In a typical year, classified employees are recognized as integral to the success of students and public education. From transporting and feeding students to teaching them vital skills and ensuring that schools are operating smoothly, classified employees have earned respect as educators and partners in the education community.
This year, however, classified employees have stepped up to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and proven to be essential workers serving our students and schools like never before.
Custodial staff have kept our campuses safe and clean. Food service workers have prepared meals for students and families in need of food. Bus drivers have delivered meals to students. Instructional assistants are supporting students as they overcome the challenges of distance learning.
No matter what their role is, classified employees ARE essential workers!
