WELCOME to JCEA!
Taking the lead to get real results for students
JCEA is both a professional association and an advocacy organization. Representing approximately 5,500 non-administrative professional educators working in the Jefferson County School District, JCEA is affiliated with the 40,000 member Colorado Education Association (CEA) and the 3.2 million member National Education Association (NEA).
Our mission is to empower educators to advocate for professional rights, responsibilities and practices to achieve educational excellence within a changing society.
Slow Night at the BoE
Last night’s BoE meeting was mostly uneventful and, after honors and recognition, poorly attended. Even the media table, occupied for the last two years, was vacant.
Managing Holiday Stress
The holiday season is upon us. For some of us this can bring a sense of looming stress. This time of year can be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy time with family and friends; however most of us also feel a high level of stress during the holiday season. Finances and budgeting, hectic schedules and unmet expectations can all add to the stress.
VICTORY: Organized People BEAT Organized Money Every Time
We are educators because we are passionate about the students that are in our schools every day. When we come together with one voice, as the Jefferson County Education Association, we are powerful protectors of our students and our classrooms – and we can support each other as we work to improve our profession and our teaching practice. On Tuesday, two years of hard work of thousands of JCEA members, educators, parents, students, and community members paid off in a historic victory for our students, our profession, and public education.
