• All paraeducators working in special education are required to have 20 hours of annual training (July 1-June 30, every school year). These hours are NOT recorded on your timesheet, but you will be paid at the $10/hr. training rate for your time.

    If you do not hold an Associate’s Degree or higher (or 24+ credits of post-secondary education), you must focus your initial 20 hours on earning the Credential of Competency through the Pennsylvania Department of Education. For the 10 Standards' training videos, click on this link: https://pattan.framewelder.com. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and choose "Bureau of Special Education Paraprofessional Credential of Competency Training Series". Email me your completion certificates for time credit and payment. This time does not go on your timesheet. Refer to the email you received upon hire for complete instructions on how to apply for the Credential.

    All training sessions you take should pertain to your daily job in the classroom.
