Jacobsen, D. Michele; Gladstone, Brenda
This report describes the school-business partnerships that have contributed to the success of the Galileo Center at Banded Peak School in Bragg Creek, Alberta, in its first full year of operation. It summarizes partnership activities and initiatives that have been implemented in the school and suggests directions for future linkages. The need for joint evaluation of the outcomes of an educational partnership are discussed, as well as ways in which educators and stakeholders can work together for the assessment of partnerships. The Galileo Center stresses the advancement of teaching practices by providing a working professional development school as a site for educational innovation, research, and technology. The center works to improve student learning and cultivate excellence in teaching by: (1) establishing a safe, caring community of inquiry; (2) encouraging teachers to develop innovative practices, share expertise, and collaborate with others; (3) conducting research and applying research; and (4) by fully realizing the leverage of technology on education.
