2018 Classified School Employee of the Year Program

The Monterey County Office of Education is pleased to invite school districts to participate in the MCOE 2018 Classified School Employee of the Year Program to recognize and honor classified employees throughout Monterey County.

Classified School Employee of the Year Program

Classified employees play vital roles in the education of students and are integral to public education. The CSEYP highlights the contributions of classified school employees who support the education of California’s public school students in preschool through grade 12.

There are six categories of classified employees who will be recognized in both the Monterey County and State recognition programs.

District may nominate one employee for each category. Categories include: Child Nutrition; Maintenance, Operations and Facilities; Office and Technical; Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance; Support Services and Security; and Transportation. We look forward to receiving one nomination per category for each district!

Selection Process

Each participating school district and charter school conducts its own local Classified School Employee of the Year Program, following its own internal process, and forwards nominees to the MCOE 2018 Classified Employee of the Year Program. MCOE will conduct a selection process, and all nominees will be honored locally at a spring event. Six exemplary classified school employees throughout Monterey County will move forward for consideration in the California Department of Education’s Classified School Employee of the Year Program.

Submissions should be sent to Cindy Altemeyer, Senior Director - Human Resources, via email to or regular mail to P.O. Box 80851, Salinas, CA 93912.

The deadline for Classified Employee of the Year is February 23, 2018
