Thank you to all of the outstanding educators who go above and beyond every single day to serve their students and communities. Although Teacher Appreciation Week ends today, we want you to know that we appreciate you today, tomorrow, and every day that follows.

We're pleased that our members’ demands are beginning to pay off for Texas school children and applaud state officials for releasing $11.2 billion of the federal stimulus money earmarked for public education in Texas. Now, we urge the state to consult with educators and do whatever is necessary to free up the remainder of the stimulus money that the federal government has allocated to Texas schools and release it to school districts. The total was $17.9 billion.https://tsta.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/20210428-TSTA-stimulus-fund-efforts-beginning-to-pay-off.pdf

COVID-19 issues - reports from the front lines

#TeamTSTA, we need to make sure our schools and students are safe! We need real data in order to properly address deficiencies with state and local officials, including local school boards, the State Board of Education, the Legislature and the governor. Please take a moment to help us identify and address the issues and locations where concerns remain.

A PETITION TO THE MEMBERS OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION IN TEXAS TO VETO THE CHARTER APPLICATION FOR ROYAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Sign Our Petition to SBOE Members to Just Say No to Charter Schools

Royal Public Schools has submitted a charter application to open four new charter campuses on the southside targeting Harlandale, Southside and South San Antonio school districts. Prelude Public Schools is another charter asking to open a campus in the Southwest area. If approved, these charter campuses will open at a time when parents, educators, and local school board members are working hard together to meet unique challenges and to strengthen our public schools.

Placing a new charter school in our community that we did not ask for will jeopardize what we have accomplished by draining critical funding from our neighborhood public schools. Now is the time to strengthen our neighborhoods public schools, not to undermine them. Please support our efforts to educate all children in our community. The State Board of Education will vote on September 11, 2020 to approve or to veto the charter application for Royal Public Schools.

THANK YOU for considering signing the petition to support our neighborhood public schools.

Let's Make Trouble Together

Beginning Monday, East Central ISD is phasing students into schools for in-person instruction. Last night's COVID-19 report by Mayor Ron Nirenberg shows that San Antonio is at 44,122 cases and "in-patient hospitalizations increased over the weekend." There have been no changes in San Antonio Metro Health's directives so why is East Central ISD bringing students back into building DURING A PANDEMIC? It is not safe. Stand in solidarity with our East Central students and staff and our community as we fight to slow and eventually stop the community spread of COVID-19 in San Antonio.

👉ACTION ITEMS: Email the superintendent and board members and tell them it is not safe for students and staff to return back to school buildings. All instruction, learning, and working must be 100% remote/virtual until the metrics and science show us otherwise.
