Who should we shine a spotlight on?


This year JEA would like to feature some of our many outstanding educators on a regular basis in the newspaper. We want teachers represented from each school. Attached is a form that will need to be completed and returned along with a photo. For ease and accuracy the form should be typed and completed by the person who will be spotlighted. Additional information can be included and/or questions can be skipped. The purpose is to highlight the positives of our profession. Please help by making sure we have a couple of completed forms from each school. Forms should be sent to Holly Ireno. Let us know if you have any questions or ask your building rep.

National, State & Local Elections & You












Dear JEA Members,

After careful deliberation and consideration of public education related survey responses from the candidates for federal and state office in your area, the NEA-Alaska PACE committee has formally endorsed the following candidates.  These candidates have committed to work diligently towards ensuring every child has access to high quality public education, every teacher has a secure and reliable retirement, and public education funding actually winds up in the classroom.

I am proud to announce the candidates that we will have the opportunity to vote for. As the election cycle moves forward, we will be scheduling informational meet-and-greets with the NEA-Alaska Endorsed Candidates so you can ask them questions.
