School Committee Reaches Agreement with Paraprofessionals

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Staff,

The Brookline School Committee is pleased to have reached an agreement with our paraprofessionals that provides for a $1.25 per hour increase in their wages. We have tremendous respect for our paraprofessionals and know that they are integral to our schools’ efforts to meet the needs of many of our most vulnerable students. The School Committee values the work they do each day with our students. This new agreement puts the wages for paraprofessionals in Brookline among the highest in the state and will improve recruitment and retention of paraprofessionals in the district.

Sincerely,

Julie Schreiner-Oldham
Chair
Brookline School Committee
