Crucial Conditions for Successful School-Family-Community Partnerships

Crucial Conditions for Successful S-F-C Partnerships describes the theoretical bases for successful partnership initiatives. It was authored by Rollande Deslandes, a research scholar at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières.

Even though the Directory and Crucial Conditions are presented alongside each other, they are to be taken as two distinct entities. The inclusion of a project in the Directory does not necessarily mean that the project contains the essential conditions referred to in the Crucial Conditions document or that the initiatives covered should be considered as templates for implementation of these conditions. Since these conditions hinge to a certain extent on the attitude of the stakeholders and the atmosphere that prevails, each community would have to be observed for an accurate assessment of whether these conditions exist. Be that as it may, we believe that both tools are very useful and inspiring in establishing S-F-C partnership projects.
