Division of Continuing Education at Bank Street: A Model of Collaboration. Report.
Khan, Fern J.
The Division of Continuing Education of Bank Street College of Education (BSCE) in New York City is working to change the lives of inner city children, their families, and communities by emphasizing collaboration. During the 1994-95 academic year, the division served more than 3,900 adults and children, 15 agencies, and 30 schools through the following distinct, yet interrelated program areas: (1) continuing professional education; (2) direct service delivery programs; and (3) staff development, technical assistance, and training. Among the populations served by various special projects within the BSCE's division of continuing education were the following: infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary school children; inner-city adolescents; homeless families; and educators and other staff of the schools and community-based organizations serving the community surrounding BSCE. In 1994-95, the division's activities centered around achieving the following goals: develop a long-range plan; identify new funding focusing on early intervention programs for children/families and staff working with them; implement professional development activities for staff; and expand programs to increase revenues. (Appendixes constituting approximately 60% of this document contain the following: program descriptions, 30-item bibliography of dissemination tools, information about selected program accomplishments/outcomes, organizational chart, lists of staff and funders, budget information, and long-range program goals.)
