ParaPro Certification Exam Prep Training!

The start date for the ParaPro Certification Exam Preparation Course has been delayed.  Please call or e-mail Anita ASAP for more information - 218-387-4547; anita.jeziah@aeoa.org .

The need for Paraprofessionals in Cook County is growing!  The school district needs people for this fall.   Starting wages have just gone up.  If you have two years of full time equivalent college experience, you may be able to apply directly.  But if not, and you would like to work with children during the regular school year, this class is for you!   

There is no charge to the individual, as course fees are paid for by grant dollars received from the Minnesota Department of Education.  The course includes 40 hours of training, and the official PRAXIS practice test at the end.  Completion of the course and an appropriate score on the practice test can give you an edge in the hiring process for a Paraprofessional position in Cook County.  Please call or e-mail for details.
