Business/School Partnerships: A Path to Effective School Restructuring.
Rigden, Diana W.
General guidelines for companies interested in supporting school-based restructuring are offered in this booklet. Following a brief review of the nature and types of partnerships, chapter 2 examines partnerships within the context of school restructuring outcomes and identifies some essential components for developing a reform-model partnership. Three examples of corporate reform-model partnerships are described as illustrations of the development process in chapter 3, focusing on program similarities and potential difficulties. Chapter 4 discusses the five steps of the development process: agreement on specific goals; development of strategies for involvement; identification of costs; assessment and evaluation; and management of the partnership relationship. A recommendation is made for considering the implementation strategy in context, recognizing local needs and politics. Overall reform principles, however, remain constant for formulating general guidelines. An enclosure provides a graph of strategies for involvement. A list of 18 suggested readings is included. (LMI)
