Individual Paraprofessional Training Plan

Paraprofessional Qualification Requirements

The federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA, also known as the "No Child Left Behind Act") has established new requirements for Title 1 paraprofessionals who provide instructional support to students.  Instructional paraprofessionals who work in Title 1 schools or who are supported with Title 1 funds must meet certain academic requirements.

The staff of MTA's Center for Education Policy and Practice has prepared this Individual Paraprofessional Training Plan to assist paraprofessional members in meeting these requirements.
