Part of classified employees appreciation week

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - From scrubbing toilets to making lunch, Bakersfield City School District Administrators and board members are getting a taste of someone else's job.

Nearly 60 administrators and board members are spending the week alongside classified employees to witness first-hand the hard work they do to take care of students every day.

It's part of the Classified Employee Appreciation Week.

"It's pretty good that they are doing this. That way whoever comes to shadow us will know exactly what we do each day. We have things going on and we don't really have time to sit around and look at the clock," said food service worker Kathy Bello.

"It's very interesting so far and it's a lot more challenging than I thought it would be," said BCSD board member Bill McDougle.

Not only is it an eye opening experience for administrators and board members, it's also a chance for workers to be appreciated.

"I have the utmost respect for what they do. This is an important part of the team. I think they're doing a great job," said Director of Instructional Support Services Randall Ranes.

"I think they will appreciate us more and know we do hard work for kids," said Bello.
