We Bring It! Every Day!

CSEW 2022
May 11, 2022

Each May, California salutes the important contributions of classified school employees during Classified School Employee Week (CSEW). This year we are celebrating the theme, "We are Classified! We Bring it Every Day!"

We are essential. We’re united. And we’re strong.

Online and on-campus, we’re behind the scenes, on the front lines, in the classroom.

We make it happen, for our teachers/academic staff, administrators, students, and communities.

From the first day of preschool, to the last day of community college, with an associate’s degree in hand, we keep California education moving forward.

Our patience has been tested. We’ve remained resilient. We’ve fallen down and helped each other stand up. And yet, we continue to face challenges unlike anything we’ve seen in our lifetimes.

But we will face them, together. With a smile, some courage, and a shoulder to lean on. We bring ourselves, our talents, and our passion to our schools, community colleges, county offices of education, and the public. Our work is more important now than ever to keep our students learning and work towards a kinder future.

We are everyday superheroes to our students. We build connections and inspire lives in our communities. We get it done.

There is no pandemic, billionaire, or politician that will stop us from improving the lives of our members, students, and community.

During the week of May 15-21, we will celebrate the various job classifications in our district by wearing colors to signify the job families.
