Create and Hire Special Education Paraprofessional 5.5 hours - Page 283  
Board Priorities:
File Attachment:
Marks elementary needs additional assistance in their SDC classroom. We currently have a substitute para filling in helping mold behaviors and helping students navigate unstructured time to increase safety for all students. Providing this support would allow the campus to operate safely and would provide students the extra support needed to be successful inside and outside the classroom. This paraprofessional would spend the morning at Marks then transition to Bryant. At Bryant there are approximately 24 students that need assistance in the general education classroom. This additional support would provide the service minutes and support outlined in their Individual Education Plans at Bryant providing better educational benefit and student success.  
State and Federal Funding. Approximately $13,000-14,000 yearly, plus statutory benefits.  
Recommend to approve the additional special education paraprofessional at 5.5 hours per day.
