The Implementation, Evaluation and Refinement of the Home-School-Community Relations Interaction Model. Technical Report No. 414.
Karges, Marjorie L.
One of the objectives of this study was to implement the school-community relations model of interaction to determine whether the specified patterns and processes were viable. Implementation began with a needs assessment, followed by an operational process involving four approaches: (1) a schoolwide focus on reporting pupil progress; (2) a graduate course on school-community relations; (3) individuals working on activities related to school-community relations deficiencies; and (4) the project coordinator implementing activities directed at needed school-community relations. Evaluation data indicated that it is possible for a school to implement the school-community relations. Informal observation revealed that the presence of the project coordinator raised the awareness of the staff members in implementing new ideas convinced other members of the staff to become involved in school-community relations.
