  • Highly Qualified Paraprofessional Requirements & Frequently Asked Questions
    • Highly Qualified Paraprofessional Requirements
    • NCLBA requires local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving Title I funds to ensure that their instructional paraprofessionals paid with Title I funds are qualified and specifies three routes by which paraprofessionals may demonstrate their qualifications. It is up to each LEA to determine which of these routes they will accept. The information in this document describes the federal requirements for paraprofessionals and the routes to meeting these requirements, as well as answers to some frequently asked questions. It also provides specific information on how to access the ParaPro assessment for those LEAs that choose to require their paraprofessionals to pass this standardized assessment in order to demonstrate their qualifications.
