Details:
To ensure educators know, understand, and can apply Georgia's Code of Ethics for Educators to their daily practice, paraprofessional ethics modules were developed by Georgia's RESAs in collaboration with the GaPSC.

The enhanced learning gained by paraprofessionals who participate in the training will help protect them, their colleagues, their schools, their school districts, their community, and, most importantly, their students, by enhancing professionalism and school safety.

You will have 3 weeks to complete this course at-your-own pace.
