Resolution No. 17-13 CLASSIFIED SCHOOL EMPLOYEE WEEK

Whereas, the California State Legislature adopted a resolution in 1986 declaring the third full week of May of each year as Classified School Employee Week recognizing the many outstanding contributions and services provided by classified school employees; and,

Whereas, many classified school employees serve as paraprofessionals in classrooms providing direct assistance to teachers and giving students the individual attention and the support needed to succeed academically; and,

Whereas, other classified school employees perform essential clerical and office support functions at district offices and school sites creating a smooth-operating educational environment; and,

Whereas, a number of classified school employees perform custodial and grounds keeping services ensuring the school buildings and surrounding areas are clean, safe, and well-maintained for the students and, thus, protect the public’s investment in our school facilities; and,

Whereas, many other classified school employees serve as nutrition service workers furnishing students with nutritional meals and snacks enabling them to focus their attention on learning; and,

Whereas, a large group of classified school employees provide transportation services bringing students safely to and from school and other school related activities; and now, therefore, be it

Resolved, that the Board of Trustees of the Oxnard Union High School District hereby recognizes May 21 through May 27, 2017, as Classified School Employee Week and honors the classified school employees of the District for their many contributions to our educational community and commends them for their shared “Commitment to Quality Education for All.”

Adopted this 24th day of May, 2017

By consensus of the Oxnard Union High School District Governing Board and Superintendent.

Signature of President of the Board, Beatriz R. Herrera & Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Penelope DeLeon for Resolution No. 17-13
