Faculty/Staff Recruitment Report, Calendar Year 1992. Publication Number 92.10.
The Board of Trustees of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District (AISD) has set a goal of recruiting and promoting professionals and administrators to achieve a match between local and statewide ethnic percentages. Target percentages are derived from the most recent statewide percentages from the Texas Education Agency of professionals and administrators in the Texas public education work force. Compared to statewide percentages, the AISD employed in 1992: (1) 1.2 times as many Black teachers; (2) 1.4 times as many Hispanic teachers; (3) 2.2 times as many Black administrators; and (4) 1.4 times as many Hispanic administrators. For both Hispanics and Blacks, the AISD employed higher percentages of teachers and administrators than the available education work force in Texas or the country as a whole. Recruitment of minorities from the pool of new teachers will remain difficult for the AISD because the applicant pool is limited. Twelve figures and 10 attachments (in table form) provide information about teacher supply and demand. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
