Public relations in school administration

Unknown Date (has links)
Trends during the past few years have indicated that citizens have come to rely on school leaders and workers for professional guidance and educational leadership. School personnel are learning that they must draw upon community resources in order to improve the learning experience of children. A good public relations program can be of great importance to the school as it attempts to meet the varying and changing needs of children and the community. A well planned public relations program will enable the school to interpret the conditions, needs, educational philosophy, policies, and program of the school to the parents and lay citizens of the community. Such a program will give parents and citizens an opportunity to gain a basic understanding of the work that the school has planned, and give them an opportunity to share in the development of many school activities. However, school public relations is not merely a job of keeping the public informed about all phases or activities of the school; it is also the job of the public relations officials to interpret the news of the home and community to the school. Education is conceived as a cooperative process between all agencies concerned with growth and development of the child. The writer of this paper is attempting to set forth certain basic ideas that will bring about harmonious relationships between the home-school-community. / Typescript. / "June, 1950." / "Submitted to the Graduate Council of Florida State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts under Plan II." / Advisor: Harris W.

Developing a public relations program in Jackson County

Unknown Date (has links)
"Educators are now realizing more keenly than ever that the schools need a large measure of goodwill, particularly of the kind of good will that results from an intelligent understanding among citizens of the aims, the scope, the achievements, and the present problems of their school systems. There is a growing conviction that those school systems which are progressing in the development of a better school program are the ones which have an effective program of Public Relations through which they can communicate to the public their aims, goals, and achievements, and through which the public can communicate to them its needs, its problems, and its aspirations. The writer is convinced that the development of a better educational program in her school system waits upon the development of such program of Public Relations. Therefore, this study has ben undertaken for the purpose of developing a program of activities that may reasonable be expected to function effectively as a Public Relations program in Jackson County"--Introduction. / "March, 1950." / Typescript. / "Submitted to the Graduate Council of Florida State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts under Plan II." / Advisor: H.

A process plan for the improvement of school-community relations

Heier, Jeffrey L. 03 June 2011 (has links)
The purpose of the study was to: (1) identify components of school-community relations that involve administrative functions, public participation and political processes; (2) develop a practical process for improvement of school-community relations; and (3) offer strategies for implementing a positive school-community relations process.Review of literature identified three concepts of school-community relations: (1) development of school-community relations; (2) perspectives of school-community relations; and (3) approaches to the improvement of school-community relations. The three concepts were researched regarding the administrative functions, public participation, and political processes. The concepts were utilized to identify components and theoretical models to formulate a practical process plan for improvement of school-community relations.The Process Plan utilized the administrative, public participation and political dimensions as a basis for developing procedures for improvement of school-community relations. The Process Plan format consisted of six sequential processes: (1) initial planning, (2) statement of purpose and reassessment of mission, (3) assessment of community needs and desires, (4) decision-making strategies, (5) developing implementation strategies, and (6) evaluation and audit processes.Assessment of the Process Plan was conducted through utilization of a review panel selected from nationally recognized authorities in school-community relations. The review panel consisted of five individuals willing to critically review the Process Plan and respond to an openended evaluation instrument. The responses from the review panel were organized into component categories consistent with the structure of the Process Plan and utilized to evaluate the model as a viable resource for public school administrators.A comparison of item-by-item response did not yield lack of concurrence of respondents strong enough to warrant major revision of the Process Plan. A general observation was that experience with implementation would readily identify weaknesses. Responses by the review panel indicated that the more significant components of the Process Plan were: the organization, sequential progression, and goals which provided direction for many school-community areas; the administrative responsibilities and accountability component provided clear lines of reporting; and considerable degree of benefit could transpire when the community was involved.Several modifications to the Process Plan were generated by conducting the study. In addition to vital as the modifications generated by analysis of responses by the review panel several modifications resulted from experiences of conducting the research coupled with doctoral committee member interaction.Based upon the findings of the study the following conclusions were drawn:1. The school-community relations concept encompasses a wide range of components, such as administrative function, public participation, and political processes.2. School administrators generally have given low priority to school-community relations concepts.3. The Process Plan will assist school administrators in implementing a continuous schoolcommunity relations program.4. The Process Plan is one feasible alternative for improvement of school-community relations.5. The data provided will generate increased awareness of the value of positive school community relations on the part of individuals who choose to read the study.6. Procedures used by any school district or community in implementation are as steps identified in the Plan.

Analysis of perceived power dynamics in the passage or failure of operational levies in selected Ohio public school districts : implications for a role of the superintendent

Stuckman, Ralph Edward January 1969 (has links)
The purposes of this study were (1) to analyze the perceptions of identified community leaders concerning the power dynamics involved in referendums to increase the amount of operational tax funds through levy campaigns which were accepted or rejected in selected Ohio public school districts, and (2) to develop a conceptual role model for Ohio public school superintendents in these campaigns.After the review of related literature on community power, an interview guide was developed for the sample population which included six Ohio public school districts. The selected respondents were the superintendent and one official from each of the organizational areas of the news media, banking and finance, chamber of commerce and women. The six systems included the three Ohio school district types consisting of the city, exempted village and local. There were two school districts in each category which included a passing levy and a failing levy.The researcher formulated three hypotheses to analyze the field research. The following results were noted:1. Little support was found for hypothesis 1:A relationship exists between the active membership of the superintendent in community organizations and a successful operational levy.2. A positive relationship was evident inhypothesis 2: A relationship exists between the functional task-assignments of influential community citizens in the operational levy campaign and passaqe of an operational levy.3. Little support was found for hypothesis 3: The predictions of community influentials in an operational levy and the actual outcome of the operational levy are significantly related.Major findings were the need factor and citizen involvement. The selected population in passing and failing levies perceived that awareness of need was the significant reason for the outcome of the operational levy. Active participation of key community citizens was evident in passing levies while little active participation of influential citizens took place in failing levy campaigns.Other findings were in the areas of community relations, role of the superintendent and prior consultations. It was revealed that school-community relations may help, but not insure passage of a levy. School districts with failing levies received slightly higher public ratings than did theschool systems with passing levies.The superintendents in the passing levies remained in the background with organizational responsibilities. On the other hand, two of three superintendents with failing levies took leading promotional positions while the third had little or no involvement of any kind.A role of the superintendent was primarily viewed with the presentation of the need for additional revenue and secondly mentioned with the dissemination of information. The superintendent was designated by the sample population as the creator of the operational levy campaign.Selected citizens by a ratio of three to one agreed that prior consultation with influentials would help the passage of an operational levy. The selected superintendents were evenly divided on the issue.A conceptual role model of the superintendent in an operational levy campaign was presented with documentation from the related literature and field research. The major models were community behavior, community structure and community dynamics. The model role of the superintendent initially began with his perception of relationships in community dynamics.The citizen involvement model is the major concept affecting the outcome of an operational levy. The superintendent through his knowledge of the school and the community begins this involvement through a created plan of campaign strategy. The participation of citizens plus a role of the superintendent and community dynamics are the major forces which determine the outcome of a levy.

Financing schools through establishment of sound external relations

Khoetha, Lefau Nathaniel 06 February 2012 (has links)
M.Ed. / In this research project, attempts have been made to find ways and means to address the financial needs of Kathorus schools. The concept of financing schools through establishment of sound external relations has been discussed as one possible mechanism to give broad access to education opportunities. Such mechanisms will enable students to participate actively in their educational careers. Funding of schools through establishing of a sound external relation will not be successful if developed in a vacuum. Therefore, the process will require a new and intelligent approach to private sector with the development of new kinds of skills and knowledge. Reorientation courses for school principals should be pursued so that a paradigm shift can be achieyed in relation to a sound external relation aimed at financing of education. In conclusion, the following statements describe some of the principles discussed in this project document: • • Private sector should form an integral part of educational funding system . School governance should be 'in conjunction with the community (partnership) structures and stakeholders in the institutions, while conforming to the national policy framework.

The role of the elementary school principal in the public relations program

Unknown Date (has links)
"Recently, Schools of Education have been carrying on studies that will help one to clarify the scope of the leadership program and to justify what the position of the elementary principal is in the public relations program. Indications from many of these studies point to the fact that there must be integration between the thinking and doing, and that the major responsibility of the principal of today is to secure various supervisory techniques for providing these experiences. Integration between the teaching practices and sound principles of education is the responsibility of the principal in the over-all program, such integration involves the process of dealing with human beings. Therefore, this paper is concerned primarily with the duties and responsibilities of the principal in the planning, with the faculty, of a program that is appropriate for his own individual school and the needs of the community. Publicity may assist in enlisting a common understanding of the educational standards, leading to moral and financial support from the community, but the problem to stress is a successful, well-planned program for boys and girls. The need for this kind of a program is most important for improving status and promoting the advancement of the professions in relations with the public"--Introduction. / "January, 1956." / Typescript. / "Submitted to the Graduate Council of Florida State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science." / Advisor: Marian W.

Public relations in the elementary school

Unknown Date (has links)
"The principal considers the 'how' as important as the 'what'. Success in developing a school program in which understandings and improvements grow in the most desirable way is dependent on how it is done. How can the principal grow in leadership ability? How can the principal help teachers to become enthusiastic about their school programs? How can the principal help children to interpret their school to parents, friends, and laymen? How can the principal help parents and the general public realize their responsibility for a modern program of elementary education? These responsibilities and opportunities place demands upon the elementary school principal which he can rarely meet without systematic preparation for doing so. This preparation may be gained, at least in large part, by (a) growing in his own leadership ability, (b) by giving attention to principal-teacher relationships, (c) by giving attention to principal-pupil relationships, and (d) by the optimum utilization of people and common media of communication in the school community. This paper presents a study of the ways by which the principal can do each of these"--Introduction. / Typescript. / "February, 1951." / "Submitted to the Graduate Council of Florida State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts in Education." / Advisor: H.
