New York City are discussed in the summary of conference proceedings. Foremost here is a recognition that the public school is a natural and logical focus for community activities. The recommendations listed are arranged in the following order: mayoral action, Board of Education action, legislative action (congressional, state legislature, and city council), community action, and union action (United Federation of Teachers and International Union of Operating Engineers). Inherent in all the recommendations is one common ingredient--cooperation. Cooperation requires no expenditure of funds. If all interested groups work cooperatively toward implementing these recommendations, all will benefit from their achievement. The failure to cooperate by any one group will seriously impede the effort. (Author/AM)
