The Essex Regional Educational Services Commission (ERESC) provides comprehensive paraprofessional services to school districts throughout Essex County and beyond. ERESC paraprofessionals are considered to be important providers of support services in all schools. The role of the ERESC paraprofessional is to assist teachers with class support and/or with the daily care of students with physical disabilities, as well as emotional, cognitive, autistic and other special needs. Paraprofessionals are employed to improve and maintain an educational environment conducive to learning. ERESC paraprofessionals provide services to the school district under the direction of the ERESC administration in partnership with the school district personnel. Paraprofessionals take direction from the classroom teacher and building principal to which they are assigned and are supervised by the ERESC administration.
