Paraeducator Certificate Program
The Paraeducator Certificate Program offers statewide standards-based training for all paraeducators, and supports a career growth ladder for those who wish to pursue a teaching profession.
All experienced and newly hired paraeducators will complete a four day (28 hours) Fundamental Course of Study during the 2019-20 school year. Once this training is met, paraeducators are then required to complete an additional 70 hours of professional development, within three years, to meet the General Paraeducator Certificate.
