ELO-P Staffing Requirements

    • Ensure at a minimum all staff members who directly supervise students meet the minimum qualifications for an instructional aide, pursuant to the policies of the school district.
  • The selection of the program site coordinators/supervisors is subject to the approval of the school site principal.
  • Maintains a student-to-staff member ratio of no more than 20 to 1.

Instructional Aide Requirements

A number of questions about how the Instructional Aide(IA) requirements are applied to ELO-P have arisen recently. We are working with our partners to provide further clarity on this topic. In the meantime, you can access information about IA/paraprofessionals on the CDE website: https://www.cde.ca.gov/nclb/sr/tq/paraprofessionals.asp
