2018 ESP Regional Meeting Series

Advocating for ESP Safety and Voice

Training Description: 
Education Support Professionals (ESPs) across the state deal with workplace injuries and other safety concerns each time they walk through the doors of a school. Their role in supporting students with behavior and/or mental health challenges is critical to the success of those students, and to the overall educational ecosystem in a school. And yet, ESPs also report a persistent lack of respect for what they do each day. 

This training will provide skills and strategies for education support professionals to advocate for safer working conditions while continuing to meet the growing and changing needs of students—focusing specifically on positioning ESPs as a critical voice in educating the whole child. 

This training is offered FREE to full members of Education Minnesota.

Dinner will be provided, and attendees will receive 1.5 hours of professional development. Certificates of Participation will be provided upon completion of the training. All full members will be invited via postcard and email to register online for the training they wish to attend.
