After the two days of Year Round New Teacher Induction, we didn't gain as many members as I had hoped. I ask all of you in year round schools to talk to the new teachers about the benefits and importance of joining JEA. They were given an application in the packet we provided. For new teachers, JEA/UEA offers BasicMed, a 60-day medical insurance program that will provide coverage until the district insurance starts. Also, anyone who joins JEA between now and the end of September will be entered into a drawing for an 8 GB iPod Nano! Remind the new teachers of these benefits.
The Jordan UniServ office has had one president's office. With the split of the district, there are now two association presidents, one for Jordan and one for Canyons. The large president's office is being reconfigured to have two work spaces. This change is being paid for through the UniServ budget. This is happening in the next two weeks, so I will not be in the office, but I will be checking e-mail and voice mail from home.
