TLED 795 - Building Collaborative Community Partnerships


3 hours
Schools and their leaders cannot create effective and lasting change without the support of the community.  It is imperative that all levels of leadership in the school build collaborative relations with all of the constituents of the school community.  The teacher leadership candidates examine the theory, research, and best practices relating to school, family, and community partnerships.  This course also explores the different types of partnerships, challenges to developing school-based partnership programs, the components of effective partnership programs that enhance student performance and success, and how to evaluate their effectiveness to achieve the over-arching goal of school improvement.  This course includes a 10-hour practicum experience during which theory is applied to practice.  Candidates must complete their practicum requirements in schools with a diverse population.
