Problems Incident to Urban School Desegregation: An Institute for School Administrators of the Buffalo and Niagara Falls Public Schools. Interim Report Draft.
McKelvey, Troy V.
An Institute funded under Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act was held during 1968-69 in order to concentrate on the attitudes of the administrative leadership of the schools involved in a busing program. The purpose of the Institute was to initiate and evaluate action programs to facilitate the implementation of the School System's desegregation policies. It was planned around the perceived needs of the administrative staff of the participating school districts. The two problem areas most frequently identified by participants were: (1) school-community relations and (2) teachers and staffing. The Institute was divided into three parts: the first was a comprehensive two-week workshop for 20 participants in the summer of 1968; the second was a comprehensive four-day workshop held in November, 1968 that was designed to familiarize new participants with the experiences of the summer workshop; and, the third consisted of monthly workshops designed to build upon the ideas of the comprehensive workshops and to move toward a working plan for each school.
