Liontos, Lynn Balster
Recommendations for starting a process of collaboration between public schools and social service agencies are offered in this digest. The first step, information gathering, is discussed, as well as strategies for carrying out other stages in the process--selecting, approaching, and meeting with participants; problem solving; and maintaining the relationship. A conclusion is that joint ventures between schools and agencies increases accessibility to services and facilitates interagency communication. (8 references) (LMI)
