* The department worked with the College of Letters and Sciences to make head TAs available to courses taught by Faculty Associates.  The idea is that you can identify a specific TA (1 per course) that you want to hire to help with course administration, hopefully but not necessarily for the whole year.  Head TAs are expected to have some different roles than Standard TAs, and in return earn higher pay. 

To see more information on Head TA, see CS Internal KB: Computer Sciences - Teaching - Teaching Assistants.
