We have a wonderful opportunity to strengthen ourselves as an association this year, and here are some ways you can help! We understand that not everyone has lots of time to give, so some of these are smaller time commitments. We hope you will consider participating in your union in one of the following ways. We will be asking for volunteers later in the Summer.
Building Representative: each building needs at least 2 members to attend monthly BEA meetings to represent his/her building, bring concerns and questions from the building, and report back to the building members. Meetings occur on the last Monday of every month, August through April (excluding December) from 3:45-5:00 PM in rotating buildings.
Partnership Council: each building needs at least 1 member to attend Partnership Council Meetings to represent his/her building, bring concerns and questions from the building, and report back to building members. At Partnership Council, all district administrators are present. It is a forum to resolve and improve matters before they become highly problematic. Meetings occur on the second Thursday of September, October, January, March, and May from 4:00-5:00 PM in the Cassingham Complex Community Room.
School Board Screening Committee: We need about a dozen members, at least 1 from each building, to participate this Fall by interviewing the candidates who will be running for three seats (four year terms) on the Bexley City School District Board of Education. Committee members will work together to create questions, conduct interviews, and share the written results of the interviews with BEA members. This will probably only require a total of two meetings–one meeting to prepare and one meeting to conduct the interviews, on a weeknight in September or October.
