This course provides a thorough examination of the school and its interaction with the community. Consideration will be given to internal and external "communities" and the relationships between and among the communities of the school as an organization. Role of communications in school-community relations and consideration of the balance of rights and responsibilities between schools and communities will also be addressed. Students will be required to conduct a needs assessment, establish a conflict resolution program and a crisis intervention plan, and demonstrate an understanding of public relations, communication, and evaluation of school-community relations.
