Written by former teacher, principal, and college professor Douglas J. Fiore, School-Community Relations is now in an updated second edition. School-Community Relations offers the basic building blocks of a successful school-community relations plan, from how to read the pulse of the community to improving media relations, taking advantage of the electronic era of communication, making plans to cope with crisis situations, and much more. A practical-minded guide based heavily on experience, School-Community Relations is one text no high-ranking school administrator should be without.

This book was required reading for my master's program. Fiore adds humor to what could have been a very droll read.
