Community and Interagency Contexts
By Emily McCowan
Friend and Cook in "Interactions" tell us that it is widely known that schools that have family and community involvement have outcomes with students that are highly positive compared to schools without the involvement.
Community Outreach
According to "Interactions" by Friend and Cook when schools make a concerted effort to create positive community relationships they often hire a community liaison to be the link and go-between. They have three major roles that they play that are listed below.
Community Liaisons
There are ten key strategies for effective partnership listed in "Interactions" by Friend and Cook. Each of these strategies outline an idea that has the potential to bridge gaps and build stronger partnerships. All ten are listed below.
Strategies for Effective Partnerships
In "Interactions" by Friend and Cook we are given much think about regarding interagency collaboration and how agencies work together when a family is receiving services from more than one and how to best benefit the family. It is "through viable interagency collaboration using combined expertise, services provided by different systems can be maximized, problems in services minimized, and costs reduced" (2013, p 299). This is just one part of improving services and reducing the burdens, stress, and worry of families.
