Jeffco Education Support Professionals Association (CSEA)

JESPA works collectively to educate, unify, and advocate for the Education Support Professionals of Jeffco Public Schools.

The Classified School Employees Association is the sole and exclusive bargaining agent for all Classified Employees.

Each year, the CSEA Negotiation Team meets with the Jeffco Schools Negotiation Team to discuss issues of relevance to Classified Employees.  

The team members work together through a collaborative, interest-based collective bargaining process to find ways improve the working environment for all classified employees and the learning environment for all students.

Once a tentative agreement has been established, the changes are presented to the members of CSEA for ratification.  

The ratified tentative agreement is then presented to the Jeffco School Board for adoption.

Please see members only section for more information and ways to participate in negotiations.
