Gwinnett County Public Schools is struggling to hire paraprofessionals, who are critical to helping many special-needs students.


The district hired 400 paraprofessionals this year, but it’s not enough, officials said. So the district’s board of education recently decided to contract with a third-party vendor — ESS ― to fill more than 130 vacancies.

“We hear the need and we feel the sense of urgency, and to date everything that we’ve tried has not yielded the results that we desire,” said Monica Batiste, associate superintendent for human resources.
