Bryan, Julia; Holcomb-McCoy, Cheryl
Professional School Counseling, v7 n3 p162 Feb 2004
This study investigated school counselors' perceptions about their involvement in nine school-family-community (SFC) partnership programs and barriers to their involvement in such partnerships. A random sample of 72 school counselors in South Carolina public schools were asked to rate the importance and degree of their involvement related to nine SFC partnerships. The study revealed that the participants perceived their involvement in SFC partnerships as very important and significant relationships were round between school counselors' perceptions of importance of their involvement in partnerships and barriers to that involvement. Counselors varied in some of their perceptions and practices in the nine partnership programs by school level (i.e., elementary, middle, high school).
