K-3 Trained Instructional Aides @ ROES, BES, & OHES

Elementary Classroom Instructional Assistants, Literacy and Numeracy               $250,000 per year

To address rising class sizes in Grades K-3, OPEF is funding two classroom instructional assistants per grade level, per school, trained in Columbia University’s Reading and Writing Workshop and the OPUSD’s math program to provide additional support to our students on a daily basis. This provides more adult contact in the classroom.  It takes the burden off of the PTAs/PFAs to fund teaching assistants and equalizes the numbers of them across our three elementary schools.
