The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and the School Paraprofessional Advisory Council have established the Anne Marie Murphy Paraeducator of the Year Program, to recognize the important role of the paraeducator in supporting student achievement. Superintendents and school district administrators are invited to nominate one paraeducator who has demonstrated exceptional skill and dedication in the performance of his/her job. Identification of the 2015 paraeducator of the year will be made at a ceremony held on November 6, 2014. The 2015 paraeducator will serve for the 2015 calendar year. In addition, each district paraeducator nominated for the 2015 paraeducator of the year award, will be individually recognized at the November ceremony.
The 2015 Anne Marie Murphy Paraeducator of the Year application packets must be received by the CSDE no later than June 6, 2014. To review the full application packet with comprehensive instructions, please visit: www.ct.gov/sde/para-cali.
