Using Technology To Develop Programs of School, Family, and Community Partnerships.
Simon, Beth S.; Salinas, Karen Clark; Epstein, Joyce L.; Sanders, Mavis G.
Researchers established the National Network of Partnership Schools at Johns Hopkins University's Center on School, Family, and Community Partnerships to guide schools, districts, and state departments of education to create positive, permanent programs of partnership, to recognize and disseminate their efforts, and to learn from the various approaches that are implemented in diverse policy environments and at all levels of schooling. This paper presents a "virtual tour" of the National Network of Partnership Schools' Web site. The Web site (http://www.csos.jhu.edu/p2000) is designed as a technological tool to help members develop, maintain, and improve their partnership programs. The Web site consists of eight main sections that organize the content. From the eight "buttons" on the home page (Partnership Program, Membership, Frequently Asked Questions, Membership Services, Publications, In the Spotlight, Contact the Staff, and Links), visitors branch off into content-rich pages that describe the information necessary to become a member of the Network and to strengthen current members' partnership programs. Future plans for the Web site are also discussed. (Author/LPP)
