President's Message    



A HUGE thanks to all our educators - teachers, special education professionals, and support providers -  for your time and effort to make sure our voices are heard by the School Board and District this year!  Your School Board Actions of emails and speaking at board meetings has helped the Board understand the realities of our classrooms and caseloads which keep us from reaching all of our students needs, and from being able to retain and attract the best educators, like all of you!   

In Solidarity and Appreciation,

Kate Lee, CEA President

Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).

Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.  Read more...


Generally a grievance is a violation of a specific provision of the contract, past practice, written policy or settlement agreement.  

Your union contract provides a mechanism for you to make sure your employer abides by the contract. That mechanism is the grievance procedure (Article 10). When an employer violates a provision of the contract, union members have a right to file a grievance.
