The Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) in collaboration with the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Contra Costa Charters from Region 6 co-hosted the 3rd Annual Classified School Employee of the Year (CSEY) reception on Thursday, May 23, 2013. Nominees from two participating school districts and seven nominees from the CCCOE were honored at a reception to celebrate this honorable recognition. Of the nine nominees, two were selected as Contra Costa Classified School Employees of the Year: Kelly Laidley, Office and Technical Category (CCCOE) and Lynette Martelle, Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance Category (CCCOE).

Deputy Superintendent Karen Sakata and ACSA's Region 6 Executive Bob Giannini expressed heartfelt appreciation for the hard work that classified employees perform behind the scenes and in the classroom for the students of Contra Costa County. “Whether you are a custodian or a school administrative assistant, a paraprofessional or an instructional assistant, you all have a tremendous impact on the lives of students,” Karen Sakata said.
