Paraeducator Certificate Program

This online five-course program of study, provided in conjunction with Charter Oak State College, is designed for aspiring or practicing paraeducators interested in obtaining college credit. They may apply these credits toward other programs, including associate's or bachelor's degrees.

ParaPro Assessment

CREC is now a testing site for the Educational Testing Service's (ETS) ParaPro Assessment. ETS developed the ParaPro Assessment as a way to satisfy the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act, which requires that paraeducators serving in an instructional capacity have an associate of arts degree, completed two years of college, or have otherwise demonstrated adequate academic knowledge.

CREC provides payroll and timekeeping services, liability insurance, staff supervision, and administration and performance evaluations.
