Paraprofessional Training Project. Final Report.
Glovinsky, Arnold; Johns, Joseph P.
Twenty-three teams of trainers of paraprofessional school personnel from school districts in Wayne County were trained, each team composed of five persons representing four different levels: a central office administrator, a building principal, a teacher working or planning to work with paraprofessionals, and two paraprofessionals. The program provided 30 hours of training over a period of 10 weeks. A total of 110 participants were trained and 13 of the 23 teams themselves conducted district training programs. The overall objective of the program was to stimulate the development of new and more effective staffing practices by preparing paraprofessionals, assisting certificated personnel in making effective use of them, developing new career models, increasing the richness of the school environment, and improving communications between the school and the community. Training materials were developed and produced by the project staff and were available to the local teams. Details of this material are included together with evaluation of the program.
