Frequently Asked Questions
2019-20 Para Training Schedule (contact 360-965-0070 to register for face-to-face courses) UPDATE APRIL, 2020: Due to COVID-19, we will be offering video courses for staff to take.
What this means for you, as an Instructional Paraeducator:
1. School districts must provide Fundamental Course of Study (FCS) training to all instructional paraeducators beginning with the 2019-20 schoolyear. [Courses may take place online or via a face-to-face presentation.]
2. Once paraeducators complete the 28 hours, they will need to create an account in the Education Data System (EDS) through OSPI to upload their credits. EDS will not accept the credits until all 28 have been completed - which will occur at the end of next school year. More information will follow on how to set up your account.
More details on the Paraeducator Certificate Program are available on the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) website.
