Welcome Back To School 2020/2021

We hope that everyone is doing well and have had time to relax over this crazy summer. There are a few matters that we would like to inform everyone about as we are heading into this new school year.

  1. Membership cards are usually mailed to the TTEA Secretary to hand out to site reps for distribution. This year membership cards will be included with your California Educator magazine--Sept. edition. If you do not receive your card in that publication, please email Erin LeFevers at emlefevers@gmail.com and she will be able to order one for you.

  2. Please make sure to reread and adhere to the MOU about distance learning. If there is anything happening at your site that seems to be in direct violation of the MOU, please contact your site rep and Jess DeLallo.

  3. There is a lot of speculation floating around about since Placer County has been removed from the Governor’s Watchlist that we could go back to an in-person school model. The Board decision on August 5th, states that we will start in DL and it will be reassessed at the end of Sept. Please watch your personal emails for updates from the Bargaining Team and the E-Board.

  4. Last year, teachers were given time in August to go over their benefits and Escape portal information (this is your paystubs, etc). This year, we do not have this time. Please make sure to visit the TTEA website for links to Escape Portal and other CTA/NEA benefits links. The most important is for you to make sure that you have beneficiaries stated and that you take a moment to organize your CTA?NEA information to help your family in case something happens to you. TTEA website and CTA

  5. CTA.org also has a number of free PD/Webinars as well as a number of other helpful articles to aid teachers with teaching not only distantly but also in person. It is well worth time spent on CTA’s website.

Enjoy your school year! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask your site rep or email the Executive Board:
