Everyday Heroes

Classified school employees are heroes every day in the way they approach life and the people around them, in how they internalize their job and life responsibilities, and in their compassion toward the most vulnerable members of our communities.

Members help a community heal

Members from throughout the state joined together in Weed in early August to revitalize a playground at Weed Elementary School. Member volunteers—27 in all—from Weed, Mt. Shasta, Doris, Sacramento, Redding, Happy Camp, and even as far as Orange County painted the Peaceful Playground.

Bus driver of the year

It takes nerves of steel and the patience of a saint to drive a school bus. Monterey COE Chapter 35 member Greg Perez was lauded for both and more when he was named the 2015 California Highway Patrol Bus Driver of the Year.

Dedicated to student safety

Classified employees perform the widest variety of jobs of any group of school workers. But while job classifications may call for us to drive students to school, feed them, maintain their campuses and help them learn, all classified employees have one job in common: looking out for the well-being of students.
