Classified School Employee Week celebrates the support
staff and paraprofessionals who help our early childhood centers,
schools, and colleges succeed. Classified
employees perform essential work, but it is often
behind the scenes. This is our week to put classified work front
Classified School Employee Week is celebrated in the third
full week in May of each year, Sunday through Saturday.
California classified employees and support staff have known
and loved this AFT professional issues conference for more than
40 years. And COVID-19 isn’t stopping the tradition. AFT PSRPs
across the nation will be meeting virtually to share best
practices, tactics and strategies for organizing, and the
camaraderie and “can do” PSRP spirit.
At our Classified Conference this fall, you can look forward to a typical pre-pandemic-style line-up of events with plenary sessions, meal events, workshops, and social events. The theme of our conference is “Classified Professionals — The Heart of Education.”
You can look forward to workshops on topics such as technology in the workplace, support for special education, personnel commissions, self care for personal health and welfare, social justice and diversity, and labor history.
