Paraprofessionals at Clearwater Campus.
Jones, Milton O.
The use of paraprofessionals to fulfill the program planning functions of the college counseling office has proven effective at St. Petersburg Junior College (Clearwater Campus), Florida. Ideally, these paraprofessionals should be mature adults, have some college experience, and report to the same supervisor as do the counselors. They perform such clerical and administrative tasks as programming courses, scheduling students in classes, and assisting in the registration process. This allows the counseling staff more time for on-going developmental counseling. Experience to date has shown that counselors have been able to spend more time counseling students with difficulties and that the paraprofessional is more efficient than the faculty adviser in providing up-to-date program information.
