2013 ESP Day Printables

Hand Out Cards, Posters and Coloring Book

Education Support Professionals (ESPs) ensure and promote school safety in our schools every day.

ESP job families include:

  • Clerical Services
  • Custodial and Maintenance Services
  • Food Services
  • Health and Student Services
  • Paraeducators
  • Security Services
  • Skilled Trades
  • Technical Services
  • Transportation Services

ESPs make up nearly 40% of the school workforce. They work together daily with teachers and administrators to create and maintain schools as safe and supportive learning environments. They are the superheroes, the unsung heroes who meet the needs of the whole student — physical, mental, emotional, and social.

The National Education Association's ESP School Superheroes campaign materials below, serve to inform on the critical roles ESPs play to foster safe, functional and effective education environments for America's students.
