Detroit Public Schools Emergency School Aid Act Special Projects Application.
Detroit Public Schools, MI. Office of Federal, State, and Special Projects.
In 1979 the United States District Court ordered the Detroit Public Schools to transfer its teachers in such a way that each school in the system would have a faculty comprised of not more than 60% of one race. In order to effect this balance, the district had to involuntarily transfer 472 teachers. This application for Emergency School Aid Act funds introduces the staff desegregation component of the city's desegregation plan, details the concerns of school staff, students, and parents, and presents the activities undertaken to effect desegregation. Interviews and questionnaires were used to determine the existence of problems with respect to involuntary transfers of staff. The concerns articulated by respondents suggested activities that had to be performed to ensure quality in the delivery of educational services to students. Objectives (with completion deadlines) were developed and are presented in chart form with the activities designed to meet each objective and the techniques used to evaluate each activity. (MK)
