ESM SRP is The Union of the 'School Related Professionals', who work in health service, transportation, clerical and technical fields, as well as the classroom - make vital contributions to education.

 


The Role of Today's School-Related Professional. School-Related Professionals serve the education community in many capacities. The following composite descriptions are drawn from definitions found in Civil Service Law, local contract language and from the practical experience of NYSUT's SRP members.

Teacher Aide/Monitor (Civil Service Law) The teacher aide is a non-instructional school employee. Teacher aides (sometimes referred to as paraprofessionals) provide non-teaching services such as assisting students with behavior or physical needs, grading papers and proctoring exams under the supervision of the building principal.
Teaching Assistant (State Education Law)
The teaching assistant provides direct instructional support to students under the general supervision of a certified teacher. The teaching assistant works as a member of a team in the classroom where the teacher has ultimate responsibility for developing and planning the education program. Teaching assistants (also referred to as paraprofessionals) work with individual or groups of students.

School Nurse (Civil Service Law) Registered professional school nurses provide care to the students and staff and act as a community resource. They maintain records documenting the children's health. They assess for medical, emotional, social and family problems; screen for vision, hearing and scoliosis, medicate as ordered; coordinate services in emergencies; address the needs of the medically fragile child; assess students for substance ingestion; arrange school physical exams and prepare referrals and reports to other agencies.

Secretary/Clerk (Civil Service Law) The secretary/clerk provides direct or indirect services to students, school personnel and parents. Secretary and clerk duties vary depending upon their civil service job classification.

Custodian/Cleaner (Civil Service Law) The school custodian/cleaner maintains the facility. He or she takes care of and oversees the maintenance and cleanliness of the building and grounds and frequently deals directly with the staff and students. The custodian's and cleaner's duties vary depending upon civil service job classification.

Bus Driver/Bus Monitor (Civil Service Law) Bus driver/bus monitors are in charge of the safety and well-being of the children, as well as the vehicle itself as they transport students to and from school. Their duties vary depending upon their civil service job classification.

Food Service (Civil Service Law) Food service personnel work directly and indirectly with the staff and students. They maintain the kitchen and food supplies and inventory and order supplies and food that they also prepare, serve and sell. The food service supervisor and helper duties vary depending upon their civil service job classification.
Security (Civil Service Law)
Security personnel help provide a safe environment for students and staff at our schools. They work in and outside the buildings during the school day, after school and at evening functions, as directed.

 

❗️Announcement❗️

Can you handle the truth?

It’s coming down to the wire. This month, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule in a case that could seriously undermine public-sector unions like ours. This case ― Janus v. AFSCME ― is funded by wealthy special interests who have been fighting to destroy your ability to collectively bargain for fair wages, good benefits and a secure retirement for decades.

These are the same forces that tried to push a New York Constitutional Convention down our throats last year.

Spread the truth about how the wealthy elites are using Janus v. AFSCME to attack working Americans! Watch and share this video.

This video from the Smithtown Teachers’ Association lays out exactly why there is so much at stake for so many workers across our nation, and underscores why we must band together to fight for what is right.

Spread the truth about how the wealthy elites are using Janus v. AFSCME to attack working Americans! Watch and share this video.

Our movement is too important for us to stand back and let our enemies win.  Now, more than ever, it is critical for us to stick with our union.

In solidarity,

Andrew Pallotta
NYSUT President
