Magnuson, Yngve P.; Rickenberger, Donald
This report describes the Minneapolis Auxiliary Personnel Program, 1971-72, which is designed to provide better educational assistance and services to eligible, educationally disadvantaged students. Following a brief description of the city of Minneapolis and its schools, the report describes the students who are eligible for the program--students who are one or more years below grade level in the basic skills, or those who will be unless they receive additional aid. The staff responsible for the planning, development, and implementation of the program are listed as a) a full-time administrator, b) three half-time coordinators, and c) a clerk typist. The report then lists the training services for the aides: a) courses at the University of Minnesota and Metropolitan State Junior Colleges, b) off-campus courses in Model Cities and Pilot City neighborhoods and community centers, and c) in-service instruction and adult basic education classes. Budgetary considerations and recommendations for future programs are included. (BRB)
