A step-by-step practitioner's guide to integrating health, community services, and academic achievement!

The first, experimental "full-service schools" have evolved into highly successful full-service community schools and this new book from the nationally recognized leader in community schools is a detailed and eminently practical description of how the various pieces-health services, academics, and community programs-can be put together to change the whole climate of the school.

Inside Full-Service Community Schools combines the on-site knowledge of school principal Sue Maguire, who has created a model full-service community school, with the deep experience and understanding of research-advocate Joy Dryfoos, who has tracked the development of these school transformation models across the country. The result is a highly practical, real-world guide with a unique local--national perspective. Topics include:

  • Getting started
  • Providing a range of services
  • Staffing: what works and what doesn't
  • Collaborating with the government and private sector
  • Involving parents
  • Overcoming barriers
  • Funding
  • Sustaining the school

In this groundbreaking work, experts Dryfoos and Maguire share both personal and comparative models, examining the full spectrum of community schools in urban, suburban, and rural settings. The book is ideal for reformers, administrators, and anyone interested in the future of education in America.
