Meeting with Superintendent Johnson

Laura Black and I met with Dr. Johnson this morning in our regular monthly scheduled meeting.  We discussed Itineris, pay issues going from year-round to traditional and traditional to year-round, and an exit survey.

Patsi expressed concern over politics in Utah.  She wonders why a small group of people elected as delegates have so much power at the conventions and leave the majority of contituents' voices out of the process.  She has noticed that many legislators have a particular issue and become representatives to change a law around one item or incident.  She recognizes that teachers need to be active in attending their caucuses and becoming delegates this March. 

JEA agrees.  We have been encouraging our members for years to go to their party caucus meetings to become delegates.  I know it is a long way off, but plan to attend your party caucus, usually a Tuesday night toward the end of March.
