The schedule above includes 15 min before student day and 10 min after student day to support with student arrival and departure.


*We may seek to adjust minutes per day to allow for a 20-30 minute collaboration time on Wed early release day for paraprofessionals with the teachers with whom they work.  We will examine this possibility with paraprofessionals and teachers.



3 It is encouraged that paraprofessionals be included in collaboration when possible.

4 High school paraprofessionals work 35 hours per week.

5 School leaders are allowed to stagger paraprofessional schedules, assuming students’ needs and IEPs are met, and that paras can participate in at least 45 min per week of collaboration.



Please note whether any paraprofessionals have alternative schedules.
