Report of the Governor's Task Force on Community Schools, June 1979.
Guglielmino, Lucy M., Ed.
The Governor's Task Force on Community Schools studied the availability of unused and underutilized space in Florida's public school facilities; the possibilities for broader and more imaginative use of existing school facilities for community purposes so that they might serve all age groups during an expanded time period; the need for conveniently located facilities for service delivery by state, local, and other service agencies, both public and private; the cost-effectiveness of coordination and joint use of public facilities; the program efficiency that could result from co-location of human service functions; and the barriers to the implementation of joint use of public facilities and cooperative, coordinated efforts. The findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the task force are reported in three separate sections reflecting the major categories the task force's information fell into: the climate for further implementation of the community schools in Florida, actual and possible utilization of Florida schools, and the interagency coordination and cooperation necessary for increased utilization. A separate section presents the recommendation for a governor's commission on community education. (Author/IRT)
