Classroom and Lab Assistants

what is a classroom or lab assistant?

A classroom or lab assistant is a student employee, hired by SAS, who assists students with disabilities in classroom or lab requirements and procedures that the student may be unable to complete independently. Typical duties of a classroom or lab assistant include, but are not limited to:

  • cutting
  • lifting
  • pouring
  • retrieving equipment
  • gathering supplies

The classroom or lab assistant performs only the duties directed by the student, and will not prompt or guide a student in performing a specific task or course requirement.
