In Honor of Classified Employees
May 15 - 21, 2016
It is an honor to join with groups across the state this week to recognize the contributions of classified employees. For 30 years (since 1986) during the month of May, the state of California has formally recognized the important work of classified staff.
Every classified staff member throughout Paradise Unified School District contributes directly or indirectly to the education, growth, and development of students of all ages in our community. As a result of the work they do, our students and families are attended to, welcomed, fed, nurtured, and transported to safe and clean places of learning. Thanks to classified employees, our District schools and departments work smoothly and effectively.
