Family-School Collaboration Projects in Indiana and Other States: An Overview.
Carlson, Dawn; Moore, Debra
This project identified models, practices, and existing projects, both in Indiana and throughout the United States, that demonstrated partnership efforts between families/home (particularly those families having students with disabilities) and educators/schools. This report presents a literature review on the nature, extent, effectiveness, and barriers of collaborative/partnership efforts between families/home and educators/schools. It then reports on surveys of parents, directors of special education in Indiana, and directors of special education in other states, which addressed current efforts, effective elements of programs, and barriers to partnership efforts. Brief descriptions of collaborative programs in Indiana and the other states are provided. Appendixes which make up the bulk of the document include: (1) an annotated list of 111 citations from the ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) database; (2) a 41-item bibliography used as the basis for the literature review; (3) survey forms; and (4) names and addresses of programs in states other than Indiana.
