Requirements for Aide Positions

Federal law maintains that each state is responsible for “maintaining qualifications to ensure that personnel necessary to carry out this part are appropriately and adequately prepared and trained, including that those personnel have the content knowledge and skills to serve children with disabilities” [IDEA Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1412 (2004)].


Both the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) outline expectations for school districts throughout the country to properly train and supervise paraprofessionals. Title I of the ESEA, as amended by the NCLB Act requires that paraprofessionals serving in an instructional capacity meet higher standards of qualification. Those qualifications include having earned a secondary (high) school diploma or a recognized equivalent. In addition, paraprofessionals must meet one of the following requirements:

  • completed at least two years of study at an institution of higher education;
  • obtained an associate’s degree or higher; or
  • met a rigorous standard of quality demonstrating, through formal state or local academic assessment, knowledge of and the ability to assist in the instruction of reading, writing, and mathematics. (Florida uses the ETS ParaPro Assessment to meet this qualification.  Passing score is 464.)
