• ZED is a ParaPro test center and schedules assessments by appointment only. Please call 507-775-2037 to schedule a ParaPro test at the ZED District Office (801 Frontage Road NW, Byron).  A ParaPro test is timed with a limit of 2.5 hours.

    The ParaPro test does cost $55 for each applicant. ZED waives that fee for candidates newly hired for the 2018-2019 school year in our seven member districts. Candidates outside of our seven member districts, as well as, current paras in our seven member districts, need to pay the $55 fee and can make a check out to "Zumbro Education District" prior to testing. ZED only pays the $55 for one attempt per new hire applicant in our seven member districts.

    '18-'19 Test Dates (Call the ZED Office (507-775-2037) to schedule)
