-Educational Assistants ( EA's) are integral members of Title I PK classrooms. They support instructional programs, provide small group or one-on-one support, maintain a safe learning environment, and assist with vital daily tasks such as meal service and student supervision.
-Unlike classroom teachers, when EAs are absent, no substitutes are provided.
-When the ratio of students to teachers doubles, students are less likely to get the support and help they need to succeed. Educational programs suffer as a result.
-This policy affects students in all of the Title I PK programs (Beach, Rosa Parks, Woodlawn, Boise-Eliot/Humboldt, and King).
-Funding needs to be secured for Educational Assistant substitutes in the Pre-K programs by the district. Thank you!
