Bilingual Education Paraprofessional Training Program.
The Paraprofessional Training Project at California State University, Chico, is operated through a consortium of the University, Colusa County Schools, and Butte Community College. The 3-year program provides trainee paraprofessional teaching staff to work with the predominantly Spanish-speaking, limited-English-proficient school population of the school district while the trainees are improving instructional skills and gaining university credit applicable toward a later degree. It includes formal classroom and related field experiences for the trainees. Program improvements recommended include offering more courses in convenient off-campus locations and cooperative efforts to develop creative and flexible work scheduling. (MSE)
