TBIP paraeducator study approved in House

The House strongly voted to support a study of the use of paraeducators in the TBIP (Transitional Bilingual Instruction Program).  HB 2590, sponsored by Representative Lillian Ortiz-Self, requires schools to report how many teacher vacancies there are, how many paraeducators are filling in for teachers, and the training of paraeducators by school districts.  Further, there is additional reporting from community and technical colleges what they are doing to train TBIP paraeducators.

PSE supports the legislation in the hopes it will shine a light on the need for the State and school districts to better support the instructional role paraeducators play with students who need additional help to succeed in school.
