The internship in Supervision and Curriculum Development provided the intern the opportunity to develop and strengthen leadership skills required for educational administrators for the 21st century.

The internship focused on the following projects: 1) the development of a balanced curriculum for the district's bilingual summer enrichment program, 2) the facilitation of a collegial sharing of ideas learned at out-of-district workshops, 3) the piloting of a teacher-centered revision of the district's evaluation system, 4) a teacher-led workshop to encourage the use of CD-ROM technology as an instructional tool and 5) the implementation of cross-age tutoring.

The following recommendations were made: 1) further grade level specification for the summer enrichment program curriculum, 2) linking of collegial staff development to the supervision and evaluation process, 3) a full-scale revision of the district's evaluation system, 4) periodic teacher-led technology workshops, and 5) implementation of cross-age tutoring in the bilingual classes during the regular school year.
