SAN JOSE, CA – On Wednesday, May 6, 2020, Santa Clara County Board of Education unanimously approved and signed a resolution formally recognizing the week of May 17-23, 2020, as classified employee week. The California Legislature has named the third full week of May as Classified School Employee Week for their contributions made to students and learning institutions.
Classified employees are the employees that do not hold a teaching and/or administrative credential. They make up a significant percentage of the workforce at the county office of education and are critical to the support of the functions and services of the county office. The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) acknowledges that every aspect of a student’s day, from start to finish, is impacted by classified school employees.
Santa Clara County Superintendent, Dr. Mary Ann Dewan offered high praise for the County office of Education’s classified employees, “This week, we celebrate Classified Employees Week. Classified employees are integral to our mission, and their service emulates our values on a daily basis through their hard work. They develop and support many of the operations and programs that are essential to ensuring our processes are streamlined and efficient. Without their support, we could not continue to provide a high caliber of service to our districts, students and community.”
