Additionally on Tuesday May 28th from 3 to 5pm, the CEA office we will hold a question and answer session for any member who has questions. We know it’s a quick turnaround, but we need to get the ballots back by the 30th of May.
Thank you once again for all you do. We look forward to seeing you on May 31st at Michaels for our recognition dinner.
SB 441 did not pass. Now Senator Calderon wants to bring it up again!! It would INVOLVE PARENTS IN TEACHER EVALUATION, establish a rating system that could not be bargained and INCLUDE TEST SCORES AS PART OF THE EVALUATION! Tell your Senator – No No No!!
