Teaching is THE Priority!
The vote to ratify the Tentative Agreement into the Collective Bargaining Agreement of 2016-17, passed by 84% of those who voted. There is some language that will impact your collaboration time, in some cases, but we are working closely with the district to make sure it is implemented in the most efficient way.
Our Communications Committee is making sure that DSTA is communicating in a 21st Century way (and saving trees and members' dues dollars) using electronic communications as much as possible. It is imperative that we have your personal email address as we are contractually forbidden to send bargaining information to you on the district email. (Send the info to DSTACommunications@gmail.com) You don't want to miss out on important information the site visits that DSTA Leadership will be conducting in the month of September.
If you're not on the DSTA Facebook page it is a good source of information. We encourage everyone to "like" this page along with the Mona Davidson DSTA President; and the parent page Community Supporting Desert Sands Teachers. These also have up to the moment information. For all your tweeters out there, follow @DSTAUnion on Twitter.
YOUR VOICE, OUR UNION, OUR FUTURE!
