College and University Partnerships with School Districts.
Craig, Sam B., Jr.
Basic principles for the establishment of successful higher education/school district partnerships are given based upon experiences in Pennsylvania. In examining the need for school districts to obtain technical assistance for development and improvement, two themes are isolated: improvement in learning, and improvement in professional preparation and certification. Successful partnerships are seen to have four principles as their basis: (1) institutional relationships of mutual benefit with specified roles and expectations; (2) individual "service coordinators" in the institutions of higher education to handle school district requests for assistance; (3) service evaluation by both partners; and (4) opportunities for college and university professors to gain current professional experiences in the basic schools. A brief description of state funding and services provided to date in Pennsylvania are given. (MJB)
