Unite Summit Fall 2019 Survey
When we formed Unite Summit last year, we had three main goals:
1. Increase teacher retention and stability for our students
2. Improve student support services
3. Allow teachers to have an equal voice in important decisions that impact our teaching conditions
This school year, we are working to achieve those goals by:
Bargaining our first union contract (Collective Bargaining Agreement)
Building strong structures for input and involvement at each of our sites
Communicating with Summit families to ensure their perspectives and ideas are reflected in our work as a union
We want to make sure that the aspirations and concerns of both returning and new teachers are reflected in our work this school year. Thank you in advance for participating in our survey!
