Becoming a part of our team, means you have access to an array of development opportunities, on-the-job training, one-on-one coaching, mentoring, and leadership programs that are designed to help our team members – both campus-based and support staff – to grow professionally.
To meet Highly Qualified status from the Texas Education Agency (TEA), you will need to provide a college transcript confirming a minimum of 48 completed hours when applying for a position. You may complete the Irving ISD Paraprofessional Assessment in lieu of college hours, if recommended for a position with Irving ISD.
Once recommended for a Paraprofessional position, candidates will apply for the Paraprofessional Certificate from the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Fees for the Educational Aide are paid by the candidate and candidates must reapply with Texas Education Agency (TEA) every two years. In addition to the certificate, all recommended candidates will need to pay the $49 fee for digital fingerprints to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and Morpho Trust.
We offer many opportunities in areas such as:
- Instructional Aides

**For these positions, digital fingerprints completed with Morpho Trust or IdentGo and a Paraprofessional Certificate issued from Texas Education Agency (TEA) are required.**
