Education Support Professionals Week

March 13 through the 17 is Education Support Professionals Week! Education support professionals (ESPs) are crucial team members ensuring students get a quality education. They support school functionality, classroom learning, health and wellness, maintaining our schools and more. They are our bus drivers, secretaries, technology team, custodial and maintenance staff, paraeducators, food service, and security service. We appreciate all of our education support professionals for all that they do everyday for our schools and students!

Each day this week on social media, we will be highlighting some of our amazing ESPs.
