Paraeducators are an integral part of the learning and teaching team. Under the supervision of the teachers, paraeducators assist with multiple levels of support in schools.  Their role can include preparing learning materials, assisting in instructing individuals and small groups of students, and working one-on-one with students with special needs.

For information on paraeducator requirements, please visit the Washington State Professional Educator Standards Board website.
