This document provides a synthesis of the history, context, and types of educational partnerships. Examples of partnerships from simple to complex and from policy and systemic educational improvement to classroom partners are given to illustrate the different types and impacts of partnerships. The following major elements of successful partnerships are also reviewed: top-level leadership; grounding in community needs; effective public relations; clear roles and responsibilities; racial-ethnic involvement; strategic planning; effective management and staffing structure; shared decision making and interagency ownership; shared credit and recognition; appropriate, well-timed resources; technical assistance; formal agreements; action and frequent success; patience, vigilance, and increased involvement; and local ownership. Finally, the evaluation of partnerships and various outcome measures are also discussed. A list of contact sources is included. (Author/LMI)
