Describes the inservice training programs in six mid-western school districts. The districts range in student population from 6,000 to 44,000 and initially desegregated between 1970 and 1978. A team of interviewers visited each of the districts and interviewed approximately 40 administrators, inservice trainers, and training program participants. A case study was prepared for each district providing a brief description of the locality and desegregation plan as a context within which the inservice training programs operate, an overview of the district's major inservice programs, an account of the inservice planning procedures, and a discussion of the impact and/or outcomes of the inservice programs as determined through field interviews and the impressions of the field study team. The case studies constitute one part of the data collected during the site visits. Additional data gathered from the interviews will permit further analysis of specific training programs and the responses of trainers and participants to these programs. A final report for the study will incorporate data from the case studies and from the detailed interview responses.
