School–College Partnerships: Why They Are Important to College and Career Readiness and to the Challenge

This chapter explores the role that college partnerships should have in the development of a successful program and how counselors can develop these relationships to further foster the impact of this curriculum on student success. Specifically, this chapter describes the development of a professional partnership between an urban 6-12 school and a School of Education at a local college with a particular emphasis on the ability of each partner to provide meaningful input into developing plans. Ideas on how to develop and foster such a partnership, including a section on mutual grant proposal writing and the development of a college student outreach program, are included.
