Welcome to the
Barrington Education Association website
At our first meeting of the year, the BEA Board of Directors voted unanimously to support the Referendum question that residents will be voting on in March 2020. Details on how members can get involved and how they plan to canvas or drum up support for passage of the referendum will be forthcoming. The financial impact of a failed referendum may be felt by all.
ELECTIONS ON DECEMBER 6 - Take the time to vote for representatives to the IEA-RA in March. In addition, thank those folks you see on the ballot for taking the time to represent you!
BEST WORKPLACE - We believe that the reason Barrington 220 recently earned the #21 spot in best workplaces in Chicagoland is because of the BEA’s efforts to maintain positive working conditions through our negotiated contract and the work we do on an ongoing basis. This is an addition to the overall positive relationship we have with our administration the Board of Education. We have a seat at the table and we don’t sit there silently. That said, check below for a climate survey that the IEA is currently hosting and please take the time to fill it out.
WELL-BEING SURVEY - The IEA is currently holding a survey on the overall well-being of its members. Please take a moment to fill out this survey. The purpose is to gather information on how the climate and culture of your workplace affects your life. Responses are confidential.
Click here to take the survey before December 1.
ISBE ASSESSMENT SURVEY - The ISBE is currently conducting a survey that gathers info on how to improve the state’s existing assessment delivery system. State Supt. Carmen Ayala said that they are desiring “an equitable student assessment system aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards that offers educators quick and frequent access to results that can be used to target instruction to student needs during the same year of testing.” They want educators to weigh in. Take the survey before Dec. 6 here.
COMMUNITY ALLY link is open! Last summer, at the NEA-RA in Houston, delegates voted to approve an ally membership. This $25 membership will allow allies to be a part of the NEA and to be part of the growing movement of educators, parents and neighbors who are standing up for the schools our students deserve.
