The Legislature recognizes the need to provide classroom instructors and other faculty with more time to instruct and to provide the means for them to utilize their professional knowledge and skills more effectively in the educational programs of the public schools. It is the intent of the Legislature to authorize the employment of instructional aides in order that classroom instructors and other faculty may draw upon the services of instructional aides to assist them in ways determined to be useful in improving the quality of educational opportunities for students.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 201. Effective September 25, 1990.)

88242.
  

Instructional aides shall not be utilized to increase the number of students in relation to the number of classroom instructors in any community college district.

All instructional aide positions in a community college district shall be assigned the basic title of “instructional aide” or other appropriate title designated by the governing board. To provide for differences in responsibilities and duties, additions to the basic title may be assigned such as “instructional aide I or II” or “instructional aide—volunteer,” or other appropriate title.

(Amended by Stats. 1981, Ch. 470, Sec. 407.)

88243.
  

As used in this article, “instructional aide” means a person employed to assist classroom instructors and other faculty in the performance of their duties and in the supervision of students and in instructional tasks which, in the judgment of the faculty to whom the instructional aide is assigned, may be performed by a person not qualified as a classroom instructor.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 202. Effective September 25, 1990.)

88244.
  

(a) Subject to the provisions of this article, any community college district may employ instructional aides to assist classroom instructors and other faculty in the performance of duties as defined in Section 88243. An instructional aide shall perform only such duties as, in the judgment of the faculty to whom the instructional aide is assigned, may be performed by a person not qualified as a classroom instructor. These duties shall not include assignment of grades to students. An instructional aide need not perform such duties in the physical presence of the instructor but the faculty member shall retain responsibility for the instruction and supervision of the students in his or her charge.

(b) Educational qualifications for instructional aides shall be prescribed by the community college district employer and shall be appropriate to the responsibilities to be assigned.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 203. Effective September 25, 1990.)

88245.
  

No instructional aide shall give out any personal information concerning any student who is not his or her own child or ward, except under judicial process, to any person other than a faculty member or administrator in the college which the student attends. A violation of this section may be a cause for disciplinary action, including dismissal.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 206. Effective September 25, 1990.)

88248.
