SRP Recognition Day

SRP Recognition Day

Are you ready to rock?!

SRP Recognition Day is Nov. 16, 2021, in New York State. It is a well-deserved honor for the hard-working women and men who help educate, feed and transport students, monitor their health, administer school offices, and maintain school facilities — providing a safe and nurturing environment for student-centered learning. We honor the super heroes of our schools. SRPs Rock!

Did you know that New York State SRP Recognition Day is the direct result of advocacy by NYSUT members? NYSUT-backed legislation, made possible through the extensive lobbying by NYSUT staff and members, resulted in a permanent SRP Recognition Day in New York. It is celebrated annually on the third Tuesday in November. This year's Nov. 16 date falls within American Education Week, Nov. 15–19, and many locals can use this opportunity to incorporate an SRP celebration into other events planned for the week.

You can download celebration materials on this page to print on your own.

Local presidents may login to request SRP poster sets and "SRPs Rock" pins for the SRPs in their locals. Presidents login and access required.







These downloadable posters are available in two versions: one that includes a space to add your building rep's name, and one without.  (Note: Both files come with male and female versions of the poster.)
