The board expects staff members to maintain high standards in their school relationships. The
district needs the services of individuals with integrity, high ideals and a high degree of human
understanding. Staff members shall:
1. Recognize the basic dignities of all individuals interacting with just and courteous
relationships with students, staff members, parents and the community.
2. Be accountable for using current scientific knowledge and the maintenance of efficiency in
the development in their field of work. Subject matter should be presented in a fair and
accurate manner.
3. Conduct all school business with properly designated school authorities.
4. Maintain accountability in all professional duties avoiding the acceptance of anything of
substantial value offered by another which might or might not appear to influence one's
judgment or performance of duties.
5. Accurately represent professional qualifications.
6. Recognize that appointments and promotions shall be solely on merit. The use of pressure
for appointments or promotions on school officials is unethical.
7. Make any criticism of another staff member, department, or any phase of a school or its
programs directly to the administrator holding the responsibility for improving the situation.

8. Provide students the opportunity for individual action in the pursuit of learning and access

professional purpose or is required by law.

Mandatory abuse reporting law:

By law, mandatory reporters must report suspected abuse or neglect of a
child regardless of whether or not the knowledge of the abuse was gained in
the reporters official capacity. In other words, the mandatory reporting of
abuse or neglect of children is a 24-hour obligation. An example of a
mandatory reporter is a teacher or school official.

PARA Educator Scope of practice

As per discussion with one of the teachers aides that I work with in
my practicum education is not a must for aides in the West Linn/Wilsonville
School District as it is in some school districts such as Sherwood. The
responsibilities for instructional assistants include one on one training as in
the case of helping someone to read or feeding and working with Nathan,
assisting students as they are part of a regular inclusion classroom, and
observing the behavior of children with disabilities. The para educator will

also help the teacher in any capacity that the teacher may request. For
instance, in my classroom sometimes the teacher has to be gone for a while
(called to the office, meeting), and the teachers aides lead the class in
Calendar (sing-along) activities. The aides will fill the role of the teacher
until the teacher returns.
