Manual for Utilization of Auxiliary Personnel.
Lang, Theodore H.; And Others
This policy manual containing guidelines, standards, and procedures was prepared to explain the Auxiliary Career Program in New York City schools to all those concerned with it. Introductory sections sketch the background and rationale for the program initiated in 1967 by the Board of Education, the City University, and the Human Resources Administration to employ low income neighborhood residents as auxiliary (paraprofessional) school personnel in a career-oriented work-study program. The major section of the manual outlines the training program for paraprofessionals (for kindergarten and grades 1 and 2) which is designed and coordinated by a central staff and carried out by district training teams. Included is the curriculum outline for the initial 2-week orientation, the monthly (for 3 years) inservice training sessions, and the weekly team training of the classroom teacher with the paraprofessional. Policy and procedure is outlined for selection of district training teams (a trainer-coordinator who is an experienced classroom teacher and an auxiliary trainer who is a skilled paraprofessional) and for selection of paraprofessionals. Also included is a description of the career ladder (progression from teacher aide to educational assistant to educational associate to assistant teacher to teacher); qualifications and job description for each paraprofessional and trainer; and evaluation questionnaires for use by principals and teachers.
