Marlinton, West Virginia 24954-1298

Dear Mr. Long:

You have asked:

1. If a Faculty Senate of professional personnel so votes, may classroom aides become members of the Faculty Senate?

No, because classroom aides are not professional educators as defined by W.Va. Code 18A-1-1(c). See Code 18-5A-5(a).

2. If the answer to Number 1 is yes, may classroom aides become voting members of the Faculty Senate? May their votes be weighted?

See 1, above.

Hoping that I have been of service, I am,



Henry Marockie
State Superintendent of Schools
