Classified Employee Appreciation Week May 17-23

CSEA banner.jpg

The truth is simple:  without huge contributions from a variety of classified employees, school districts could not function.  This week, the state dedicates the week of May 17-23, to the roughly 215,000-plus members who make up the California School Employees Association (CSEA). 

Founded in 1927, CSEA is recognized as the largest classified school employee union in the nation.  From food service, to transportation, maintenance, clerical, security and a number of other highly valuable positions, CSEA members perform a wide range of vital services in public schools state-wide. 

Former California Governor Ronald Reagan first proclaimed Classified School Employee Week in 1969.  At that time, Reagan said: “The classified employee is proud of his/her status and integral part he/she plays in the total field of education throughout the State of California.”

Take a moment to show your appreciation for OUSD classified employees and the contributions they make on behalf of all students and families in Oceanside!

Biliteracy Leadership Award Presented to Reynolds School Principal

Gina 1.jpgThirty-six area biliteracy leaders, including OUSD’s Gina Zyburt, were honored last week by the County Office of Education for their work promoting biliteracy programs.  Zyburt, principal of Reynolds Elementary School, helped establish the site’s Dual Language program in 2013, one of about 80 such programs available to students county-wide. 

“The purpose of the awards program is to promote biliteracy as an educational tool,” said Nenette Adelson-Rodriguez, director of Instructional Innovation for the county.  “Biliteracy means students are provided access to a rigorous curriculum that results in proficiency in two languages.”

During the 17th Annual Symposium, 36 leaders from 20 districts in San Diego County were honored for their work.
