    Partnership with Administration and Labor

    Classified Employee Summer Assistance Program
    The Classified Employee Summer Assistance Program is a state-funded program that provides eligible classified employees up to a dollar-for-dollar match on the contributions an employee makes during the school year. Employee contributions plus state matched funds are then distributed in the summer when employees who work less than 12 months do not usually receive a paycheck.

    The Classified Employee Summer Assistance Program first began for the 2019-2020 school year. As a result of surplus funds from the state for this particular program, the program has been extended once again for the 2020-2021 school year.

    The application period for this program is typically in February. Current OVSD classified employees should monitor their district issued email addresses since Human Resources will send out updates on the program via email.

    Classified Employee Grant Program
    The Classified Employee Grant Program provides approximately $3,000 per year to select applicants who plan to earn, or who are currently in the process of earning, a teaching credential. The Classified Employee Grant Program is a result of state funding and collaborative efforts between the Orange County Department of Education, Butte County Office of Education, Imperial County Office of Education and the San Diego Office of Education.

    Individuals are required to submit an application to be considered for the program. Our last application period was in December 2019. Application periods typically occur in the late fall and late spring depending on available funding.

    Current OVSD Classified Employees should monitor their district issued email address since Human Resources will send out update on the program via email.
