  • Paraeducator Series - April 17-May 22, 2019

    We have a few sessions left in our Spring Paraeducator series.  We encourage you to send staff to take advantage of the quality training that is taking place for staff integral to the success of our special education programs.


    There is one Workshop in particular that will be zero cost to you as it is covered by a Grant MCOE received called the Student Support and Academic Enrichment grant. Youth In Arts will engage your Paraeducators in a highly engaging workshop “Confidence & Compassion Through Creativity” on April 17th.


    The workshop will address the following:

    • Multi-disciplinary approach to utilizing the arts to empower any student to express themselves, building confidence and meeting IEP goals in the process.
    • Model hands-off techniques for empowering students to create their own work through the use of arts-based visual cue cards, sign language, and by sharing an array of adaptive tools.

    If you have any questions about this series please contact Laura Trahan, Education Services – 415-499-5870
