Paraprofessionals play a vital role at Milwaukee Public Schools to provide academic and behavioral support to students and assist with other important responsibilities. Application materials for paraprofessionals are sent directly to the schools.
Application requirements include a resume and signed letters of recommendation, plus:
- At least 48 college credits OR
- A passing score on a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction paraprofessional course
If an applicant has the 48 college credits and no license, MPS will assist with the application.
