Attention All New Jersey Schools:

Are you currently experiencing challenging and disruptive student behaviors in your classrooms?

Rutgers University is  providing FREE Behavior Support Coaching for teachers and paraprofessionals in grades K-5.


What is Paraprofessional Behavior Support Coaching?
Paraprofessional Behavior Support Coaching provides high quality on-site support and training to grades K-5 paraprofessionals in behavioral interventions and classroom management strategies as part of a research study at Rutgers University. We offer approximately 8 job-embedded collaborative coaching sessions that focus on helping paraprofessional classroom aides implement evidence-based behavioral interventions for students that have challenging and disruptive behaviors. This professional development opportunity is sponsored by the US Dept. of Education and is at no cost to your school.

How Can My School Become Involved?
We are actively recruiting partner schools for the current 2021-2022 school year and would gladly welcome the opportunity to work with additional schools that are interested in participating.

Which Schools Can Participate?
Elementary Schools serving Grades K-5 Only

Who Can Participate?
Paraprofessional Classroom Aides (also known as instructional assistants, educational assistants, instructional aides) and their corresponding classroom Teachers are eligible to participate in the project.

How Can My School Qualify?
Schools should have at least 3 classrooms with 3 to 5 students in each classroom that have challenging and disruptive behaviors. A qualifying paraprofessional must be in each classroom.
