SBESA Mission and Purpose

SBESA’s purpose is to promote a continuous program of professional growth for the educational support staff, to provide the opportunity for the sharing of ideas while maintaining an efficient and professional environment, to support the educational goals of our students, schools and community in our service to this district.

Note from the SBESA President

As another school year begins, I want to express my sincere gratitude to each one of you.  You all could be working somewhere else, but you have chosen to be where you are today. 

My theme for this year is “Inspire to be Inspired.” What does that mean, you may ask?  I think that we inspire in things we do every day, intentionally or unintentionally, so when we do that, then we become inspired or inspire others to continue to push forward and not give up.

I wish you all a wonderful school year full of Inspirations!
