EDUC 733 - Collaboration with the School Community

3 hours
Schools as social systems with various partners such as parents, community leaders (political and non-political), law enforcement, social service agencies, businesses and higher education institutions are examined. The roles of these partners are discussed, along with their effect on the public’s confidence in the school systems. Providing public forums; methods of assessment to solicit community concerns, expectations, input and feedback; and public relations strategies that can be used to further the planning and implementation of school community programs are among topics covered. Using research, practices found effective in involving the community as a resource for successful school improvement implementation are examined. Emphasis is placed on the development of a school community that collaboratively educates all children. GR
