National Paraprofessional Appreciation Day

National Paraprofessional Appreciation Day
Posted on 04/03/2019

On the first Wednesday of April, we celebrate National Paraprofessional Appreciation Day! Join us celebrating our 801 amazing paras!

Paraprofessional Appreciation Day honors paraprofessional educators, who may also be known as paras. At Springfield Public Schools, Paraprofessionals provide assistance to teachers and other school personnel in the delivery of quality education and support services for students in an array of classroom settings. Examples of support services and educational settings include, but are not limited to: life skills, developmental classrooms, social, emotional, & behavioral support (SEBS), LINKS (Autism) program, visual or mobility orientation, language learning delays and medical care.

Stay tuned to our district’s Facebook & Instagram pages where we'll be highlighting four outstanding Paraprofessionals from our district!
