Paraprofessional Rules

Paraprofessional and teacher aide are terms used to refer to paid instructional assistants supervised by a licensed teacher. Non-instructional assistants, such as personal care assistants and translators, are not considered paraprofessionals or teacher aides. All paraprofessionals (teacher aides) must have either a Statement of Approval from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), a Paraprofessional Endorsed Educator License with Stipulations (ELS-PARA) or one of the other eligible credentials stipulated in Section 25.510 Endorsement for Paraprofessional Educators of the administrative code.


For more information regarding paraprofessionals please visit the Will ROE licensure page for paraprofessionals.
