District Professional Learning Days Recommendations for Training: Instructional Paraprofessionals
Paraprofessionals & Instructional Aides should work with their campus administrators to meet campus needs and participate in professional learning on October 9 and 10.
SpEd: (All SpEd Paraprofessionals/Aides)
Morning Sessions: Determined by campus administration based upon the paraprofessional’s assigned role to best support the campus instructional focus and needs. This may take the form of the paraprofessional supporting campus/classroom needs on the campus for the morning and attending the designated afternoon sessions.
Afternoon Sessions: Instructional paraprofessionals who serve in ACES, SIC, and Life Skills should attend the sessions with the teacher/s they support. Behavior aides should plan to attend the ACES session. Resource aides may choose one of the three areas offered in the SpEd sessions based upon the students in which they work with most.
Campus Instructional Paraprofessionals: (any campus instructional paraprofessionals who serve students in non-sped roles such as MakerSpace Aides, Computer Aides, Bilingual Aides, etc)
Elementary and secondary instructional paraprofessionals should plan to join sessions with the teacher they support on a daily basis especially in the areas of ELAR and Math. Paraprofessionals should attend the sessions that best meet the needs of their assigned roles to meet the needs of students they support. There are many sessions of choice including instructional technology classes which could benefit those who support computer labs and Maker Space.
