Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! Your return to a post-pandemic school system is a testament to your personal and professional resilience, and we are thankful for your continued commitment to the students and schools in our community.
We are living in an unpredictable time. The pandemic has, and will continue to present additional challenges for us. As educators in our schools we are at the center of it all while serving our student’s needs. Some of us are struggling to cope ourselves. It is critical not only to practice intentional self-care but also to be aware of the toll on your mental health. ACT is here for you. As you start this new school year, visit CTA’s new online wellness center for tips and resources on how to take care of you and your students’ mental health.
Rest assured that during the COVID crisis, the representatives and leaders of The Associated Chaffey Teachers have continued to work throughout the pandemic to ensure students and members return to schools and worksites that prioritize the health and safety of all. Thanks to this advocacy, and in conjunction with the guidelines from the State and County we will continue to work with the District to provide you with what you will need to remain safe.
It’s because of educators like you who worked together in this difficult time and decided to make a difference that we have weathered a very difficult storm. We will face further challenges as we continue to differentiate our instructional delivery models in the post-pandemic period. We will continue to meet those challenges because we are stronger together.
The Associated Chaffey Teachers will continue in partnership with CTA and NEA to advocate for a quality public education for every student. Our mission to protect and promote California’s public schools has never been more important!
As we start this year, your ACT Leadership Team wants to thank you again for your commitment to your union, your profession, and the students we all serve.
