School-Business-University Collaborative: A New Paradigm for Urban Education.
Deighan, William P.
This paper describes a new paradigm for urban education, a school, business, and university collaboration in Cleveland (Ohio). Participating in the partnership are John F. Kennedy High School, the East Ohio Gas Company, and the Graduate Program in Administration and Supervision at John Carroll University in University Heights (Ohio). The paper focuses on three aspects of the program: (1) the additional competencies that the business partner and university associate brought to the school; (2) the synergistic influence of the business partner and the university associate on the thinking of the principal and other staff members; and (3) the resources made available to the school by the business partner and the university associate to do things that otherwise would not be done. The paper describes how helpful these opportunities were to building the spirit of the staff, students, and parents, but also how they helped a new concept for school structure and operation to emerge. Also described here is the implementation of a focused approach to the improvement of students' learning using a 5-stage staff development model, a planning team, and a pilot group of 20 teachers and administrators from the school enrolled in a 4-week summer academy to prepare themselves to implement a school improvement plan. Included are 12 references. (JB)
