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.

Announcements

With the news changing so rapidly on COVID-19 and its impact on Chandler schools, it can be difficult to keep up. To help our community, CEA is providing a resource page that links to local resources (including news from CUSD), as well as statewide and national resources from AEA and NEA. You can find this resource at chandlerea.org/covid19. This page will be updated as we are made aware of new resources that may be helpful to the CEA and CUSD community, so be sure to check back often.

The Community Art Build that we had planned to offer on Saturday, March 21 has been postponed due to health concerns related to COVID-19. We are hoping to offer a similar experience after this health crisis passes, and we will keep our members posted if we are able to do so.

Arizona Capitol

The legislative session is underway once again! We made great progress in the 2018 election, but still need to make our voices heard and keep the pressure on our legislators to keep moving forward toward restoring funding for education … and avoid passing bills that move our education system backwards.

With all of the bills being considered, it can be tough to keep up, let alone advocate for our students and our profession. Our Legislative Toolkit can help, giving you information on how to stay informed on what’s happening at the capitol and how you can make an impact on the process (including signing up for the Request to Speak system). Check it out today and become an education advocate!
