A Guide to Promising Practices in Educational Partnerships.
Bodinger-deUriarte, Cristina; And Others
This guide, which is designed for individuals interested in establishing joint endeavors among schools, social service agencies, cultural institutions, businesses, industries, and/or institutions of higher education, illustrates promising practices supporting and reflecting partnership activities. Part 1 is divided into three sections detailing practices supporting partnership building in the following areas: needs assessments (educational, community, and participant-based needs assessments); project staffing (transition of key personnel and volunteer project managers); and initiating activities (identifying and recruiting partners, recruiting volunteers, and recruiting partners). Part 2 includes four sections in which promising practices representing partnership activities in the following areas are described: staff development (cross-agency training, teacher-tutor training, school-based master's degrees); student support services (peer tutor-mentors and business mentors and coaches); school-to-work transition (articulated curricula, job skills workshops, job shadows, health career internships, and business and instructional internships); and community involvement (parent education, resource directories, and public hearings). Concluding the guide is a profile of one promising partnership that encompasses many of the practices described. Appended are the names/addresses of the members of the Educational Partnership Study Group, which conducted the study out of which this guide grew. (MN)
