The ParaPro test does cost $55 for each applicant. ZED waives that fee for candidates newly hired for the 2021-2022 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.
The ParaPro testing will resume in September-dates TBD
