School-College Collaboration for School Improvement: A Case Study.
Keedy, John L.; And Others
A case study in which an institute of higher education (West Georgia College) and a school district (Carroll County Schools, Georgia) collaborated on a two-year school improvement project is described. Five roles/perspectives--those of the college professor, superintendent, central office, principal, and teacher--are used to describe the three interrelated processes of collaboration, teacher change, and school improvement. A teacher collegial group project (TCG) was piloted at Temple Elementary School. The project was so successful that five high schools were invited to join the TCG program. The program continued to expand. Described are the participant perspectives in the following areas: (1) varying collaborative roles of the professor; (2) superintendents as collaborator/supporter; (3) director of secondary education as collaborator with institute of higher education (IHE), principals, and TCG facilitators; (4) principal as collaborator with the IHE and teachers; and (5) teacher collegial groups from the teacher's perspective. The meeting format and the Procedure are appended. (21 references) (SI)
