My administrative internship took place at Lafayette Jr/Sr High School under the supervision of the principal Paula Cowling. My internship started during the summer when I came in one day to clean my room and was asked to help schedule the AIS English classes for the year. I got my first taste of how difficult the master schedule is to complete. I did not return to the school until the Monday of our first week. On that day I ran into a surprise that the Jr. High principle had taken on. Earlier in the week a former student had a run in with the law and was going to turn himself into the police, but because he was a student with special needs and had no outside support, Jennifer took pity on him and helped him through the process. I was brought along both as a male presence in the car and to see some of the non-normal activities that an administrator goes through. I then spent the rest of the day working on the TA schedules to make sure the school had coverage for everything throughout the year.


ne of my major projects of the year was to be in charge of the mandatory 9 period that our school runs for students who are failing two or more classes. I began by creating a monitor schedule where I tried to keep at least one teacher from each subject are, one male and one female and one teacher who would lay down the law. I was also under the obligation to make sure that each teacher had 11 “duty periods� and that they were all together. So after a few drafts I had the 9 period schedule finished that went throughout the year. After the first 5 week period I had a group of students that needed to be assigned to 9 period. With the assistance of the office staff, we sent th

out letters to each student who had to attend. I then created a list for the faculty of all the students who were assigned to 9 period and sent out the instructions for keeping them after school if they wanted them for extra help. Most things ran smoothly with 9 period throughout the year except for attendance. The students that need 9 period tend to be those who don’t show up for school, let alone extra school. So I made many phone calls to parents with mixed results and gave a few students Saturday detention for multiple skips. I feel that the mandatory 9 period has been a success for many students who took it seriously, and just a punishment for those who did not. th
