2020-2021 WEA Eastern Community Outreach Grants are here!

The formal application window has closed for 2021/2022 CVEA positions and 2020 WEA Rep Assembly Delegates.

Should someone wish to add their name to the race, there will be a chance to nominate yourself from the floor (or from your computer😀, at our General Membership meeting December 15, 2020 at 3:45 just prior to our Rep Council meeting at 4:00.

There was only one contested race in the election process, and that was for our Elementary Board Member-At-Large position.  This run-off will occur in January and be overseen by WEA using BallotPoint, an elections application.  Bios of the candidates will be sent out prior to this election.

As is our process, uncontested races can be voted in by acclamation by Rep Council on December 15th should there be no further nominations from the floor.

So, here is what you can look forward to very soon....

President Wally Watson will be sending an election flyer with candidates running unopposed who will be voted in December 15th.

Prior to the January election, bios of the two Elementary Board Member-At-Large candidates will be sent out.

Bargaining 2020-2021

The Team of 12 will prioritize proposals received last year prior to rolling the contract over for an additional year. You will have a chance to bring up new concerns in the spring. 


Professional Development Clock Hours
If you have taken professional development classes through CVSD, you must go into HRM+ and fill out the evaluation within 30 days of the completion of the class or course. Failure to do this will result in the loss of those clock hours with no chance to recover them.

Good idea to review those building files!  

It's a good practice to review your building file at least once a year to ensure that the information in it is accurate, up- to-date, and relevant to your current assignment.

For those of you who have been with the district for many years, your building file (defined as supervisory or working file in the CBA) has the potential of containing very old information that may not be particularly helpful to have around. For example, a complaint letter from one disgruntled parent 5 years ago is not likely to be reflective of your career accomplishments, so it would make sense to remove it.
