The Georgia Instructional Assistance Program (IAP) earmarked $3,200,000 in grants to local school systems for supplemental instructors and aides in the form of additional certificated and/or noncertificated personnel to provide assistance in the elementary grades to classroom teachers. It was anticipated that through the intensive instruction and training all students would be able to achieve in the various subject matter areas in accordance with their potentials and abilities. This report describes and evaluates the implementation of this program in six elementary and two middle schools of the Atlanta Public Schools. Overall, the IAP resulted in more observable and measurable achievements by pupils and in more professional growth of staff members. The majority of all teachers who participated in the program favor continuing the program. (Author/DN)
