Recognizing Achievement in Classified School Employees Act

Title

Recognizing Achievement in Classified School Employees Act

Description

The Recognizing Achievement in Classified School Employees Act (H.R. 276) was a piece of legislature, sponsored by Representative Dina Titus of Nevada, that passed through Congress and was signed into law in April of 2019. The bill instructs the Secretary of Education to create an annual Recognizing Inspiring School Employees, or RISE, award to celebrate the service of non-educators in public schools throughout the country. This award is presented to a multitude of specialties within educational institutions including clerical, nutrition, transportation, and custodial fields. Commendation of public education is largely, and understandably, focused on teachers. This bill aimed to hold up those in education that serve the students in other ways. Each employee in public education has a role in the growth and success of the next generation and the RISE award seeks to highlight those that are often overlooked.
