This internship investigated differentiated staffing programs in the Calgary-Separate School District #1. The review of the literature revealed that these programs are comprised of several component parts. Of prime importance is the differentiation of professional and non-professional assignments in the field of teaching. Other relevant areas include the financing of such programs. The intern, in the role of participant observer, investigated the elements of differentiated staffing with the literature review as a theoretical framework. Methods used included observation, informal interviews and discussions, and study of selected materials provided by the schools visited. -- The data gathered was not of the empirical type and hence conclusions drawn are subjective and impressionistic in nature. The intern found that differentiated staffing programs in Calgary, while similar to models in the theoretical framework, do differ in a major area, in that the "career ladder" concept, and accompanying differentiation of salary schedules are non-existant. Further, the intern concluded that differentiated staffing cannot be viewed in a vacuum, but must be treated as an integral part of the whole process of individualization of instruction.
