Please read:  This class requires ten (10) practicum hours, where the student uses the information learned in the paraeducator program and put to practice it in the classroom. This requirement is the responsibility of the paraeducator student to coordinate. During the summer, it is difficult to accomplish the practicum hours because of the break. If you want to have your paraeducator application submitted to the BOEE by the start of the year, you will want to contact your local schools now to find out if you can do your practicum hours during summer school.
