This skills packet is part of the North Carolina Helping Education in Low-Performing Schools effort. This initiative helps educators establish ties with technical-assistance partners who can facilitate school-improvement efforts. The skills packet, which was designed to be delivered by a skilled trainer, focuses on partnerships in education. It offers a working definition of partnership in local schools and school systems; describes the process for developing, implementing, and sustaining effective school-based partnerships; and provides information that educators can use in the partnership process. The nine activities are divided into four sections: (1) rationale for partnerships; (2) leadership and commitment assessment; (3) development; and (4) implementation, continuous improvement, and sustainability. Each activity is formatted the same way. Following the activity number and name, a chart details the time needed to carry out the activity, the purpose of the activity, the setting for the activity, and the materials and equipment needed for the activity. The activities are geared primarily for small groups and require a high degree of participation. Following each activity is a synopsis of the intended results of the training. It is hoped that participants will learn the intricacies of partnerships and how alliances can best be used for school improvement. (RJM)
