Office and Clerical Services

Office and Clerical Services

The technology keeps changing, but secretaries are still the people who keep our schools running smoothly. The same holds true for all administrative support staff, whether they work the front desk at an elementary school or manage files at the county office.

Classified employees in the office do just about everything. They maintain attendance records, answer the phones, pay the bills and communicate with parents and administrators—all while keeping pace with advances in computer, telephone and document reproduction technology.

The accounting staff crunches the numbers, and school secretaries help students with their medications. Whether they are registering thousands of students at a large community college or explaining the afternoon bus route to the parent of a first-grader, office workers are vital to the success of our schools.

What we do:
