The Los Angeles Board of Education recently issued a resolution recognizing its administrative professionals for their work coordinating schools and offices.
“Administrative professionals are so excellent that we sometimes take for granted all that they do until they are out for a day or two,” LAUSD Board president Steve Zimmer said. “They are essential here at L.A. Unified.”
Board vice president Dr. George McKenna described the importance of administrative professionals.
“It takes a strong team to excel, and that certainly includes the support and efficiency of administrative professionals and employees who are in clerical positions,” he added. “I am proud to say thank you.”
Educational office professionals are the first contact with the public, whether in person, on the phone or online. Their work requires advanced knowledge that includes expertise in communications, computer software, office technology, project management, customer service and office management.
Administrative Professionals Week is April 24-30, and Wednesday, April 27 is Administrative Professionals Day.
“Anyone who has worked at a school site knows the essential role of administrative professionals in ensuring that our schools operate effectively and efficiently,” LAUSD Board member Monica Ratliff said.
“I am excited that all of us at L.A. Unified will be celebrating and thanking our administrative colleagues for their hard work and dedication to our students, families, staff and community.”
