Partnerships by Design: Cultivating Effective and Meaningful School-Family-Community Partnerships. Creating Communities of Learning & Excellence.
Ellis, Debbie; Hughes, Kendra
This workbook was written to complement the training manual "Planning for Youth Success" (Dorfman and others, 2001). That manual outlines how family and community members can work with school staff and students to set standards for student success. This workbook lays a foundation for building partnerships to help facilitate that process. It is based on the assumption that many educators have sought ways to actively involve families but have not gotten the results they desired. Its purpose is to help educators build more effective and meaningful school-family-community partnerships within their schools, programs, or classrooms. It is designed to be a practical tool for facilitating the planning process, specifically to assist partnership-development teams in creating school or program partnership plans. The workbook can also be used as a self-directed study guide. It contains sample forms, sample plans, worksheets, checklists, and activities. It also contains "ideas for action," which are hints, tips, and practical suggestions for putting plans into action. (Contains 22 references.) (WFA)
