Paraprofessional Welcome

Welcome! As you begin your role with Mankato Area Public Schools, there are a number of Professional Development sessions that are required prior to first stepping into your new position. We have streamlined these sessions in an online format and hope you find them both informational and engaging. These should not take more than four hours. All trainings are housed in a system called Infinitec which allows you to watch a video and take a quiz to demonstrate learning. You must pass the quiz in order to get credit for the training.
