Great news! With a vote of 387-19, the House overwhelmingly passed HR276, a bill to honor education support professionals (ESP), who play an essential role in keeping students safe, challenged, engaged, supported, and healthy in our public schools and communities.
HR276 would create the RISE Award, an annual recognition through the Dep. of Ed that would put a national spotlight on the commitment and professionalism of ESP careers.
A huge thank you to @repdinatitus & @RepSusieLee for championing this bill. We’ve worked with fellow labor organizations and unions on this legislation for many years. While this is a victory, we’ll continue to see this journey through until this bill becomes law. #WeLoveOurESP
