Dear Members,

I hope you are enjoying your summer break and feeling a lot more relaxed. In the summer months, BTA will be preparing for our New Hire Orientation on August 1st. This is the first year in a long time that BTA will be partnering with BUSD so that our new educators are more prepared for the 2024-2025 school year. We will be sharing the benefits of becoming a BTA/CTA/NEA member and all the member benefits that you get with your membership.

We will also be preparing for our Fall Leadership event in which we train out BTA reps so they can help and support you throughout the school year. Having this training will make sure reps are prepared to help and guide you when issues or concerns arise at your school site.
Have a great summer break!

In unity,
