TEAM, Certification Requirements, Professional Development – What You Need to Know About Important Changes

TEAM replacing BEST, new certification requirements, professional development committees – legislative changes are affecting teachers in Connecticut and you and your colleagues need to be informed.  Don’t wait until changes have already occurred in your district and it’s too late for you to have a voice.

Come to one of CEA’s Professional Issues Updates to learn more about the changes, find out how you can have input in your district, and understand how CEA can help your local.

CEA is encouraging a five to six person team from every local association to attend an update.  Your team ideally will include your local president, one or two other executive board members, and three teachers willing to serve as your local association’s information contacts for professional development, TEAM, and certification information.

There are five more Professional Issues Updates occurring this fall (dates and locations below).  If you haven’t already signed up for one, go to, find Upcoming Events on the left side of the homepage, and click on the Professional Issues Update session you are interested in attending.
