Education Support Professionals – Bonus and Report


In order to implement the education support professional bonus program as adopted in Senate Bill 831 of 2022, LEAs are required to provide the MSDE with a current number of noncertificated education support professionals by submitting this form and providing, for each eligible employee, the employee’s first name, last name, job title, job classification, email address and bargaining unit to the program contact. LEAs should provide this information via Smartsheet.

Customer Service Support Sessions

The MSDE will hold two customer service support sessions for LEAs. During these sessions, MSDE personnel will review the Smartsheet form submission process and answer any LEA questions about the program or process. See the dates and times below:

  • Wednesday, October 26, 2022, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, November 1, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
