Whereas there is some indication that personnel (called paraprofessionals) who do not meet minimum qualifications are assuming the roles of professional faculty in some community colleges,


Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the Chancellor's Office to research the use of paraprofessionals in community colleges and issue an advisory to the colleges regarding clarification of the:
(a) roles and definitions of paraprofessionals,
(b) job descriptions that paraprofessionals may legitimately perform at the colleges, and
(c) positions that paraprofessionals may not fill, according to Title 5 Regulations and the Education Code.

Status Report: 

Found not Feasible despite such urging, no action is likely.
