Message from the Webmaster

Good evening, folks

When we were making this site, we forgot to convert all of the documents we were going to add into PDF files, an oversight which is being corrected over the next few days.

So, if there’s a few documents you can’t quite read because they’re in a format which doesn’t work for your computer, please be patient, we ought to have all of them fixed very soon.

Sorry for the oversight.  🙂

CTA wants your input – it takes five minutes

Strategic Long-Term Planning The California Teachers Association has embarked upon a strategic planning process, at the direction of its State Council of Education, and under the guidance of the Labor Education and Research Center (LERC) at the University of Oregon. This strategic planning process—entitled “Your Voice. Our Union. Our Future.”—is about the future of CTA.

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.

Thank you.

Upcoming March workshops

Check out  our upcoming March workshops.


The workshops:

  • Bullying interventions – Thursday, March 7th
  • Creating a Safe Space for GLBT Youth – Thursday, March 21st


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%). SOURCE: Youth Violence Project, Curry School of Education

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 to register for any of the workshops.
