2023 CSEY Nominees for State RecognitionPLEASANT HILL, Calif.—Seven classified school employees were recognized for their support of students and schools in Contra Costa County at a reception held on Thursday, April 20, 2023.

The seven were selected from 17 nominees from school districts throughout the county and will now represent Contra Costa County in the State of California Classified School Employees of the Year (CSEY) program.

The 2023 Contra Costa County Classified Employees of the Year are:

Lauren Buck, a cafeteria supervisor at the Knightsen Elementary School District;

Janna Evans, a lead adult re-entry transition specialist at the Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE);

Robert Luis, an instructional assistant at CCCOE;

Jay Morrow, a network systems administrator at Mt. Diablo Unified School District;

Joe Malley, maintenance/craftsperson at Lafayette School District;

Christopher Raymundo, a district fiscal advisor at CCCOE; and

Ronald Rivett, a bus driver at MDUSD

“Congratulations to Contra Costa County’s Classified School Employees of the Year,” County Superintendent of Schools Lynn Mackey said. “From school bus drivers to cafeteria workers to instructional aides, these employees play key roles in creating a school environment that promotes student achievement, safety, and health. It takes a village to run a school and classified employees are the backbone of our school communities.”

Classified employees are those in positions that do not require an academic certification. The winners each represent one of seven categories. The categories are Clerical and Administrative Services, Custodial and Maintenance, Food and Nutrition Services, Health and Student services, Transportation Services, Paraprofessional Services and Technical Services.

The CSEY program highlights the contributions of exemplary school employees that support and play a key role in promoting student achievement, safety, and health in California public schools, from preschool through 12th grade.

Classified employees will also be recognized during Classified School Employee Week, observed the week of May 21-27.
