PARAPROFESSIONAL STAFF

PARAPROFESSIONAL MISSION

ERESC paraprofessionals are considered to be important providers of support services in all schools. The role of the ERESC paraprofessional is to provide support and assistance to students and the classroom teacher. Paraprofessionals are employed to improve and maintain an educational environment conducive to learning.

 

ERESC paraprofessionals provide services to the school district in which they are assigned, under the direction of the ERESC administration in partnership with that school district personnel. Paraprofessionals take daily direction from the classroom/special education teacher, district behaviorist, consultants and building principal to which they are assigned.

A para can have a profound and significant influence on student performance. When paraprofessionals work as a team with the classroom teacher and other professional school staff, positive changes can result in student achievement and behavior. ERESC paraprofessionals are values as members of the educational team who endeavor each day to make a difference in the lives of their students.
