Teaching and Learning
Protect teachers and students by ensuring COVID-19 safety protocols are enforced; addressing and preventing violent classroom behavior; addressing issues of mold, extreme temperatures, lead, water quality, and other school building conditions unconducive to teaching and learning; and requiring school districts to adopt the National School Climate Standards
Classroom Safety/Social Emotional Learning
CEA will continue to advocate for legislation that protects teachers and students from physical harm and repeated disruption of learning; ensure COVID-19 safety protocols are enforced; and allow all to feel safe and secure while at school.
Legislation should include
- District accountability
- Interventions for students
- Safe spaces for teachers to teach and students to learn.
Indoor Air Quality
CEA will pursue legislation to include financial support to districts, to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 in school buildings, and to address matters related to Infrastructure. The issues would include but not limited to, acceptable temperature and humidity levels, and the accumulation of dust and mold.*
