National Education Support Professionals Day
The Okaloosa County School Board has issued a proclamation declaring Wednesday, November 17th as National Education Support Professionals Day and urges all employees and the entire community to join in this observance by expressing grateful appreciation to the education support professionals for their commitment and dedication to the school system.
Educational Support Professionals are an integral part of the education process as they work tirelessly to serve our children and communities with care and professionalism. On a daily basis, our Educational Support Professionals take great pride in using their numerous skills which are rooted in human relations, communications, verbal presentation, technical knowledge, use of resources, and positive personality traits. The Educational Support Professionals in our School District are to be commended for the professional manner in which they perform their duties; they put forth effort, individually and collectively, to assure that our educational system will continue to have prosperity and success.
