Classified Employees of the Month
Kristin Green, School Secretary, and Eilene Williams, Registrar, were nominated as a team by Principal Mike Borgaard, Ed.D., for their contributions to the Juvenile Court Schools Program of the Sacramento County Office of Education. Ms. Green and Ms. Williams are key to the success of the daily operations of El Centro Jr./Sr. High School, which is located within Sacramento County Youth Detention Facility (also known as Juvenile Hall). They support the El Centro instructional program by helping facilitate communication between Sacramento County Probation staff and school staff, and ensuring meticulous record keeping. The latter is a challenge due to the transient school nature of Juvenile Court School student placements. With a school program that is open 244 days a year, and that enrolls and dis-enrolls over 2,500 students each year, school staff rely upon Ms. Green and Ms. Williams for their respective abilities to coordinate multiple tasks while maintaining a positive attitude. Their many contributions enable school staff to better serve the high-risk student population at El Centro Jr./Sr. High School. Ms. Green has been employed by the Sacramento County Office of Education since January 2008. Ms. Williams has been a Sacramento County Office of Education employee since May 2007.
