Communicating with the Community. Leader's Manual. Keys to School Boardsmanship. A Program of Continuing Education for School Board Members.
Wolfe, Leslie G.
The materials in this manual are designed to help workshop leaders prepare for and present a workshop for school board members on how to contribute to improved communications between the school organization and the community. The workshop covers one process board members and superintendents can use when determining how to communicate school needs, interests, and transactions to the community, and how to encourage the community to express its own needs and interests effectively. The manual consists of six sections: an introduction; three sections on planning, presenting, and evaluating the workshop; a selection of resource materials; and a booklet for workshop participants. The discussion of planning contains information on the focus and scope of the workshop, familiarization with resource materials, workshop presentation techniques and skills, suitable grouping of participants, and equipment needed. The presentation section includes sequential descriptions of workshop activities, instructions for using participant materials and audiovisual aid, and information on leader focuses for each activity. The resource materials provided include papers on community relations and masters from which transparencies for projection at the workshop can be reproduced. (Author/PGD)
