7442 Teacher Assistants Student Teaching

House Bill 1414 permits teacher assistants who are enrolled in teacher education programs to continue working while they complete student teaching assignments. At the discretion of the LEA, teacher assistants may continue to receive their salary and benefits while student teacher in the same LEA where they are employed as a teacher assistant.
In an ongoing effort to recruit and retain highly qualified teachers the Wilkes County Board of Education will continue the salary and benefits of teacher assistants during their student teaching. This will work in conjunction with the tuition reimbursement program to show our commitment to growing our own teachers.
It will be the responsibility of the principal at each school to work with their teachers to cover the vacancy created by the teacher assistant during their student teaching. No additional allotment will be given to schools
