Education Support Professionals

Every day, Education Support Professionals (ESP) take care of our children and ensure that they have everything they need to succeed.

ESPs members participate in their annual conference.

Education Support Professionals (ESP) are the backbone of our schools. They ensure that students are well fed, transport them to and from school, and give them the individual attention they need in the classroom. Many of them live in the communities of the schools for which they work! They are represented by nine career families: Clerical services, Custodial and maintenance services, Food services, Health and student services, Paraeducators, Security services, Skilled trades, Technical services, and Transportation services.
