Building a Full Service School: Florida's Model of Collaboration for School-Based and School-Linked Services.
Calfee, Carol; Meredith, Mimi, Ed.; Wittwer, Frank
This book is designed to guide readers as they consider establishing a full-service school in their community. Drawing on a working model with a 5-year history of development and implementation, the book shows how schools and community social, welfare, and health agencies can work together to deliver services to children and their families. After explaining what a full-service school is, the book explores some of the myths that exist about such schools, and presents a blueprint for collaboration that provides information about stakeholders and services and lists suggestions for correlating the planning process with needs and resource assessment. Ten strategies for assessing needs and resources are detailed. Separate chapters are devoted to financing the construction of a full-service school, approaching granting agencies and evaluating services, and sharing information on publicity, training, interagency agreements, and cross-training. Fourteen appendices provide stages, steps, and phases of implementation; goals; job descriptions; funding sources; program evaluation; training topics; and other information. (Contains a glossary, an annotated bibliography of 176 works, an author bibliography containing approximately 170 references, and an index.) (RJM)
