Value Us.  Respect Us.  Negotiate with Us.   Our message to the YCUSD Board and District administration.

YCTA has been listening.  Our members want to be valued and respected.  We need to provide the District with a clear concrete picture that illustrates what it looks like when we are valued and respected as professional educators.  Your impressions, experiences, and stories will provide those details.   

Please take the time to complete your YELLOW"YCTA Respect Assessment".I have attached a copy for your convenience as well.

We want to compile these stories and tell a bigger picture. We want to provide feedback to administrators and the school board. 

Return the yellow forms to your site rep.  TALK to each other.  What actions make us feel valued and respected and what actions undermine that?

We, YCTA educators, conduct research about teaching and learning nearly every day.  Our research involves continual data collection, analysis and research-based decisions for our students.  Do you feel valued and respected as a highly trained, well educated, and experienced professional?  You should.  You bring so much to our students everyday.  You make a difference in the lives of children bringing all of that expertise but also a great deal of caring and commitment to kids and a better tomorrow that education promises.  Help us bring forth the message.  Help us build a picture of respect and value for the work of educators.

Thank you for taking the time to return your YELLOW forms.

Watch for the WEAR RED message for next Thursday.
