    • Sub paraeducators are hard to find. MPP FLEX won’t leave students unsupported and schools out of compliance.

    • We provide recruiting, onboarding, payroll, benefits, on-site evaluation, and development of consistent support staff while saving you time and money.

    Designed for Special Education-Specific Schools or Districts.

    Special Education-specific schools require a highly specialized workforce and typically operate all year around. Our Managed Paraeducator Program helps schools check all the boxes for operating in compliance so that schools can continue receiving state/federal funding.

    (R) Recruiting and Onboarding.

    • Ongoing R&O supports positions that are historically hard to fill.
    • Finding the right people for the right role - no revolving door for hiring and leaving.

    (I) IEP and IDEA Compliance.

    • All students have IEPs in the school requiring data collection and progress monitoring.
    • Must answer to all sending district or school requirements and follow State and Federal requirements.

    (G) Growth and Retention of Paraeducators.

    • Important relationship building and in-depth understanding of student needs require long-term commitment, growth, and retention of paraeducator staff.
    • Observation and data collection for skills growth.

    (H) Here every day. Not a substitute.

    • Student needs are ongoing and often require intensive support every day.
    • Maintenance of Effort for state compliance.
    • Paraeducators become a trusted member of the team.

    (T) Train right and right away.

    • Schools cannot afford to hire and train later. Paraeducators must have general knowledge on day one.
    • Additional training for crisis intervention and de-escalation methods, diapering and toilet assistance for students with special needs, and intensive 1:1 cognitive behavior structured learning activities.
