Certification Cohorts

The Grow Our Own (GOO) Paraeducator Program targets current paraeducators who are eligible and interested in transitioning into a teaching career with Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS).  GOO Programs will offer paraeducators various opportunities to complete MSDE certification requirements.  The first stage of this strategic initiative focuses on paraeducators who hold a bachelor's and/or master's degree and are ready to enter the classroom as Conditional teachers.  BCPS has partnered with four local institutions to offer certification cohort programs which include the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), Goucher College, Notre Dame University of Maryland and Stevenson University.
