An update was added to the FAQ page to include information about notifying the district about absences as our human resources manager notified us a few months ago.
Here is some information to any members who want to make Professional Development requests.
- Be specific about the workshop title
- May want to include a brief overview of workshop—to show how it relates to your field
- You may be asked to turn-key the information
- If you have many PD hours it may be asked if a colleague could go instead

BEA members are being urged to be very careful about what is emailed using your district email. The district can and does monitor emails and can take action to anyone who semds questionable material. In particular, be careful about sending opinions about union or district decisions or issues. That is something to be taken up in a face-to-face meeting with your building’s ARs. Also, please do not send any personal material, pictures, or humerous email if you would not want administration reading it.
Also, district ARs should be holding face to face 10 minute meetings to update members about what is happening in our Executive meetings. If you are not being informed, talk to your building’s ARs. If you do not know who to talk to, please email me through the contact link on this website. I will be more than happy to help you out. Further, our BEA executive meeting’s minutes are taken and posted under the Member’s tabs as soon as it is approved in one of our meetings. Thus, January’s meeting minutes will be posted soon, and any minutes older than that since last June should be already there.
