An evaluation report on faculty and staff recruitment by the Austin Independent School District (AISD) is presented. Recruitment goals included increasing the percentage of the Black and Hispanic staff population to equal the percentage of Blacks and Hispanics among the student population. Attention is directed to the ethnic percentages of AISD students in comparison with the state as a whole, along with the ethnic and sex percentages of AISD professional employees in comparison with the state and nation. The labor market available to AISD is also described. Information concerning the ethnicity and sex of teachers who were interviewed and hired after either campus visits or in-office visits is presented. Additionally, data on teachers placed in "highly visible positions" are provided. The effects of the recruiting and hiring efforts of the District are also examined. Comparisons of the 1981 goals and actual staffing levels are presented, and projections are used to determine if the District could have reached its goals during 1981. Finally, a summary of the goal commitments prepared by administrators and campuses concerning faculty/staff recruitment for 1982 are provided. A summary of the evaluation findings are included. (SW)
