Rural Hispanic Community. Community Education Proven Practices II. Federally Funded Local Community Education Projects.
Focusing on the Chama Valley School District's attempt to plan and implement a community council as a foundation for community education efforts in the rural Hispanic community of Chama, this publication offers "hands-on" suggestions in methods of implementing a community education program. Following a description of the school district is a discussion of the documentation/management system employed in the Chama Valley Schools Community Education program. The six sections outline the steps taken to conduct a community council election, offer suggestions on setting up a training event for the community council, outline the steps taken to complete a training event by the person in charge of completing or conducting training for the council, discuss the evaluation of the community council, outline the steps to implement a comprehensive community education program, and detail the activities involved in identifying needs and planning to meet those needs through activities associated with a comprehensive community education program. General categories of interest reflected in the needs assessment are summarized. Attachments include copies of the California Teacher Corps Network Checklist for Planning Meetings form, the survey instrument for community survey, the documentation/management plans for conducting community council meetings and training activities, the evaluation questionnaire, and a graph of council members responses to questions.
