Paraeducators provide the majority of instruction in programs designed by the legislature to reduce the opportunity gap. By setting common statewide standards, requiring training in the standards, and offering career development for paraeducators, as well as training for teachers and principals who work with paraeducators, students in these programs have a better chance of succeeding.
Mission and vision
A fully trained paraeducator workforce that supports student learning.
The Paraeducator Board ensures statewide professional standards and training for paraeducators so they are equipped to support diverse student learning. The Board empowers paraeducators to pursue career advancement by supporting accessible pathways to teacher certification.
