You’re Invited!!!

Your Advocacy Council would like to invite you to share your concerns “in person.”  As budget and staffing teams are gearing up for their annual process, we're hoping to have some input. We are hosting two opportunities via Zoom to gather and talk with other elementary specialists to find out what is working and what is not. Both meetings are open to PE, music and library specialists….choose whichever date works best with your schedule. Click below to join the Zoom.

There will be doorprizes!
Topics of discussion will include
  • Logistics of teaching hybrid sections
  • Schedules
  • Waivers
  • One Job, One Educator
  • Formula for deployment
  • Deployment before contract signing
  • Equity issues for staff and students
If you have other topics for discussion, please email them to
by February 6.
