Learning Together: A Look at 20 School-Community Initiatives. Executive Summary.
A project to map the outlines of school-community initiatives for educational improvement was undertaken to provide more information about these cooperative efforts. The mapping project aimed to identify the major types, purposes, and strategies of school-community initiatives and explore the dynamics of implementing, sustaining, and expanding these initiatives. Information was drawn from a national cross-section of 20 school-community initiatives based on surveys, interviews, and group conversations. These results represent a snapshot of school-community initiatives. The report contains recommendations for establishing school-community initiatives and profiles of the 20 programs. (SLD)
