It’s Back To School Time!
It’s time to gear up for another school year! Every year brings new changes to the faculty, staff, and facilities. We get the chance to meet and enlighten a new group of students. It’s also a chance to get to know your LTEA Building Representatives and Association Representatives. In addition it is a great time to read your LTEA/LTSD Contract Book. Inside that book is everything you need to know about the basics of your job. Even if you have been in the district for 20 years, some of the language changes can alter how you are expected to fulfill your part of the contract. While reading the contract, please note anything that you might want changed in the next contract. Jot it down and save it. If you are doing your job and you notice something that should be clarified through language, please notate it. As you find these items ask your colleagues what they think. Your opinion really does matter when the LTEA goes back to the negotiations table.
The LTEA and NJEA also have some wonderful workshops that will be presented throughout the year. There is an LGBTQ+ Mini Conference, Winter Leadership Conference as well the NJEA Conference where you can meet peers from neighboring districts. You can get to know your own LTEA members at our General Membership meetings. Don’t forget to use your NJEA Member Benefits to save all year long!
Please make sure to explore all of this website, sign-up with Remind for your LTEA Building news, and stay informed by signing up for the LTEA Closed Facebook Group. Have a great year and we look forward to working with all of you!
