President's Message

October 2018

Welcome Back

Wow temperatures are fluctuating, trees are losing their leaves, conferencing is over for most elementary schools and middle school report card prep is starting! It must be fall.

This year I have continued school visits to talk to teachers, answer questions and listen to concerns. I am also meeting with the administrators at the district office to advocate for our members rights.

Please remember to Vote November 6th. CTA is endorsing Tony Thurman for State Superintendent of Public Instruction and Gavin Newsom for Governor. CEA is endorsing Lori Cunningham for CUSD School Board. Please spread the word about the importance of supporting these candidates.

We will have our monthly Representative Assembly on October 29th. These meetings are open to everyone so if you are interested please come on by. Otherwise get your questions/concerns to your Site Representative so that they may bring them to the meeting.

Interestingly, CEA did not have a contract to begin with. We fought for one. Not until the 60’s did teachers have:

½ hour lunch - duty free

Professional growth increments


CEA continues to work for you and your rights. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns!


Kai K. Brown,

President Cupertino Education Association
