Paraprofessionals & School-Related Personnel (PSRP)
AFT Connecticut represents thousands of school-related personnel (PSRP) in local and regional districts across the state. PSRPs work as paraprofessionals, teaching assistants, tutors, secretaries, school nurses, custodians and others who provide critical services that support student learning. From contract negotiations to professional development, AFT Connecticut works to secure the pay, benefits, conditions and respect they deserve as both professionals and “the engine that keeps their schools running.”
Watch and share this video of Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s ceremonial signing of legislation in 2012 that expanded the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to cover more PSRPs in Connecticut.
