The University of Arizona Duo-Specialist Project is designed to aid the small community in meeting its needs for specialists in such areas as guidance, reading, library, and education for the handicapped. The district and the University jointly select from among the present faculty in the communities' schools persons to receive training for a particular specialist position. Teacher-trainees attend the University for a full academic year and one summer at their current salary. The University selects intern teachers with the cooperation of the local administrator to replace trainees in their respective schools. They receive special training during the summer session prior to their work and during their intern year. In the first four years of the project 41 duo-specialists have been trained and have returned to 38 schools to perform 72 special services not available before; 40 interns have been certified, with placement ranging through 10 Western states and 30 percent of them accepting positions in the school district of their internship. The program has been considered successful, its main effects being specialized services not available to thousands of children in remote and isolated small school districts of Arizona; contribution to alleviation of the teacher-recruitment problem in these areas; establishment of university-school district rapport that has stimulated continued professional growth; and demonstration of the practical results of such innovative, cooperative endeavors.
