  • New York School Support Staff

School-Related Professionals are the backbone of our public schools. These unsung heroes ensure the health, safety and security of our children, yet they face many challenges in the workplace. They need our support.

Issues Affecting School Staff

School Violence

Workplace Violence

Violence in school settings is an increasingly visible element in our state’s education system. Too many school facilities contain real hazards to the health and safety of teachers, school-related professionals and students.

School Bus Stop Violations

Careless drivers pass school buses stopped with their red lights flashing more than 50,000 times a day in New York State.

School Bus Monitors

School Bus Attendants

We expect drivers to not only drive safely but also to monitor our children on the bus and during crossings. It's neither reasonable nor fair to expect a driver to do all of these things. 

Due Process for School Workers

Fair Due Process

Civil Service law needs to change to ensure fair due process hearings for school staff employees.

School Staff Stories

These are the people we rely upon to ensure the health and safety of our children on the way to and from school and during every school day. These are their stories. 

Deb Paulin

SCHOOL BUS DRIVER

"As a mother and grandmother — and one who loves the kids under my care — it makes me sick when drivers illegally pass school buses."



Mark Warner

Teaching Assistant

"The ones where I had to go in and protect someone else could have been prevented with training and a better understanding of trauma."
