Assistants will be missed by teachers

When the Hart district reduced its resource instructional assistants by 30 as part of the cuts made to meet the state's proposed budget requirements, some people may not have realized that move would completely eliminate the position.

The resource instructional assistants help the resource teachers by reading tests to students who have difficulty reading, providing math support and assisting resource students in the mainstream classrooms. The Resource Specialist Program serves students who are in the special education program less than 50 percent of their school day, spending most of their time in a regular classroom.
