I supervise a district of 16 medica centers and have specialists at only
the four secondaries, in addition to myself.  We have parapros at each of
the 12 elementaries who undergo a training program with me before they
are allowed to start in our centers.  We organize everything the same way
that it is listed in Children's Catalog, adding nonprint materials as
they are organized in Hicks & Tillin.  Since we've been doing this for
almost 20 years, I have decided not to make changes in labels, DDC
numbers because of the retrospective wor involved and the lack of staff.
We are at least consistent.

We also have a media skills and appreciation curriculum and computer
education curriculum that is implemented by the parapros with children
under the supervision of their classroom teachers.  It's efficient,
organized, and very cost-effective.  I make no apologies for my parapro
staff at elementary, although I've had to fight for professionals at
secondary.  If you like I'll send more information about our training
program, curriculum, etc.
