The Dubuque Community School District is fortunate to have the dedicated service of over 400 staff members who serve students as paraprofessionals.

“Paras,” as they are commonly referred to, work under the guidance of teachers and administrators to support learning and safety for students at all levels. They are a valuable part of the district’s educational programs and they directly benefit the students and families we serve in countless ways.
