This day is a staff development and clerical day for teachers and support staff.

He also is provided an office and support staff at A-B's St. Louis headquarters.

Are support staff paid staff or are they be unpaid volunteers?

Thanks.

They're probably paid.
It doesn't actually say - it's not a question of grammar or vocabulary, but the support staff in all schools I know of (laboratory assistants, cooks, cleaners, librarians, etc) are paid.

In the context of a staff development day I would imagine the "support staff" of teachers being referred to are the T.A.s (Teaching Assistants) who also are paid staff.

I think if there was going to be any event where volunteers are going to be on hand that would specified "...a clerical day for teachers, support staff and volunteers."

"Teachers and other staff will be on hand, while volunteer support staff will also help answer your questions." etc.

Support Staff are any people whose job in support on the company's work. Support Personel would be Receptionists, Accounting Personnel, Facilities Maintenance and IT Support usually paid but they can be volunteers.
