â€¢ School Community ProfileWeek 8: School Community ProfileAssignment InstructionsSchool Community Profile”It helps to know the rules of the game before you play the game; and it helps to know the rules before you try to change them to your advantage. Either way, a keen understanding of the industry is the starting point for any school district.” (A.S. Michaels, 2007)Each of you has entered into a unique educational program here. In order to fully understand and appreciate the nature of your district’s school-community relationship, you are to create a School-Community Profile that you will build on you throughout your courses here. In addition, much of your program relies on observation and hands-on training in the school environment. The primary goal of this project for this beginning class is to develop a rapport with your learning community.The School Community Profile is due week 8 to the instructor.
