School-Sanctioned Community Service. The State Perspective.
Cunningham, Claire E.
This report provides materials developed by a project to determine the extent to which the states are involved in school-sanctioned community service programs. Chapter 1 summarizes responses of state education agency (SEA) staff to a questionnaire that focused on permission for student participation in school-sanctioned community service programs, state policies relating to community service as part of the curriculum, state policies hampering efforts to implement community service programs, new community service initiatives being considered at the state level, SEA support for community service programs, and impact of recent education reforms on program implementation. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 list strategies for encouraging local education agencies to develop community service programs, issues to be addressed when developing a school-sanctioned community service program, and contact persons working with model programs identified by the SEA correspondents. Appendixes include the survey instrument, state policies and mandates affecting community service as part of the curriculum, and a listing of volunteer and service organizations. (YLB)
