The Minnesota Paraprofessional Consortium, which has been in existence for over 15 years, consists of nearly forty individuals, including teachers and paraprofessionals from local school districts, and individuals from state agencies, unions, and institutions of higher education. These individuals have provided guidance to a variety of activities designed to support and enhance Minnesota's paraprofessional workforce.
The purpose of the Minnesota Paraprofessional consortium is to advise the Minnesota Department of Education regarding activities that prepare, support and recognize the paraprofessional workforce in Minnesota.
