Geographic Area Served

New Mexico State-wide
Project Description
Educational Assistants applied to the program. Students were selected to participate. A dedicated Academic Advisor was assigned to work with the students. They receive assistance in scheduling
classes. Some classes were designed to meet the specific needs of the students as working educational assistants. In the Bachelor Degree program special arrangements have been made to offer needed courses at our campus to save on travel time and costs.

The No Child Left Behind legislation mandated that teachers, aids and administrators be highly qualified to provide the best education possible to our children. Not only do educators need to be held accountable, but they need to receive the professional development to do their jobs and provide the very best education possible.

Ensure that educational assistants in the classrooms are not only licensed, but educated and highly qualified to improve student learning and educational outcomes.

The follow-on grant in the P-16 series is to assist Educational Assistants earn their bachelor's degree in education and become highly qualified teachers who are more likely to stay in their communities. The school districts were selected based on poverty levels.
Participants must be employeed as Educational Assistants in the Belen Consolidated Schools district. In order to be admitted to the projects, students must remain in good academic standing, take at least two courses each semester and remain employed.
