Education Support Professionals
Education support professional (ESP) members are an important part of Iowa’s public education team. They include school secretaries, paraprofessionals, custodial staff, food service workers, and bus drivers. Without ESP members, kids wouldn’t get extra help and attention, the bell wouldn’t ring, the busses wouldn’t run, and the schools wouldn’t be safe and clean. Nationwide, ESP members number one-half million and growing, making up more than 40 percent of the total K-12 education workforce. ESP members are critically important to the school community.
