In this most recent contract settlement, we negotiated the following language:
“Paraprofessionals who have received his/her teaching certification, are recommended for employment by his/her building administrator, and who apply for teaching positions will receive four interviews provided that there are four vacancies for which the paraprofessional is qualified, three interviews provided that there are three vacancies for which the paraprofessional is qualified, two interviews provided that there are two vacancies for which the paraprofessional is qualified, and one interview provided that there is one vacancy for which the paraprofessional is qualified.”
The school department sent out a letter to 19 paras offering them the above opportunity. We want to make sure that no eligible para has mistakenly been overlooked. If you are a paraprofessional who is licensed to teach and interested in a teaching position but did not receive a recent letter from the school district inviting you to apply for a teaching position, please email here ASAP. Thank you.
