Cowley College provides other Paraprofessional Option

 

Designed so a student can easily transition into the Associate of Arts degree track with just a few additional classes, Cowley College recently redefined the school’s Paraprofessional options.

The suggested 48 credit hour course listing meets the requirements of school districts and the Kansas State Department of Education for becoming a “benefit” paraprofessional.

The course work is designed to expand skills in basic general education content and develop an understanding of the unique responsibilities of the paraprofessional. The program is outlined to allow for future educational advancement and will offer an opportunity to easily transition into the AA degree for Paraprofessional Educator.

The Associate of Arts in Paraprofessional Educator requires 63 credit hours to earn an Associate Degree. The program is outlined to allow for future educational advancement and will offer an opportunity to easily transition into the AA degree for Education.

While all course work for both the Benefit Program and the AA degree are available online, Cowley College is also offering the EDU 5520 Introduction to Paraprofessionalism and EDU6220 Education Technology courses as second 8 week courses this fall.

Employees of Cowley or Sumner County Schools can get the Educator Appreciation scholarship for 3 college credit hours.
