Meeting the Challenge of Problems in Education Through a Cooperative Approach.
Chadron State Coll., NE.
To more effectively train teachers, administrators, and other school personnel enrolled in the education program at Chadron State College, Nebraska, and to improve the educational opportunities for the students of nearby Crawford School System, the College contracted for the educational management of the school system for the 1968-69 year. Two administrator interns worked with the chairman of the Division of Education of the College, who also served as the superintendent of schools, in the planning and daily administration of the system. The trainees, who served as secondary school principal and administrative assistant to the superintendent, were involved in such duties as selecting instructional staff, budget development, scheduling, planning and conducting a preschool inservice workshop, conducting meetings with community leaders, and developing job descriptions. Other activities are also part of the cooperative project (1) college staff members conduct inservice workshops for elementary and secondary faculty members and work directly with classroom teachers and pupils, (2) undergraduate students in elementary education serve as parttime aides in elementary classrooms, and (3) students enrolled in graduate courses obtain experience in the school system. (Included is background information on the city of Crawford and the school district; publicity releases; and notes on project development, personnel, budget, and evaluation. SP 002 254 is a related document.) (JS)
