Bull, Kay Sather
The paper provides guidelines to rural school districts developing community support and resources for their gifted education programs. The following seven questions are addressed: (1) Does your gifted/talented program and community need a formal community resource development team? (2) If so, how should it be developed? (3) How can you get other programs, within and without the school, involved? (4) What kinds of things, funding sources, places, people, can you expect to solicit for students, teachers, and parents within the community? (5) Who, how, and when should you solicit materials, funds, etc? (6) What kinds of resources should you recruit outside of the community? (7) What kinds of processes should a resource developer deal with? Tables list: "thing" resources within the community, places within and around the community, roles people play and people resources, funding sources and activities, resources outside of the community, ways to get publicity, and volunteer programs.
