Features and Profiles
Caring about the well-being and success of students
Besides performing jobs that are essential to education, classified school employees also make students feel secure and provide the guidance and reassurance to help them thrive.
Chapters, districts build understanding through job shadowing program
For the fourth year running, CSEA members and district administrators shared experiences and built understanding through the Appreciating Classified Employees (ACE) program. The program is held in selected chapters and school districts statewide during Classified School Employee Week.
Training invigorates chapter
Members of Esparto Chapter 510 didn’t know how powerful their influence could be, even though there are 36 of them. Through CSEA’s training programs, they discovered that even a small chapter can have a big influence.
Parking officer helps others
Patricia Carver, a parking enforcement officer at Shasta College and a member of Shasta College Chapter 381, is always ready to help.
Professionals on the job
Students arrive safely at school, lights turn on when a switch is flipped, a nutritious lunch is served to hungry kids, computers transmit important information across a school district, and cool air comes out of vents during late spring days.
Community benefits from members’ team outreach program
CSEA members are known for taking an active role in their communities, but for members of ALACO Chapter 615, it’s a group effort.
There’s a rule on John “Orlando” Sanchez’s bus—you’ve got to smile when you get on.

Paraeducators are key to student achievement
Paraeducators are key members of the teaching team; the backbone, heart and soul of the school.
