An Analysis of Teacher Aide Administrative Practices in Kansas Public Schools, 1978-79.
Creamer, Robert C.
Responses to a questionnaire sent to all Kansas public school districts with enrollments of 500 and over revealed several characteristics of teacher aide utilization in the state. Such utilization is increasing, especially among larger districts where paid aides predominated over volunteers. In most districts all aides were paid, usually by the hour; the principal administered the teacher aide program; and teacher aides served primarily in instructional roles. Established personnel policies and practices for teacher aides tended to be lacking. This document presents data on recruitment, selection, and induction practices; training programs; probation, promotion, and discipline of teacher aides; record-keeping policies; wage and salary administration; and insurance, sick leave, and vacation benefits available. The data gathered in the study are presented in 55 tables, and the questionnaire used is included. (Author/PGD)
