From Service Provider to Partnership: A Manual for Planning, Developing, and Implementing Collaborations with the New York City Public Schools.
This guide is designed to help art education providers develop sustained arts education partnerships in the New York City schools. Although the manual is written primarily for cultural and community organizations, it contains much useful information for school-based educators. In contrast to a service provider model, a partnership model requires greater commitment from the organization, with a sharing of responsibilities. Each manual chapter describes a successive stage in partnership planning and implementation. Following the introduction in chapter 1, chapter 2 describes the initial conceptualization of what a community or cultural organization can bring to a partnership. Chapter 3 identifies key components of initial planning, and chapter 4 describes more formal partnership planning. Partnership implementation and strategies for sustaining the partnership are covered in chapter 5. (SLD)
