PARA RESOURCE MANUAL
June 28, 2009
Dear Instructional Paraeducator:
This web-based handbook is provided to you with the intent of informing and clarifying many of the responsibilities and duties related to the instructional paraeducator in the South Central Kansas Special Education Cooperative. We hope this handbook will make you feel a part of the South Central Kansas Special Education Cooperative family and assist you in becoming a professional instructional paraeductor. This handbook will be an ever-evolving work that will constantly be updated to keep you informed with the latest strategies and best practices in special education. It is impossible to include everything in this handbook you need to know, however, we hope that it will provide answers to many of the common questions you might have.
Items that need further clarification should be directed to your supervising teacher or Ryan Cunningham at the SCKSEC Administrative Office, phone: 620-672-7500.
Together, we are striving to offer the students of the South Central Kansas Special Education Cooperative the best educational experience possible. You are a very important part of our instructional team and your service and dedication does not go unnoticed. Thanks for all you do!
Assistant Director of Special Education
I would like to give thanks to former Assistant Director Steve Mead and all previous and current members of the Para Advisory Council without which this handbook would not have been possible. Thank you so much for your time and dedication to this project.
