Elementary SEL Paraprofessional
The paraprofessional will support at risk students in a one-on-one or small group setting, monitor sensory breaks, and provide recess and office support.
JOB / DISTRICT / COMMUNITY HIGHLIGHTS:
Corunna Public Schools is looking for the best Paraprofessional available. Our district lives our mission statement of preparing an unprecedented number of students to be college and/or career ready on a daily basis. Our district is known for offering quality education in a small-town environment with the amenities of a larger community (our district buildings are five minutes away from Applebee’s, Culver’s, Meijer, Walmart, etc.).
Our county’s cost of living is incredibly low. We are a class “B” school (around 130 students per grade level) with a reputation for higher standards; as a result, nearly 40% of our students are school of choice. We have the only inclusive preschool in the county. Our school is the community “hub” and Homecoming is still a big deal in our small town, which is the county seat. Our community is incredibly supportive of our district as well. We have high-achieving athletic teams and award-winning extra-curricular programs. Despite having nearly 40% of students coming to us via school of choice, our constituents passed a nearly $17 million bond a few years ago to upgrade our buildings. We also were recently fortunate to have earned a $123,000 Michigan State Police competitive grant to upgrade security features in our buildings.
Our High School was also rated by US News and World Report as the BEST high school in Shiawassee County in its most recent evaluation.
