Employee Health Benefits are provided by YABC.net

Last year we were tasked with creating a district wide wellness initiative that promotes increased fitness and health among employees and students, campus safety overall, communication goals, conserve resources and that explores district mental health service needs.

The work group broke the initiative down into steps and Employee Wellness was the first area chosen. We sent out a Wellness survey to all our employees in the spring and 168 employees responded.

The “You Make a Difference” Red Plate Recognition Program

Gregorio Briones

Gregorio Briones is one of the great members we have in the custodial department. In the time I have spent working by his side, I have come to really admire him. He always has a positive and hardworking attitude despite having to be at work at 2:00 am every day. He also works hard every single day. His determination really comes through when he also attends school after work to create a better future for himself. I thank you for always being a pleasure to work with.
