Please help us to make that happen by clicking this, and completing the survey. It will take about five minutes and we want to hear what you have to say.
Both of the classes will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 pm at Jepson Middle School.
Bullying remains a serious issue in our schools and community and has a big impact on school safety and student learning. One out of four teens are bullied and nine out of ten GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender) Youth experience harassment at school and online. On the playground, a child is bullied every seven minutes, with little peer or adult intervention (11% and 4% respectively). The vast majority of instances of bullying receive no intervention (85%).

We invite you to explore how to make our schools and classes and lunchrooms and the wider community a safer place that respects all our students and adults.
Registration is open now. All workshops will be held in the library at Willis Jepson Middle School. Please email email@example.com to register for any of the workshops.

Would you like to see first hand how issues in education across the country are addressed through the democratic process of the National Education Association- Representative Assembly (NEA-RA)? Then get on the ballot to be a local delegate for the NEA-RA.
This year, it is in Atlanta, Georgia, July 2-6. VTA will reimburse you for all the upfront travel, lodging, food, and registration costs you will incur if you are selected and attend as a delegate. To get your name on the ballot, email Bob Blaine (Will C. Wood) with a 25 word candidate statement by Friday, March 1st. The election for NEA-RA local and the state delegates will be held at sites from March 5th – March 14th.
The links below have more details about the NEA-RA, or you can contact Alyson Brauning (Jepson) to learn more about the role/experience of a delegate.
VTA will sunshine articles for the 13-14 contract on march 21st at the school board meeting. Your bargaining team is hard at work developing language to propose to the district.
