In April and May of 1975, the Research and Evaluation Department of the Minneapolis Public Schools conducted a needs assessment at the request of the Leadership Development Committee (LDC) to determine what kind of help MPS administrators need to do their jobs better. Two methods were used to collect data. First, a one-page questionnaire was sent to all MPS administrators. Second, a 15% random sample of administrators from elementary, secondary, central office, and special locations was selected to be interviewed. The most frequent requests for training were in the areas of management techniques, interpersonal relations and personnel management, administration, and curriculum theory and development. About two-thirds of the questionnaire respondents said that they would probably or definitely participate in courses in 1975-76 if they were offered at convenient times. About four out of ten questionnaire respondents said that ample opportunity exists to meet their professional growth needs. Over one-third said more opportunity for obtaining professional growth units through the MPS or obtaining college or university credit is needed. Secondary administrators more frequently indicated these needs and, in addition, were more likely to say they needed assistance in pursuing an advanced degree. Over two-thirds of the interviewees said they thought the LDC could provide them with the kind of training they really need. (Author/RC)
