BRAWLEY — The Brawley Elementary School District kicked off Classified Staff Appreciation week Monday as the district was selected to participate in a state-wide, special event day known as the ACE program. This is the first state invitation for the district, and was one of only four districts chosen.

The Ace Program allows Brawley Elementary District Administrators to walk in the shoes of district classified employees, to better know, and understand what they do everyday.

BESD administrators shadowed classified employees for a portion of their workday, and got into the classified work action as well. With administrators working on all job fronts, including janitorial, secretarial, and in the cafeteria during lunch, it was an overall fun, new experience for both classified and administrative employees.

“”It was a good experience getting to know what the staff in the cafeteria do every day,” said Brawley Elementary School District Human Resource Manager Lourdes Ayon, who worked in the J.W. Oakley School cafeteria for the day.

“It was really a sign of appreciation for what they do, we had a great time,” added Ayon.
