This monograph is designed to assist administrative school personnel in selecting, training, and retaining the best qualified instructional aides available. It covers five areas: (1) employment procedures--outlining important points under recruitment, applications, examinations, interviews, and selection; (2) payroll procedures--outlining how to reach an understanding with the potential employee on dutues, titles, and salary and benefits; (3) supervision for the aide--providing orientation and inservice training to the aide; (4) performance appraisal--reviewing the improvement of the aide's performance, with suggestions for seven procedural steps, a sample task list, contract, and evaluation form; and (5) legal aspects--the need to review relevant local and state laws prior to hiring instructional aides; included are reviews of sections of the education code. For instructional aides to add to the total educational program, adequate attention must be given to these areas if the aides are to be successful. The appendix includes examples of forms and successful procedures, as well as citations of selected references for further study. (MD)
