District U46 Education Assistants

Welcome to DUEA Know!

We've established www.dueaknow.com to keep our membership informed. No more waiting for flyers and newsletters! We will be updating the site regularly, so check it anytime.
If you are new to DUEA, or have yet to be trained, we highly encourage you to sign up for the CPI class being offered this Friday the 27th at Streamwood HS. It will give you a great foundation on how to de-escalate situations as well as how to approach students in conflict. Register in Courseware.


This is not a workday for paras, but you can be paid for your time by turning in a professional growth form. Hope to see some of you there


The following is great for new DUEA members and those who need a refresher. You can be paid for your time by turning in a professional growth form. DUEA board members will be there before and after the session to answer any questions you have.
They will be wearing DUEA aqua shirts.
