7/14/21 – AR Updates!

1. JULY 26th! JCEA Ratification vote open NOW through July 26th at 5:00 pm

Hi folks,

There was a typo in the follow up email that went out yesterday, whoops! The ratification vote is open until JULY 26th at 5:00 pm. We will continue to outreach members to encourage them to vote but any email/texting/social media/ in-person reminders you can do to members in your building and across the district is incredibly helpful to increase participation.

If you or any member you speak to did not receive the email that included the digital ballot and summary of proposed changes please contact Callie Orgeron for a replacement ballot. corgeron@coloradoea.org.

2. 2021 AR Kickoff

We are SO excited to see all of our ARs/AACs/Co-ARs and activists in person for AR kickoff on August 9th. If you haven’t yet, please RSVP HERE. We are prepping materials, swag and space and need an accurate headcount. Even if you know you have a scheduling conflict, please fill out the form and mark that you cannot attend so we can proactively work with that group to pick a make-up date. RSVP HERE.

There are substantial changes (currently being voted upon) to your contract from the last bargaining season and we want to make sure you all have all the tools you need to uphold the new language. We also have 3 seats (a majority) up for election on our school board this fall and will be gearing up for that work.

3. Volunteer for a shift to welcome new educators August 4th, 5th, 6th

Hundreds of new educators will be joining the Jeffco team this year and nothing is more powerful that a warm welcome into our district and our union from people like YOU!

Sign up for a couple of hours to join fellow JCEA members to start the year strong – it’s an easy, fun, social way to support building the strength of your union. Sign up here today!
