Every student deserves to reach their fullest potential. That’s why our highly qualified and experienced #ParasWhoCare are fighting for changes that will better support Mounds View students and our community.
Paraeducators’ work is essential to the District. One recent study found that over 62% of instructional time in special education classrooms was with paras—not teachers. And as paras assist the students with the highest needs, teachers are freed up to work with other students.

We are a member-elected paraeducator bargaining team representing almost four hundred paraeducators in the Mounds View School District, ISD 621.
Behind every student is a #ParaWhoCares.
Every day paraeducators help ensure Minnesota students can reach their full potential. But right now these same paras aren't getting the respect and support they need. That's why paras across Minnesota are uniting to win the schools our families deserve.
