SALLES, Leila Maria Ferreira; SILVA, Joyce Mary Adam de Paula e; FONSECA, Debora Cristina  and  MELO, Luciano Plez de. School managers and integration of schools in the community. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2015, vol.38, n.1, pp.113-123. ISSN 1981-2582.

This study aims to understand the ways of insertion of two schools located on the outskirts in their community, by testimony of its managers. The aim is to investigate the perceptions of these communities by school managers, and to reveal how far or how close from its vicinity the school is. The responses of school managers were grouped into two thematic clusters as referred to the community or the relationship between school and community. The study indicated that the peripheral community is predominantly perceived as a problematic community. This dominant representation contributes to the relationship between the school and the community be marked by conflicts and divergences.

Keywords : School Managers; School; Community.
