Welcome to the Chandler Education Association website. The mission of CEA is:
to be involved in all aspects of the educational process and
an advocate for its members and the issues which affect them
We hope this website can help you stay informed about issues surrounding education, and to be a strong advocate for yourself and your profession.
It’s football season and bond election season … and we’re going to take advantage of both by being present at CUSD football games to distribute information on our upcoming bond election! If you can come and spend just an hour before kickoff handing out information, we can reach thousands of interested CUSD stakeholders! Please consider showing up at 6:00 pm for one (or more!) of these games:
- October 11: Basha HS at Hamilton HS
- October 25: ALA at ACP Erie
- November 1: Hamilton HS at Chandler HS
Remember that if you’re a CUSD employee, you can get into the game for free with your ID badge … so come support the bond and then stick around to support your favorite CUSD high school!

Are you a new educator at CUSD this year? Please consider joining us for our first annual New to CUSD Educator Night on Thursday, September 19 from 4:00-7:00 pm at The Local in Downtown Chandler! This event is open to CEA members and non-members alike who are new to CUSD, and is a great way to network with fellow new educators as we near the end of the first quarter. The Local has been supportive of public education, and we are glad we get to support them back with our business (and take advantage of their food and drink specials). There will be raffle prizes, too! Please RSVP on our Facebook page so we can plan accordingly.
