03-12-12: Classified School Employee Week is March 12-16

The Puyallup School Board has declared March 12-16 as Classified School Employee Week.

The recognition coincides with Gov. Chris Gregoire's proclamation honoring classified employees this week statewide.

The Puyallup School Board presented bargaining unit representatives with copies of the district's proclamation at its February 13 board meeting.

Classified employees are involved in nearly every aspect of education, including maintaining school buildings and school grounds; providing secretarial and clerical assistance; preparing and serving meals; providing safe transportation; keeping school facilities clean; assisting in the classroom; providing a secure environment; and offering many other specialized services.
