In March 1976 the Milwaukee Board of School Directors adopted an Affirmative Action Policy Statement for the school system. The statement lists goals designed to achieve a school staffing pattern which is reflective of the Milwaukee community. This report by the Metropolitan Integration Research Center examines the current employment profile of the central administration of the Milwaukee Public Schools to determine what progress has been made in changing minority staffing patterns among administrative staff. Within the MPS administration at central office there are 577 staff, reporting either to the Superintendent or the Secretary-Business Manager. An analysis of staffing patterns in summer of 1980 revealed that only 63 of the 405 central administrative staff under the Office of the Superintendent were minorities.
