Summary

The author claims that the titles used for paid paraprofessionals who aid in the school instructional programs or who relieve teachers of certain pupil supervisory duties are many and of contrasting variety. One objective of this study was, therefore, to decrease, if possible, the heterogeneity of nomenclature attached to these positions through resolving the suggestions of administrative practitioners into a few titles, in best fit according to the conditions of employment. A second consideration of the study centers on the supervision of paraprofessionals, although State regulations mandate professional responsibility over paraprofessionals. Information was obtained from questionnaires sent to chief school administrators in districts where instructional paraprofessionals are known to be part of the school staffs. Seven different conditions of paraprofessional work were described (e.g., works with only one teacher, works with two or more teachers, is a member of a team teaching unit, etc.) and administrators were requested to react to each condition even though the condition did not exist in their districts. Responses from the 268 participating administrators indicate that the most common condition of instructional paraprofessional employment is exclusively supervision, with paraprofessionals relieving teachers of duties involving pupil control in study halls, hallways, playgrounds, and at other points on the school campus where pupils congregate.
