School-Related employees play a crucial role in the overall functioning of a school. They are the backbone of the educational institution, providing essential support and services that contribute to its success. From administrative staff managing paperwork and logistics to custodians maintaining a clean and safe environment, these employees ensure the school runs smoothly. School nurses and counselors play a vital role in students’ physical and emotional well-being, providing guidance and care to promote a healthy and positive learning experience. Without these employees’ dedication and hard work, a school’s ability to create a conducive learning environment and foster academic growth would be greatly compromised. In essence, school-related employees are the unsung heroes who help shape the future of our students and the success of our educational institutions.
