Jacqui Greadington, EOEA President
NJEA has initiated a statewide majority petition to build support for our campaign to achieve legislative health benefits relief and job security. It will used as a statewide tool to demonstrate the power of our union. We need over 100,000 signatures. EVERY LOCAL ASSOCIATION MATTERS! EVERY SIGNATURE COUNTS!
If you have not signed the petition, please see your rep immediately. I ask EOEA to REPRESENT on this issue.
CURRICULUM GUIDES/ MATERIALS/RESOURCES/ EXPIRED TEXTBOOK SUBSCRIPTIONS:
The EOEA has requested that curriculum guides be printed and numbered. There is no table of contents for these 700-800-page documents. Where pages are numbered, they are out of order. It is very tedious and time consuming to navigate through these documents. It was also requested that they be divided into sections.
Several teachers have asked about Journeys materials. There is also concern with not being able to access all Journeys resources online,for example, the online projectiles, consumables, assessments, etc. Some teachers don’t have the necessary number of text books. I have emailed Dr. Walker regarding these specific matters and await her response.
Middle school teachers state that some materials they access online have expired. There is no access to online assessments for ELA. It was explained that the price quote is extremely high.
Please know that we continue to advocate for your professional rights. Thanks for keeping us informed.
COMMON PLANNING TIME:
Common planning time is one of the district’s non-negotiables. Please contact the office if your school does not provided time for common planning.
