Paraprofessional Quality: Action Guide for Parents and Communities

Oct 29, 2006
  • Description

NCLB contains provisions designed to upgrade the qualifications for Title I paraprofessionals who assist teachers with instruction, and give assurance that Title I students who need the most help are taught by highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals. NCLB Action Briefs, a project of Public Education Network (PEN) and the National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education (NCPIE), are designed to keep community and parent leaders up to date on various provisions of NCLB. The action briefs are written in easy-to-use language focused on specific sections of the law and include pertinent regulations, a glossary of terms, action steps, and additional resources.
