Nielsen, Earl T.
Designed to assist school administrators in their efforts to secure, train, and retain the most qualified instructional aides available, the monograph discusses procedures for employment, payroll processing, aide supervision, performance appraisal, and legal aspects involved in the hiring of instructional aides. Specific topics include recruitment, interviews, selection, orientation, employee handbooks, record-keeping, types of systems, and a suggested evaluation process. Included is an extensive checklist of possible tasks for the aide, arranged in the following categories: general tasks, housekeeping, non-instructional, audiovisual, and instruction-related. The section on legal aspects includes information on rules and regulations, staffing ratio, teacher presence, health, compensation, benefits, time off, layoffs, and reemployment. A contract, aide evaluation form, and other sample forms and procedures are followed by a bibliography of over 30 books and articles published between 1951 and 1974. (LH)
