The Governor has proclaimed this week, March 11-15, as Education Support Professionals Week in Washington State. Please join the District in recognizing the many important contributions that classified public school employees provide each day to our schools, students and staff.

 

Classified employees include: food service staff; bus drivers, mechanics and transportation office staff; custodial, grounds, maintenance and warehouse staff; technology and data support staff; school and district office secretaries and receptionists; paraeducators and reading specialists; health room and safety assistants; business office and human resources staff; and other essential specialized positions that support students, staff and school operations.
