About SRP Recognition Day

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.

Congratulations to all the locals that entered NYSUT's contest sharing the ways SRP Recognition Day 2012 was celebrated. We received several great submissions making it very difficult to choose winners - but choose we did. Be sure to submit for this year's contest!
