A Personal Care Assistant is a Paraprofessional whose role is to increase the quality of education by assisting one particular student with instructional and non-instructional activities. Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) are not responsible for the design, direction or evaluation of the teaching/learning process. Because the PCA is assisting one particular student, regular attendance is required to fulfill the duties of this position. A Personal Care Assistant may be used in any instructional situation under the direct, immediate supervision of a certified professional to perform those tasks specified in the job description. The role of the assistant varies according to the program assignment. Usually, duties will vary from program to program.
