Two interactive, town-hall discussions for educators

Sign up for the Education Nation Town Hall – let your voice be heard Sunday

We hope you will join the live Teacher Town Hall web chat at 10:00 a.m., Sunday, September 25 (Colorado time), and tell the public about the teaching profession. The Teacher Town Hall is part of NBC’s week-long Education Nation program.

Register here for the online web chat with fellow teachers.
 
NEA President Dennis Van Roekel will appear on a panel, and it’s likely that at least one Colorado teacher will also be featured. Join them and educators from every state to share your ideas on teaching challenges and opportunities.
 
Join CEA’s educator effectiveness tele-town hall, Wednesday

We’ll hold a town hall meeting over teleconference for Association members on Wednesday, September 28, from 4:00-5:00 p.m., where you can hear the latest developments on Senate Bill 191 and the State Board of Education’s proposed rules for the law. The meeting is timed for the week before the State Board’s October 5 meeting, the last opportunity for the public to weigh in on the law before the board finalizes its rules and sends them to the Legislature.

The State Council for Educator Effectiveness, after working for many months, recommended a statewide teacher-principal evaluation system to the State Board of Education in August. The council designed a single framework for teacher and principal evaluations in a fair, transparent, timely, rigorous, and valid system that every district will use. The town hall meeting will explain conflicts we have with the State Board’s rules  and how educators can act to see the realization of the State Council’s vision.  Plenty of time will be allotted for your questions.
 
When you register, you will get all the information you need for the town hall. Please provide your personal email, instead of school email, at this registration link.
