Parapro Safety & Best Practices
Your paraprofessional staff members are at your schools’ front lines, so it is not surprising they represent the largest number of claims our member districts encounter every year. Keeping your parapros safe not only provides the staff and students with a healthy working environment but also limits the number of incidents at your district.
This month’s EduSeries training video, presented by SET SEG Member Support Specialist Deana Coolidge, Highland Pines School Principal Tracey Henry, and Highland Pines School Assistant Principal Stephanie Van Petten, provides an in-depth look at the safety program employed at Tuscola ISD and discusses best practices that can work at any district, such as:
- Effective de-escalation techniques
- Appropriate risk management considerations
- SET SEG Workers’ Compensation Safety Program benefits
With insight from these experienced experts, explore some of the effective methods you can utilize to keep your parapros safe and mitigate injuries and claims.
