DIGEST OF HB1707 (Updated April 10, 2003 3:16 PM - DI 84)

Title I paraprofessionals; waivers from federal law. Specifies that the department of education is the agency that: (1) identifies and disseminates to school corporations the criteria that Title I paraprofessionals must meet under federal statutes; and (2) determines the assessment that is required of certain paraprofessionals under federal statutes. Authorizes the department to seek waivers from provisions of the federal "No Child Left Behind" statutes that conflict with Indiana school accountability provisions if the U.S. Department of Education allows states to seek waivers. Allows a school corporation to use federal funds to support ongoing training and professional development to meet the requirements of federal statutes including providing study materials, preparatory classes, and review workshops at no cost to the paraprofessional.
