Administrator Inservice: Designing, Developing, and Delivering a Unique Institution of Higher Education (IHE), Local Education Agency (LEA), Partnership Program.
Bench, Varnell A.
This document describes a partnership program for administrator training that the Davis (Utah) School District has established with the College of Education at Utah State University. This program was initiated because of the district's anticipated need for a large number of new administrators, coupled with the availability of numerous top teachers for administrative training and the preference of the district for administrators who are attuned to the local culture and district philosophy. It also served the needs of the university for greater exposure to public school systems, and it provided them with an effective way to revise their curriculum. In developing the model for the program, the first step was to review the administrative/supervisory curriculum in order to determine which courses should be strictly preservice and which could be either preservice or inservice courses. The latter courses were completely revised by teams consisting of university and school district personnel, so that they could be delivered in discrete modules to working staff. Admission requirements and program costs are discussed, and tables are interspersed throughout the text to illustrate the structure of the preservice and inservice curricula. (TE)
