Paraeducator bill passes Senate

A small technical amendments bill, HB 1658, that describes how paraeducator training will be conducted, e.g., in person training for at least one day.,  passed unanimously after an amendment by Senator Keiser (Burien).  Keiser’s amendment made it easier for paraeducators who want to become teachers to qualify for a conditional scholarship.

Next up is negotiations between House and Senate on differences between the bills they passed.  I expect they will reach agreement without much problem.
