Notes

  1. An employee who has earned 48 semester college hours or more is not required to satisfy the in-service hours or take the Praxis test.
  2. Paraprofessionals are required to work directly with students at least 50% of their day.
  3. A Principal’s recommendation is not automatic. It is dependent upon staffing & the assigned duties of the employee.
  4. However, once Para-qualified, the employee is eligible to interview and possibly transfer to school sites in need of Paraprofessionals.
