Changes in Paraeducator 1 Certification Process Have Many Asking Questions

The New Hampshire state Board of Education recently voted to adopt changes in the certification requirements for paraeducators “The Department of Education has really degraded Para 1 certification to the basic minimum required to be employed,” said Jill Owens, NEA-NH Executive Board member and Education Support Professional in Hampstead.  “When our paras first became certified after working to fill out the Competency form required under the old rule, they had a whole new view of their capabilities and worth.  It is hard to put into words, but their job became

Professional Development Activity Update

NEA-NH’s Public Education & School Support (PESS) Happenings by Dr. Irv Richardson and Ally Snyder Summer Leadership Week NEA-NH hosted an excellent week of trainings, August 1-5, 2016, offering 29 classes to 119 members – some of whom attended workshops during each day of the leadership week.
