CSEA Paraeducator Conference
Date & Time
March 10, 2022
CSEA is celebrating and hosting the 25th Annual Paraeducator Conference. For the health and safety of our members, this event is being moved to a virtual platform. CSEA reached a record number of paraeducators at our first virtual conference in 2021, and we look forward to bringing more important trainings that can be viewed both live and on demand.
The registration fee is $149 per CSEA member if registered by January 14 and the fee goes up to $199 thereafter. Registration is open to CSEA members only and closes on January 28. Individuals and small groups paying by credit card can register online. Large groups or groups paying by check or purchase order should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with registration.
Educator Effectiveness Block Grant
As part of the 2021-22 State Budget, school districts have been provided with paraeducator training funds via this grant. Inquire with your District, Chapter President or CSEA Labor Representative regarding this new funding source.
Member Reimbursement Subsidy
Members attending the Paraeducator Conference can apply for a CSEA Member Reimbursement Subsidy to cover the registration fee. Applications are accepted no more than 60 days prior to the event start date (January 6) and no later than 15 days after the event (March 24) and are approved on a first come, first serve basis as long as budget funds last. This year there are additional funds available for this subsidy and we encourage all that want to attend to apply. Once your application is approved, funds will be disbursed upon proof of attendance at the event (attendance does not need to be during the actual event date/hours as content will be available on demand). Note: Members who are receiving district or chapter funds to attend are not eligible for this subsidy.
Special Accommodation Requests
Advanced notice is required for us to accommodate attendees with disabilities. Please submit your request no later than February 1, 2022 by contacting Travel/Event Coordinator, Rosalinda Cardenas-Vega, at email@example.com or (408) 433-1240.
