    The Los Angeles Unified School District Paraeducator

    Career Ladder Programs



    The LAUSD Paraeducator Career Ladder was established to provide opportunities for advancement through career development. The goal of the Career Ladder is to support paraeducators and other classified employees in their pursuit of careers in teaching and school nursing. We recognize that many of the paraeducators who support students and teachers in classrooms throughout the District have experience in the communities they serve. We also know this to be true of our classified employees who support teaching and learning indirectly through various non-classroom roles.

    Career Ladder Programs are designed to:

    • Respond to teaching and school nursing shortages
    • Diversify the teaching and school nursing professions
    • Support continuing education towards certification
    • Improve instructional and health care services in schools


    Career Ladder Programs offer financial assistance, individualized mentorship, professional guidance, and test preparation for those in a teaching pathway program.
