We all want to make sure that we have clear expectations for our paraprofessionals so we're all on the same page. This helps to protect everybody and leaves little room for confusion and misunderstanding.

Now, I understand that you may not have hours to put together a beautiful paraprofessional binder when you need it most. So today, I am walking you through how to provide paraprofessional training when you have absolutely NO time.

Let’s talk about how you can provide your paraprofessionals with vital information in 15 minutes or less. Sounds great, right? You can put together a paraprofessional training manual in very little time that will give them the information they need and provide clarity on your expectations.

We are covering what to include in this binder including what information from your school website you should have in the binder, the kind of schedule to include, important statement sheets you need, an one page strategy sheet, data sheets and checklists, and a classroom diagram with expectations.
