Axelrod, Valija; And Others
Materials contained in the 16 volumes that make up the Rural America Series suggest practices through which rural schools can meet local community needs and realize their potential for career program delivery. This procedural handbook, one of three support functions guides in the series, is based on the premise that community cooperation, through a variety of strategies and under the school's sponsorship and coordination, is a source of talent for career guidance. The handbook is intended to do the following: (1) Show schools how to identify needs in the local community, (2) show schools how to identify talent and information to meet these identified needs, (3) indicate the various levels at which the community can become involved in the career guidance program of the rural school, (4) suggest strategies for involving community members and organizations in the career guidance program of rural schools, (5) delineate strategies for evaluating school-community cooperation, (6) suggest goals and objectives for school-community cooperation in the career guidance program, (7) suggest means to train staff to use a variety of school-community cooperation techniques, and (8) upgrade the image of the rural career guidance program through improved school-community cooperation.
