The Ann Arbor Public Schools Participative Model In-Service Staff Development Project. Terminal Report.
Reilly, Anthony J.; And Others
This project became operational in April 1969 and was planned to have two phases operating at least until January 1971. The first phase, an administrative workshop combined with the collection and feedback of data, was completed in December 1969. With the support of supplementary funding after the original funding was curtailed, the second phase involved change seminars and the development of change projects. The project's long run impact cannot be effectively assessed unless follow-up studies are conducted in the near future. The objectives of the project were 1) to develop and strengthen the interdependence of members of the school's staff; 2) to develop a collaborative process of working on the problems facing individual schools; 3) to develop a continuing personal and team commitment to growth and organizational development; and 4) to develop the necessary skills within the school team to be able to carry on the process of organizational renewal. The document gives details of the planning, resources, participants and staff, administrative workshops, change seminar, and change-team activities, followed by a summary and conclusions. Extensive appendixes document the three workshops and seminar, and include the various instruments employed and the questionnaires used for evaluation. [This supersedes ED 046 879.] (MBM)
