Congress to Consider Two ESP Bills
Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) have introduced the National Classified School Employee of the Year Award Act (S. 547/H.R. 1704). This important legislation would provide long overdue recognition for education support professionals – including paraeducators, clerical assistants, school bus drivers, custodians, food service workers, technicians, custodians, school nurses, and security professionals – for their outstanding contributions to our nation’s schools and the students they serve. As an integral part of the public education system, classified school employees promote student achievement, ensure student safety and contribute to the establishment and promotion of a positive instructional environment.
Take action today – Tell Congress to support the National Classified School Employee of the Year Award Act.
