| Paraeducators are important at Carr Creek due to the increasing number of students with a wide range of special education needs. These children require special services within the general education classroom. For these students to reap the social and educational benefits of the general education setting, they require various kinds of in-class supports. Carr Creek of provides additional support through the employment of paraeducators. Our paraeducators provide a critical link for inclusive programs, working with individual students and assisting teachers in meeting the needs of all students. Our paraeducators are seen as participating members of the class and the instructional team. We acknowledge the importance of paraeducators and developing infrastructures that support their work.
