July 7th David Cuestas, Teresa Segler, Sharon Vega, Simone Zulu, George Melendez, Marty Meeden, and I represented California and our chapter in Orlando, Florida. The NEA/RA is the largest congressional group in the world. Over 8,0. The two biggest business items that dominated the assembly were: NBI B dealt with institutionalized racism.
NEA took at unanimous stand against institutionalized racism. “We, the members of the National Education Association, acknowledge the existence in our country of institutional racism–the societal patterns and practices that have the net effect of imposing oppressive conditions and denying rights, opportunity, and equality based upon race. This inequity manifests itself in our schools and in the conditions our students face in their communities. In order to address institutional racism, the National Education Association …” NEA also adopted a NBI 1.
Confederate Flag.“The NEA RA directs the NEA to support, in ways it finds appropriate and effective, efforts to remove the Confederate battle flag from public schools and public spaces.” In total we voted and debated on over 1.

Vice- President, David Cuestas and I attend CTA’s President’s Conference. We attended workshops to enhance our leadership skills but most importantly, we took training to engage our members and community. The idea of a PETA strategy plan emerged during this training. We were also able to see a great presentation on the State Budget which looks even better for public education. PETA Leadership Retreat July 2. The leadership team and a selected number of representatives from our association met at the CTA office to develop a mission statement and strategic plan for our association. PETA also will consider reorganizing. This will be presented at rep. This is an essential change to PETA given the threat of Friedrichs v.
CTA court case (see information below and follow the link.)

Local Report: Grievance Pre- grievance: I am currently working on one pre- grievance resolution with the district. Psychologist outside our district were contracted out to do summer school and summer evaluations. Our psychologist must have priority to these jobs since they are now “union” jobs.

NO Sneak a Peek in our contract “Sneak- a- Peek” is not a contractual obligation. If any school was required to hold any type of “sneak- a- peek” must let me know a.
We are not required to open our classrooms to parents and hold mini- conferences before the beginning of the school year. This also adds pressure to colleagues who took their well- deserved vacation and were not able to set up their classrooms. I’ve sent an email to the district to cease and desist this practice. If the district and our association are interested in doing this type of event, it must be negotiated and calendared for uniformity around sites and the district. Administration Changes. Cabinet The district promoted Elena Esquer to Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum. I believe this is a great selection. I worked with Elena at Los Amigos and know that she treats everyone with respect and dignity. No one has been hired for the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources. Interviews were held but no one was hired. The position is being flown again.
Local Politics: Five candidates have pulled and filed papers to run for school board: Sharon Vega, Dennis Trujillo, Bo Bynum, Dave Markov, and Vajezatha Payne. Our endorsed candidates are Sharon Vega and Dennis Trujillo. Our campaign will go into full force after Labor Day. Candidates for Palmdale Water Board are seeking PETA’s endorsement. Marco Henriquez wants to address our next rep. August. IBEW would like PETA to support their candidates: Gloria Dizmang and Kathy Mac Laren. I will give Gloria and Kathy the same opportunity. State: Budget Governor Jerry Brown signed the new state budget on June 2. He and California state lawmakers had agreed on a preliminary budget deal a week prior, on June 1.
For education, the new budget includes $6. The final budget is very close in content to the revised state budget proposal released on May 1.
Gov. Brown allocated billions more for schools. The $1. 69- billion overall spending plan, which is $4 billion larger than the one Brown proposed in January, gives schools and community colleges $6. The plan sets the stage to begin to restore critical student programs, and provides crucial support to ensure that there is a qualified teacher in every classroom. Students, schools and colleges are owed billions because of the recession and the Proposition 9. The revised budget proposal includes repayment of the debt, pointing public education toward the road to recovery. In keeping with the promise of Proposition 3.
California's students. The new budget took effect July 1. Friedrichs v. CTA was filed on April 3. Santa Ana, and seeks to overturn agency fees as an unconstitutional violation of non- members’ First Amendment rights. The suit also contends that it is unconstitutional for the unions to require non- members to “opt out” of supporting non- chargeable expenditures.
The U. S. Supreme Court has decided to hear this case during the 2. June 2. 01. 6. Follow this link for more information. Issues- and- Action/Ongoing- Issues/Friedrichs.
Conferences and Grants We have quite a few conferences around the corner. Many of them have minority incentive grants. I’ve attached that information. If you are interested in any of the conferences, please let me know. If you are interested in one of the incentive grants also let me know before you apply. I will not say “no” but it is a requirement that I am aware of the application. Have a great week. Respectfully,Hugo Estrada to download the Bonnie K Williams Scholarship Application. Applications are due by 2: 3. April 2. 4, 2. 01. Stephen Squire at Ocotillo Elementary School. Hello everyone and Happy New Year!
I hope all of you had a restful winter break and are ready to continue a very exciting year. I want to start off with some great news. Simone Zulu, one of our negotiators, was selected as Head Start Teacher of the Year. We must all be very proud of her for representing our district and our association so well. We have more great news.
This time it comes from the state. Governor Brown recently released his Proposed State Budget and it brings great news for Public Education. It actually includes a COLA adjustment. I have created links below so you can see the highlights of the State Budget and recommendations from CTA for negotiations. The best news I can share about this budget is that it is increasing per pupil funding.
This is a great for our district given that we have a high population that fall under all the categories within the Local Control Funding Formula. This is all due to our efforts to pass proposition 3.
I can't thank you enough for supporting our campaigning efforts. They are paying off. I hope all of you are adjusting well to the new schedules. Our goal was to create time for planning and collaboration.
Remember that 2 out of the for PLC hours are specifically designated for planning and collaborating. Thank you for everything you do and for your continued support for our association.
Have a great 2. 01.
