Faculty/Staff Recruitment Report: Calendar Year 1983.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
This report presents the Austin Independent School District's (AISD) Affirmative Faculty/Staff Recruitment Plan 1983 evaluation findings. The plan has two long range goals: (1) to have male and female representation at all employment levels whenever possible; and (2) to attain ethnic percentages for all levels of the professional personnel population that approximately correspond to the ethnic percentages of the district's pupil enrollment. The report addresses: (1) ethnic distribution of AISD students and Texas students; (2) ethnic distribution of AISD employees and Texas employees; (3) ethnic distribution of the available labor market; (4) AISD recruitment and hiring efforts; and (5) current staffing patterns. Student overall ethnic percentages have changed little from 1982. Percentages of minority professionals and administrators have increased. AISD is getting closer to matching Black ethnic percentages, but is not close to matching Hispanic percentages. The percentages of Black or Hispanic student teachers and teachers newly certified are still small, although there was a noticeable increase from 1982 to 1983 in the case of Hispanics. Hiring goals were met for Black new professionals, but were three percentage points below goal for Hispanics. It appears the District put more effort into recruiting Blacks than Hispanics or Anglo/Others. (BS)
