Quinn, Vice President, Business Development, St. Leo University Building collaborative partnerships has become essential for both Universities and Public School Systems. Changing from isolated systems to highly connected systems is the focus of this timely book. The authors illustrate numerous ways partnerships develop and the important benefits of connectedness. -- David Scanga, Area Superintendent, Pasco County Schools As leaders in education grow and become more confident in their abilities to lead schools, staff and students, they cannot do it alone. Effective community, business and university partnerships are essential in helping to shape a leader's vision and mission. School districts across the U.S. are increasingly learning lessons from business and researchers about what must be accomplished to prepare our students for college and career readiness and this book gives us many great examples of what is happening in the field; and, we should listen to their stories. -- Mary Ann P. Jobe, AASA, The School Superintendents Association The authors who contributed to this book, based on their expertise, try to envision how collaborative partnerships can truly cultivate a school community of success, as well as creating future school administrators who have the skill sets needed to be effective with the currents demands of school building leaders. -- Alberto Vazquez, Chief of Staff, Hillsborough County Public Schools The book is a useful tool for all educators. It's both scholarly and user-friendly. Dr. Aefsky and her team have done an outstanding job! -- David Weintraub, Nova Southeastern University
