Looking for Resources? Try Business.
Loozen, Lu Van
Updating School Board Policies, v13 n9 Oct 1982
Businesses are helping schools in "adopt-a-school" programs, work-skill improvement programs, and in curriculum areas other than vocational or career education. The practice of "loaning" the services of business executives to schools has benefited dozens of school systems. This article identifies many programs, lists tips for schools beginning a school-business partnership, and advises school boards to have up-to-date written policies that outline the types of school-business programs they will encourage. Other topics discussed in this issue include planning and development of a school volunteer program; how to develop and update a school organizational chart; and criteria a school board should use in accepting offers of organized special interest groups to found specific curricular and extracurricular programs.
