Just so you know TVIs cost a lot more than aides.  (For our districts
services, we can get, at a minimum, 8 hours of aide time for the price
of 1 hour of TVI time.)  If school funding is cut, in many cases it will
be the TVI time that is cut.  No contest!  The only exception will be
students with strong parent advocates.  In these tough fiscal times
districts make some tough calls that we may all not agree with, but that
is reality.
