Extractions: January 1998 When Lynn Townsend's daughter was a sophomore at South Laurel High School in London, Ky., she couldn't get into the Latin class she needed to continue her studies from the previous year. Townsend went to the school's open house to learn how to remedy the situation. By the time she left, Townsend had joined the school's committee on restructuring time, which was charged with finding a way to improve teaching and learning at the school. "I chose the busiest committee in the history of the school," Townsend jokes, explaining that its membersparents, students, community members, and educatorslooked at different time restructuring models, visited schools, and listened to speakers explain their options. The committee eventually recommended, and the school council adopted, a four-block school day. Beyond Fundraising and Baking Cookies Under the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA), most schools in the state are required to have a councilmade up of two parents, three teachers, and the principalto make decisions to improve student learning. Councils determine the curriculum, assign students to classes, determine how time is structured, allocate use of school space, and make decisions about instructional practices, discipline and classroom management, and extracurricular programs. Most schools also have committees, which include parents such as Townsend, to investigate topicsincluding the school budget and curriculum and instruction issuesand inform the council.

Extractions: RECEIVE EMAIL UPDATES: SEARCH PTO TODAY: By Tim Sullivan It was perhaps the loudest reaction on the first day of the 2000 national PTA convention in Chicago. Illinois Superintendent of Schools Dr. Glenn McGee remembered a day earlier in his career when he made the mistake of referring to parent groups as PTOs. Almost on cue, the crowd of 1,500 or so PTAers roared their disapproval. Loud boos echoed through the cavernous meeting hall. He may as well have said that he hated the Cubs, the White Sox, the Bulls, and the Bears. Why the strong emotions? Are PTOs hurting kids or doing something wrong? While no PTA defenders go that far, there is a subtle but undeniable implication that those groups that arent part of the PTA are in some way choosing to abandon the cause of children. For some groups, the PTO vs. PTA debate is simply a matter of dollars and cents (either we dont want to send any money out of our school or are we getting enough service for the money we send out of our school?). For others, though, the debate takes on a significantly increased importance. If we dont speak for all children, then who will? the PTAs most loyal defenders often ask. Independence vs. Affiliation

Extractions: The technical differences between a PTA and a PTO are fairly simple. The national PTA is a formal membership organization headquartered in Chicago with a 103-year history of working for children. Local groups that choose to belong to the PTA must pay dues to the state and national organization and abide by state and national group rules. In return they get member benefits, and they get a voice in the operations of the larger organization. PTA groups also have a political voice, as the national PTA maintains a Washington lobbying office and most state PTAs advocate at their respective state capitals. The PTA protects its name, so thatin theoryonly dues-paying members of the group can call themselves "PTA." "PTO," on the other hand, is a more generic term. It generally represents the thousands of groups that choose to remain independent of the PTA. The acronym PTO is the most popular name, but other common monikers include PCC, PTG, and HSA. These are most often single-school groups that operate under their own by-laws andby and largeconcern themselves with the goings-on at their school, or in their town only. For years, the debate has been exceedingly simple to frame. Do we want to be part of something larger and spend our group dollars outside of our school? Or do we want to focus exclusively on our school where our kids are? Since the PTA was (and still is) the only formal national school parent group, the decision has often been PTA or not-PTA.

Extractions: CHAPTER NINE RESOURCES Finding the resources to finance, maintain, and upgrade equipment, and to provide teacher training and technical support is universally one of the biggest hurdles that schools face when it comes to technology implementation. For many, the funds are simply unavailable via the conventional means of local tax-based school financing. Despite this fact, we found schools and districts in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the nation that have somehow managed to establish exemplary technology programs. How did they do it? In a word, they did everything . While we collected questionnaire information on a number of typical sources of funds (see below), schools provided literally dozens of interesting examples of how to approach fundraising. Some fostered and rewarded grantsmanship among their faculty; others developed alliances with community groups; and still others were able to steer traditional educational funding vehicles into more direct support of technology. Many schools identified non-monetary in-kind resources such as volunteers, bartering relationships, and corporate contributions of hardware and software. The best schools (from a resource acquisition perspective) had fairly elaborate strategies and tactics that combined all of these elements. One of the areas we focused particular attention on was how schools make effective use of Federal or state technology grant programs. This is an area where there is much opportunity for creative and effective public policy, as well as for some dreadful mistakes.

Extractions: Chapter 9 - Resources Finding the resources to finance, maintain, and upgrade equipment, and to provide teacher training and technical support is universally one of the biggest hurdles that schools face when it comes to technology implementation. For many, the funds are simply unavailable via the conventional means of local tax-based school financing. Despite this fact, we found schools and districts in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the nation that have somehow managed to establish exemplary technology programs. How did they do it? As an additional component of this chapter, we provide some information on the use of various information resources available through the Federal government. Not only is money essential for acquiring technology but so is good information about the availability of Federal programs and information sources. Questionnaire Data: Awareness, Use and Helpfulness of Resources In this area, we identified a list of nine very general approaches to expanding the resource base available to schools involved in implementing technology. It included various sources of resources (e.g., private versus public), various types of resources (e.g., money versus in-kind), and different types of relationships with the resource providers.
