A Handbook for Community Involvement.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Administrative Services.
To help Georgia school administrators, educators, and community members, this handbook suggests ideas and plans for strengthening school-community relations and increasing community involvement in schools. The first section lays out the four steps district administrators should take in developing a systemwide community involvement program, including research, planning, action, and evaluation. In the second section are presented ideas for involving teachers, students, staff, parents, nonparents, senior citizens, business, and the news media in improving school public relations. The third section discusses ways to recruit and work with volunteers, while the fourth offers ideas on conducting school meetings, surveying the community, and orienting new teachers. A list of printed resources on school-community programs concludes the handbook. (Author/RW)
