This week is an important milestone for all of us who work with our Clerical staff; it is Administrative Professionals Week across the county.
As we say thank you and congratulations to our 52 Administrative Professionals here at District 287, it is important to point out their important role in short and long term activities. Last week, Dr. Jane Holmberg, Exec. Director-Teaching & Learning, shared the important role our clerical play in making things happen.
“Our clerical support is vital to our being able to accomplish all our district goals,” said Jane. “I can’t think of one significant promise (read more)
we have made to staff, students, or member districts that somehow doesn’t involve the clerical staff in our being able to fulfill it. I am grateful every day for their contributions.”
Public Relations Liaison, Linda Rees, asked some of our leaders about the role of the clerical staff in the success of their programs. Here is a sampling of their comments:
Sandy Gaulke, Manager-SIS: “I have the privilege to work with many Administrative Professionals in my department and around the district. I am so appreciative of their attention to detail, stick-to-itiveness, and dedication to their jobs and this district. Each one brings a unique skill set and together make a great supportive team."
Jody Delau, Principal-West Education Center: “Our program has high performing administrative professionals. Not only do they go above and beyond professionally, they also are a delight to work with."
Chad Maxa, Director-Information Services: “There are no words to express how valuable our clerical are to District 287. Their ability to tackle large volumes of work while managing a tremendous amount of detail is astounding.”
Judi-Mari Ringe, Supervisor - Northwest Tech Center: “Clerical staff set an important positive professional tone for customer service with staff and public. They take care of a multitude of details so staff can have time and be successful with students. They work to keep pace with being innovative to make our operations efficient!”
Ginny Nyhus, Assistant Supervisor-Care & Treatment: “Administrative support is integral to the operations of Care and Treatment programs. Our support staff act in multiple roles to support multiple programs each with a different flair. All of the staff appreciates their dedication to the programs, the support they provide and the diligence they exhibit with regularity.”
Linda Oberg, Coordinator-Social Emotional Learning: “Our SEL clerical support is always welcoming, efficient and does things in such a quiet confident manner that you hardly know she worked on a very complex problem and it’s DONE! I know when I ask her for help I will get the right answer to my sometimes confusing question! She is an absolute lifesaver for me.“
Thank you Administrative Professionals, for all you do to support the work our staff does with our students and their families! Collapse this story
