Description
The micro-credentials in this stack are meant to be completed by paraeducator-teacher teams. Teams can be any configuration of paraeducators and teachers who work together regularly to support students. They can also include other related service providers (e.g., speech-language pathologists, school nurses, transition specialists, school psychologists), although the design of some of the micro-credentials and related artifacts are specific to the partnership between paraeducators and teachers. Each member of the team must submit for the micro-credential independently. The majority of the work requires the involvement of at least two team members (at least one paraeducator and one teacher/related service provider) but, all team members are not required to submit a micro-credential for review. Certain artifacts must be completed independently, while others can be completed as a team (i.e., team members can submit the same artifact). This will be specified for each artifact in Part 2: Work Examples/Artifacts/Evidence of the Submission Guidelines & Evaluation Criteria section.
