WCESC Substitute Educational Aides (Paraprofessionals)

If you are eligible to apply as a substitute teacher in the SWOCOG you will have the option to also be a substitute educational aide for WCESC special needs programming by completing the application process as usual.

If you are not eligible to be a substitute teacher because you do not hold a bachelor’s degree, you can still be a substitute educational aide for WCESC. Please keep reading to find out how.
