• Paraeducator Fundamental Course of Study (FCS)

    The Washington State Legislature enacted a new law that will require all paraeducators to earn a general certificate within the next three school years. The first step in this process toward paraeducator certification is to complete the Fundamental Course of Study (FCS), which requires 28 hours of training before completing the other required hours toward the full certificate.  Our district's priority is to support our paraeducators through this new requirement through providing information and opportunities for earning the required training hours.  Learn more about the offerings available through our Teaching and Learning Department.

    Have you completed your 28 hours?
