This report is a summary of a six-week internship in the Albion Public Schools during the summer of 1984.

The objective of this internship was to introduce the intern to the roles, responsibilities, and duties of the position of Assistant Superintendent and to provide for a general understanding of the operations of the central office administration.

The six-week experience included extensive opportunities to observe and participate in a variety of valuable activities. A considerable amount of time was spent in the development of a new professional staff evaluation and goal-setting system, interviewing and hiring new teaching staff, completing Title I reports, and gathering information for negotiations with bus drivers and cafeteria personnel.

The internship included numerous opportunities to "shadow" the administrative staff in its day-to-day activities thus assuring a truly unique learning experience.
