When does the hiring for parapros get started?

Does your school/district expect to be hiring new people for this school year?
If so, will it be full-time or half-time?

In the school district I work, hiring for new paraprofessional usually takes place beginning to mid-August (we start school end of August). Usually paras are not hired before July 1st. So much can change, kids get registered that never show and things like that. They like to get things as definitive as they can before they commit to a new para.

It is very unlikely the school system I work will hire new paras this school year. The school district I am in is in the process of cutting para jobs. They will not eliminate individual paras, but as they leave their positions, they will not be replaced. They move paras around the system to cover the most immediate needs. Special education teachers will eventually replace paras in the school system I work.

a core group (the minimum necessary) are usually assigned now before or as school ends. They are all reminded that assignments can and often do change. Then, in August/Sept, as classes/students are considered with the real numbers in place, we bring back or hire new to meet the needs.
