ESEA Title I: Instructional Aides Program.
Lile, Kurt; And Others
The Title I Program in the Fremont Unified School District is located at two target schools. Currently there are 39 instructional aides employed. Aides were recruited through letters to parents and notices on shopping center bulletin boards in the target area. A committee including the principals of the two schools, the resource teachers, and a training teacher interviewed and selected participants. A formal training program was conducted for a period of 6 weeks, 4 hours daily, by a target school principal and an experienced teacher. Trainees received instruction in academic as well as general education topics. The instructional aides are used in classrooms and pull-out programs to give individualized instruction to identified students in language arts and mathematics. They also perform other routine duties for the teacher. The resource teachers are responsible for the supervision of the total program in each target school; they hold weekly inservice meetings for the instructional aides so that their education is on-going. The program is evaluated by aides, teachers, principals, resource teachers, and reading and math specialists. Aides are observed monthly by the resource teacher and principal and evaluated yearly by the teacher. (The report includes copies of forms used in recruitment, placement, and evaluation and copies of some curriculum materials used in the training program.) (RT)
