Happy ESP Day to all of the support professionals!

flyer We celebrate National Educational Support Professionals Day every year on the Wednesday during American Education Week, falling on November 16 this year. The National Education Association Representative Assembly established this day to honor the education support professionals who work day in and day out for public schools’ well-being and effective functioning. These professionals also play a vital role in forming a healthy community as they help students inside and outside the classroom. There are nine services under the Education Support Professionals umbrella, including clerical, custodial and maintenance, food, health and student, para-educators, security, skilled trades, technical, and transportation services. Everyone does their part to support the students of Burke County and the school system couldn't run as smoothly as it does without them!
