This national reference manual identifies exemplary local community education projects and highlights the status of statewide community education initiatives and support networks. Information for the directory was gathered through the Community Education Network and National Community Education Association. Preliminary information in the directory includes a description of the development of the state and local profiles, information on the evolution of community education networks, and characteristics of successful local projects. These sections are followed by the body of the document, which provides profiles of state networks and local projects in all 50 states. Information is offered about state contacts, state networks, and 132 exemplary local projects. For local projects, information is included about type of school district providing the project, staffing, community schools, budget, program administration and features, and addresses and telephone numbers.
