Education Support Professionals Week

March 13-17, 2023 is Education Support Professionals Week (formerly Classified Week), a tradition started in 1975 by PSE to recognize the contributions of Education Support Professionals in the public school system. It is a statewide celebration to recognize ESPs for the difference they make in our schools and universities, and let them know what it means to belong in a union.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate:

Order special diamond pens and diamond sticky note pads as gifts to give to chapter members! You can either print out and mail in an order form, or download and email to

Finally, you can also nominate an outstanding coworker or fellow member for a PSE Award! CLICK HERE to submit a nomination, and visit the Awards page for more information on the categories.

Please submit your nominations by March 31st, 2023!

Let us know how your chapter is celebrating! Contact Travis Tingvall, Political/Communications Specialist, at
