Welcome Back and Updates

Greetings NEA-Jurupa family,


I hope that you all had a great Spring Break and that you were able to rest and recharge!



As we start to wrap our heads around the last 9 weeks of the school year, testing windows, and end-of-the year activities, I wanted to make sure to get these out to you ASAP.


NEA-Jurupa Scholarships: Each year NEA-Jurupa offers several scholarships to deserving students from our comprehensive high schools, as well as one dependent scholarship for a child of one of our active members. Please see attachment for more information. Application deadline is Friday, April 15th.


Joint Panel Applications: The Association will be appointing two members to the joint panel this year for three-year terms (July 1, 2022-June 30, 2025). Applications for the position are attached and are due by Monday, April 18th. In order to be considered for the appointment, you must be an active member of the Association.


Article XXII Peer Assistance and Review Section 6 – Joint Panel

  1. The Peer Assistance and Review Program will be administered by a Panel consisting of seven (7) members, four (4) certificated classroom teachers appointed by the Association, and three (3) administrators appointed by the District. A Panel member’s term shall be no more than three (3) years. Panel members may be reappointed once their term has expired.

Per NEA-Jurupa’s Standing Rules:

Rule VIII.  Joint Panel Appointments

Your site reps work diligently on your behalf to bring issues to light and to advocate for your and your students. Each and every rep is deserving of this award.
