The Assistant Principal's Internship Program (APIP) is one of several programs designed to increase the number of minorities and women in administrative and supervisory positions in the New York City school system. APIP graduates complete 21 credits of tuition-reimbursed coursework at the City College of New York and a semester-long full-time internship at host schools in participating community school districts to be eligible for state certification in school administration. Twenty-two of the program's 60 graduates from 1991-92 completed a survey about their program experiences. Eighty-two percent of respondents were certified in school administration and supervision, and these graduates had received 17 principal and 19 assistant principal licenses. Two graduates, both female, one African American and one White, were employed in administrative and supervisory positions requiring certification. Six respondents (four Whites, three African Americans, and one Hispanic American) worked in an out-of-the-classroom supervisory position. Although only a few respondents obtained administrative or supervisory positions requiring certification, all respondents had favorable opinions about the program and rated its coursework and experiences highly. Three tables present survey findings. An appendix describes the certification process. (SLD)
