ESPs play an important role in our schools and are an integral piece of the education team and in the lives of students both inside and outside of the classroom. ESPs keep our schools running and our students safe, healthy, and ready to learn every day. They are professionals who deserve respect and protection from furloughs. If your first priority is students, then put students first by not cutting ESPs. An investment in your ESPs is an investment in each of your student's futures.
