Services Offered By CRECWe Offer

Analysis of Recruitment and Selection Process

CREC can review your district's current processes and provide recommendations to gain focus on the key elements of the hiring process. CREC has the expertise to assist districts in the areas of developing documents, creating recruitment plans, defining advertising resources, screening, interviewing and selecting candidates, and hiring qualified staff.

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.

Review of Diversity and Equal Opportunity

CREC can help districts provide effective leadership through the review of recruitment policies and procedures, legal compliance in advertising, promotion and transfer procedures of internal candidates, and applicant screening efforts.

Workforce Training Solutions

CREC's Workforce Training Solutions workshops incorporate a blended learning approach, which include presentations, discussions, and role playing. Employees learn new skills through on-site training with colleagues who face similar challenges. Facilitated by CREC's experienced trainers, your employees will leave prepared to integrate new knowledge, skills, and ideas into their daily work.
