Fridays with Ben: You serve as a lifeline

Every day, you, our classified employees, are making a difference for the six million students you serve across the state of California. Even though school sites are currently closed, this tireless dedication continues because many families need our support. You serve as a lifeline, providing the daily meals they have become reliant on, technology that allows them to stay connected to their teachers and classmates, and campuses clean and safe in preparation for a time when they can return to a new normal. It has been a pleasure to recognize this work during Classified School Employee Week, which is one of the topics I talk about in this week’s video.
