ELAD 690: School and Community Relations
In this course, students examine the political, social, and economic factors which influence the school's relationship with various community agencies and constituencies. They also develop administrative sensitivity to the various communities. As parts of the process, students develop skills in group dynamics they need to work with faculty and staff, build a school community where attention to social justice, equity, and student achievement is the norm, facilitate change and conflict resolution; communicate with parents and community; and involve stakeholders in developing school-wide improvement plans.
