We have uncovered updated guidance from the federal government regarding Title I-A funded paraprofessionals. Requirements that were in place the day before ESSA went into effect are still applicable. In other words, Title I-A paraprofessionals are required to have an associate's degree, completed two years of study at an institution of higher education, or passed a paraprofessional examination. Any paraprofessional hired for FY20 must meet one of these qualifications.
