Report on Developing Effective Coalitions in Urban School Districts.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
In this report, seven programs in selected urban school districts which have been successful in building effective coalitions are identified and described. The programs discussed include: (1) the Business Operations Assistance Program (BOAP) and (2) the Memphis Rotary/Memphis Public Schools Program, both in Memphis, Tennessee; (3) the Greater Tucson Area Foundation, in Arizona; (4) Private Initiatives in Public Education (PIPE), in Seattle, Washington; (5) the Marcus A. Foster Educational Foundation Institute, in Oakland, California; (6) the Coalition of Eleven School Districts, in New York State; and (7) the Large District Forum of Kansas Association of School Boards. These programs cover activities which were designed to function within the school district and those designed to encourage cooperative linkages between the school district and other community agencies. A brief overview of each of the programs is given in the first section of the document, with more detailed materials about particular aspects of each program appearing in extensive appendices. Following the program overview, the document presents the results of a survey of urban school districts conducted to ascertain common trends or practices that might have facilitated and enhanced the establishment or maintenance of viable coalitions. The survey instrument appears in an appendix. (CMG)
