proposalresponse We appreciate the proposals submitted last week. Rather than approve proposals as written, kidsfirst would like to reiterate its commitment to the existing classroom aides program by: Insisting that the school explore all available options to recruit aides, as promised last spring. This includes a willingness to support USD partnership. Making available additional funds - up to $30K - to the the existing $25K budgeted for 2013-2014. The current mandate to target 3 hours/classroom/week is changed to up to 6 hours/classroom/week as needed. Requesting that immediate and specific needs for aides be addressed first, as determined by teaching staff as a whole. Teachers will have the freedom to allocate first to lower grades as they see fit (up to 6 hours per week).
proposalresponse In summary… If the $25,000 classroom assistant budget is exceeded, an additional $30,000 (totaling $55,000), will be made available for the classroom assistants budget in 2013-2014. Funds would be distributed among classrooms as determined by teaching staff to best promote learning in all classrooms…perhaps with special consideration to lower grades… compensating for higher class sizes… with an understanding that each classroom may have up to 6 hours/week/classroom if possible
