Paraeducator preparation for high school students
About the Partnership: The partner districts have adopted the CO-TOP model to provide a 8 credit certificate to high school students in two technical schools as part of their Career and Technical Education programs. On completion of the certificate, the high-school students can seek employment as paraprofessionals in school districts or transfer the credits to a two or four year college.
