Paraeducators finally achieve State recognition

This morning, Governor Inslee signed ESHB 1115, PSE’s paraeducator bill.  Inslee’s action puts an end to PSE’s five year effort to convince the legislature that paraeducators need to be recognized by the State as a critical member of the instruction team.  However, there is plenty more to be do as the paraeducator board is formed and the Board starts to work on developing the standards, training modules, career ladder, and, advanced paraeducator standards.

Additionally, we will be seeking state funding for the board and training ($23 million) in the next budget cycle two years from now.
