The California Paraeducator Conference debuted in 1998 in Sacramento with about one hundred attendees. Since then, the annual conference has continued to grow, drawing well over a thousand attendees each year.
The growth of the conference is a clear indication of the dedication paraeducators have to their profession and students. Districts also see the value in the professional training Paraeducators receive at the conference; many choosing to provide funding and paid work days for their Paraeducators to attend.
Paraeducators do more than teach children. They are student’s confidant, health coach, safe person and more. The true effects of a paraeducator’s influence in the classroom and the community are immeasurable. That’s why this conference provides the knowledge and training paraeduators need. They come to learn the latest in industry standards, to learn about the rights they have under the law and to network with other CSEA paraeducators across the state.
The success of the conference can be found in the respect, value and pride paraeducators feel in their profession and the confidence they gain when they take new knowledge and skills back to their districts.
