National School District Partnership Survey. Statistical Report.
National Association of Partners in Education, Inc., Alexandria, VA.
Findings of a national survey that gathered information about the status of volunteer and partnership programs are presented in this report. Data were derived from a survey that was mailed to 1,532 school districts during March to August 1991. Out of 1,337 usable responses, 738 districts indicated the existence of partnerships during the 1989-90 school year. Each school provided information about the type of area served, number of volunteers, the dollar value of goods and services realized, type of sponsors, contacts, objectives and activities, and target populations. Findings indicate that partnership program activities were closely related to the needs identified in the national education goals--improved academic achievement in the content subjects, substance abuse prevention, and dropout reduction. The importance of business/community groups' contributions to educational improvement is confirmed and recommendations are made. Also included are the National Association of Partners in Education, Inc. (NAPE) mission statement and lists of its board of directors and publications. Twelve figures are included. Appendices contain the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) 1989 survey report, a standard error chart and nine tables of survey findings, and a copy of the NAPE survey. (LMI)
