Abstract

The proposed procedure for an elementary school teacher to gain entry level experience, skills, and knowledge required to assume a summer migrant program assistant directorship was to examine the scope of duties of a summer migrant program assistant director and to acquire knowledge, skills, and experience by assisting a summer migrant program assistant director as he performed his daily responsibilities.

The experience focused on all procedures necessary to establish a summer migrant program. This focus included: goals of the program, staffing, interpersonal relationships, disciplining, community and peripheral organization relationships and administrative leadership styles.

The experience provided on-the-job awareness of the assistant director's job. Through active participation in the duties of assistant director entry level experience, skills, and knowledge were gained which prepare a teacher to assume the duties of a summer migrant program assistant director.
