CEA Today – September 18, 2020

In this week’s CEA Today, we have upcoming online opportunities to share as well as our list of this year’s Public Education Champions.

This week’s edition contains the following:

  • Upcoming Webinar on Outbreak Guidance
  • Our 2020 Public Education Champions
  • NEA’s Meet the Candidates Event
  • California Casualty’s Keep On Course Jeep Giveaway
  • Tell Your Story to CEA
  • A Safe Start to the School Year

As we navigate the first few months of school, we hope you’re staying safe and healthy, and as we approach November’s election, we hope you’re getting engaged and thinking about how you’ll participate and vote on the issues that you care about most.

Have a good weekend, and to all who celebrate, have a safe and healthy Rosh Hashanah.

Tell Your Story to CEA

Are you an educator or do you know an educator making an exceptional impact on their students, parents or community? CEA wants to know how members are doing as the school year begins.

Go to CEA’s Tell Your Story page and CEA Communications will get in touch with you or the member to highlight their accomplishments in the media, on CEA social media, and in the CEA Journal member magazine.

Spread the word so we can share your stories.

A Safe Start to the School Year

We’re facing challenging and unprecedented times as this new school year begins. If you experience any issues on the job — whether remotely or in the workplace, please refer to CEA’s COVID-19 resource page and reach out to your local association.



As always, if you have content ideas, or if you have a colleague who goes above and beyond and needs a shout out or if you have ideas on how we can improve the CEA Today, please drop us a line at ceatoday@coloradoea.org.
