Mainlining Community Education: An Inservice Training Program for Elementary School Principals, 1977-78.
Hickey, Howard; And Others
Thirty elementary school principals from twelve Michigan urban school districts attended a series of inservice training programs emphasizing the development of management skills necessary for elementary principals to administer a comprehensive community education program. Each monthly session of the year-long program was dedicated to a specific skill area. Chapters 1 through 9 describe in detail the topics: (1) program needs assessment and introduction to the general concepts of community education; (2) interpersonal process recall; (3) parent/community involvement; (4) assessing building needs and building budget planning; (5) the Flint Community Education Model, program and process in action; (6) corrective discipline for professional personnel, improving instruction through staff evaluation; (7) the family and community structure; (8) interviewing techniques and program assessment; and (9) project evaluation and wrap-up. The appendices contain a series of building activities that have been used successfully by elementary principals to get the community involved in their schools, and a series of yearly designs for planning parent/community involvement.
