About SRP Recognition Day

SRP Recognition Day acknowledges the contributions of School-Related Professionals in helping to educate the whole student. NYSUT's 90,000 SRP members perform a variety of key roles in schools, working as bus drivers, school nurses, custodians, secretaries, food service workers, teaching assistants and aides and in dozens of other job titles. Officially established as law in 2007, SRP Recognition Day falls on the third Tuesday of each November, often during American Education Week.

Celebration Packets: NYSUT Leaders may log in to request celebration packets. NYSUT will send out celebration packets that include: a celebration guide, poster and “SRPs Essential to Education” buttons. Order by Nov. 1 to guarantee delivery by Nov. 17.
