Fundamental Course of Study for Paraeducators

About

Fundamental Course of Study

This spring, Washington lawmakers allocated funds for school districts to provide two days (14 hours) of professional development to their paraeducators on the Fundamental Course of Study (FCS), which is the training approved by the PESB Paraeducator Board. This training to paraeducators is required during the 2019-2020 school year.

ESD 112 will be providing FCS trainings throughout the year to help districts meet this requirement that will be:

  • Aligned to Board Standards – Courses will align to PESB course outline & learning objectives
  • Tracked in pdEnroller – Makes registration and keeping track of clock hours simple and seamless

Please refer to the two PESB documents below if you have any questions on implementation in your district, or on the program in general:
