Structure and Organization of Administrative Internships: Components of a Successful Program.
Veir, Carole A.
Components of a successful internship program are described in this report, with a focus on internships in middle management. Included are descriptions of program characteristics, pre-internship experiences, pre-internship options, knowledge prerequisites, seminars, funding and district cooperation, student and site matching, placement options, the relationship between internship and job placement success, and an assessment of interns and followup studies. A preliminary conclusion, pending further data analysis, is that the program is successful. Improvements underway include the addition of an orientation seminar and courses in school law and finance, revision of followup questionnaires and the intern handbook, and placement of interns into paid positions. The responsibility for program success is viewed as a product of cooperation among the university, student, site supervisor, and district/agency. (10 references) (LMI)
