Attract, Prepare, Retain Program

Three Bethel Park School District paraprofessionals are taking advantage of a collaborative grant between the school district, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and Slippery Rock University called Attract-Prepare-Retain (APR). 

As part of the program, the aspiring teachers will earn their Master's degrees in Special Education with little to no tuition costs.

We applaud Wendy Shah (Ben Franklin), Nichole Ragnelli (Memorial), and Erika Steers (Abraham Lincoln) as they each further their education in working with our special education population.
