Event Description

There’s no doubt that paraprofessionals are an essential part of our education system. 

Especially in at-risk schools, the addition of a paraprofessional is critical to help turn student performance around. But, recent NCLB and IDEA legislation has made the job of para-educators more complex and confusing than ever. 

Just what are the credentials you must meet under these new regulations and how will it affect your role in the classroom? Join this highly informative audio-session to find out the answers to these questions and more.  Education expert, Christy Drapala, will delve into the mysteries of IDEA and NCLB and what they mean for you and your students.

You will walk away with a more complete understanding of key NCLB concepts such as:

  • What job categories fall under the term, “paraprofessional”.
  • The requirements ‘paras’ must meet under Title I legislation.
  • The easiest way you can meet the “equivalent of two years of study” requirement.
  • What you can expect from the paraprofessional assessment.

You will also gain insight into IDEA and you  fall under the revised version:

  • What is IDEA and how will it affect your duties in the classroom.
  • The training and qualifications para-educators must meet to keep their positions.
  • What an IEP is and how you can implement it.
  • How to work with teachers and Child Study teams.
  • IDEA affect on the education of your students.

The latest NCLB and IDEA legislation affects not only what you teach and how you teach it — but whether you can continue to teach at all.

This is a can’t-miss audio-learning opportunity for anyone serving an educational support role.
