Project SCOPE--A Working Partnership.
Newman, Arlene; Baum, Judith
After two semesters of implementation, Project SCOPE (School and College Organized to Promote Excellence) has created a viable structure of collaboration between Public School 152 and Brooklyn College (New York) and has undertaken a range of activities which have already had positive influence on the morale and performance of parents, students, and teachers. The goal of Project SCOPE is to form a working partnership between the college and the principal, administrators, teachers, school board members, and parents of the school to provide an environment in which the students can learn. Evaluation information was gathered through observations and non-structured interviews with the initiator of the project, key school personnel, and parents. The following components are discussed: (1) the council that directs operations; (2) the school-college relationship; and (3) parent involvement. The following recommendations for improvement are suggested: (1) continue and expand support; (2) offer opportunities for other schools to use the project as a model; (3) increase structured interaction among parents, staff, and college; (4) continue to provide opportunities for teachers to enhance their professional careers; and (5) make the highly successful summer workshop for staff, parents, and college an annual event.
