Paraprofessionals are known by many titles including, but not limited to, “classroom aides,” “teachers’ aides,” “teachers’ assistants,” “para-educators,” and “paras.” Their roles vary district to district and building to building across the state of Ohio. Building the instructional capacity of paraprofessionals through best practices in instructional design and delivery is one of our goals. We provide professional learning opportunities within districts and provide targeted technical assistance and support for professional development planning and facilitation based on district needs.
