Summary

How paraprofessionals relate to innovation within the high school was the point of investigation in a study completed in 1973. Of the 324 New York State secondary principals contacted, 243 (75 percent) supplied information and opinion in response to questionnaires. High school principals believe that innovation is positively related to the presence of paraprofessionals. To develop new programs, paraprofessionals are needed, although the need is more pronounced in some programs than in others. In schools where principals support the need for paraprofessionals in innovation, greater numbers of new programs exist. A principal's positive attitude for the need of paraprofessionals in new programs parallel an increase in the number of paraprofessionals. A positive association exists between the number of paraprofessionals employed in a school and the number of new programs in use. (Author/MLF)
