TA Openings

We have open jobs for a Special Education Teaching Assistant AND a General Education Teaching Assistant. Both positions work with students who need assistance in classrooms. 

 

Special Education students may need support with school work, behavioral choices, emotional regulation, or organization. The Special Ed TA position may involve riding the bus with a student.

 

The General Education TA may do some of the same work assisting students, but also may work with any student or group of students from a class. 

 

The best candidates relate well with children and staff, are sensitive to the needs of others, and have great attendance.

 

Qualified candidates will have:

  • An AA, AS, AAS (or higher) degree, or
  • Two years of post-secondary coursework (60 semester credits or 90 quarter credits) from an accredited institution of higher education which are applicable toward a bachelors degree, or
  • Passing score of 460 (or higher) on the ParaPro Assessment AND either a high school diploma or a GED certificate. (For more information on the ParaPro Assessment, contact Educational Testing Service at 1-800-772-9476 or www.ets.org/parapro)
