Whole Child Readiness
This article by Dr. Dan Rea and Dr. Cordelia Zinskie gives an excellent overview of a holistic approach (5HHF) to education. A good read for educators as well as community partners.
Partnership Planning Guide
Keep in mind that initial conversations occur among school and partner leaders with the authority to make decisions related to staffing, programming, funding, and policy—typically the equivalent of the CEO.
This guide will help you determine the partnership’s level of engagement and gain a broad, mutual understanding of the partnership’s scope—its goals and opportunities
as well as the potential risks and problems. Once those high-level issues are addressed, other individuals may be tasked with logistics and implementation. Consider this a starting point, expecting adjustments as the partnership develops.
