Amazing 08 Election Victories CCEA goes 4 for 4 in historic school board of trustees election November 4, 2008, will go down in history for electing the first African- American President of the United States. But, locally, the Clark County Education Association made history when all four CCEA-recommended candidates were elected to the Clark County School District Board of Trustees something political pundits could not have predicted. CCEA s recommended candidates in those races were District A - Deanna Wright; District B - Chris Garvey; District C - Linda Young; and District E - incumbent Terry Janison. (Current board members Mary Beth Scow, Ruth Johnson and Shirley Barber were ineligible to run due to term limits.) We extend a heartfelt THANKS to CCEA members, retirees, staff, and friends & family for volunteering countless hours to participate in the many activities that surrounded these campaigns. Your commitment to electing teacher-friendly candidates to the school board most certainly paid off. (Please see page 5 for list of volunteers.) In addition to the school board races, we were very successful in electing an education-friendly slate of legislators to the Nevada Senate and Assembly, including Speaker Barbara Buckley and the First African- American Senate Majority Leader, Steven Horsford.

Nevada is in financial crisis and Governor Gibbons has warned us that an additional $300+ million needs to be reduced from the budget. The 2009 Legislative Session will prove extremely challenging for education funding considering the current economic conditions, but we must demand that K-12 public education remain a top priority. The governor and the legislature always claim that education is a priority, so let s hold them accountable. We will not take any lip service. We will be calling upon everyone yes, that means you too to contact your legislators and demand that they put education first. It is time they fulfill their campaign promises. It is time they deliver the resources and funding necessary to provide a quality education in Nevada. We will be at the forefront reminding them that teachers working conditions, are students learning conditions.

2 A Word from the President by Ruben R. Murillo, Jr. What next? In the past, CCEA has been criticized for being weak, having a lack of influence, or being impotent when it comes to politics. Then, on November 4, 2008, that perception changed. CCEA was successful in electing all four endorsed candidates for CCSD Board of Trustees. We make no apologies for supporting the candidates we endorsed and to the extent that we did. The Review-Journal, as well as other media outlets (including ESPN sports radio 1100), has been critical of our involvement. As an organization, it is imperative that CCEA be actively involved in the political process. We will be at the forefront, working with our endorsed candidates on issues that impact teachers and students Stay connected. in the classroom. We need Sign up for candidates who are open to updates. Simply visit hearing CCEA s input on the issues rather than board members who would cast aside the voice of CCEA members to further their own agenda. So where do we go from here? With the 2009 Nevada Legislature set to meet in February, the threat of a special session to address additional budget cuts, and the Room Tax Advisory Question, CCEA members must be ready to act at a moment s notice. In order to organize our members for this important legislative session we need your help and participation by doing the following. Go to and sign up to receive notices. Your assistance will be needed in contacting legislators when important issues arise. Robo calls will be used to deliver important information. They will direct you to the CCEA web page for specific information and directions. CCEA will also look for members who wish to serve as legislative advocates assigned to southern Nevada legislators. The CCEA Government Relations Committee will work to develop a grassroots organization that will offer training to members who are interested in becoming active advocates for teachers and CCEA. If you have any other ideas or are interested in participating in these endeavors, please go to and sign up to receive s. We face a depressed economy and devastating proposed budget cuts in the upcoming legislative session. We need your participation to protect teachers benefits and working conditions. Get involved. There is just too much at stake. Frequently Asked Questions By Kathy Foresythe CCEA Deputy Executive Director Legal Services Topic: Personnel Files Does CCSD maintain more than one personnel file for a teacher? Yes, Article 14 of the Negotiated Agreement provides for two (2) personnel files: one is kept at the central office and one is kept at the school location. Can written reports, comments, and other documents be placed in these files without the knowledge of the teacher? No, a copy of any document placed in the personnel files must be provided to the teacher. Are teachers required to sign documents to be placed in their file? Yes, if you are directed to sign a document, other than a resignation, you must sign it. Can a teacher be disciplined for refusing to sign a document? Yes, refusal to follow a direction to sign a document is considered insubordination and could result in an admonition. Does your signature mean that you agree with the contents of the document? No, by signing a document you are acknowledging that you have received it, not that you agree with it. Can teachers respond to documents placed in their personnel files? Yes, you have thirty (30) work days (see definition in Article 1-13) to submit a response to your administrator. W h e re does the response go? The response is signed by your administrator and a copy is placed in your work location file and one is sent to Human Resources to be placed in your central office file. Page 2 CCEA Express

3 Budget Cuts... What does it mean to my contract? In the wake of the much talked about budget cuts, speculation, rumors and fear have raised several questions about the working conditions for licensed personnel. Many calls have come in asking whether teachers will have to give up preparation periods and whether there will be a step increase next year, all of which are valid questions. The fact that CCEA was able to negotiate the 2% and 4% pay raises for last year and this year, along with PERS paid this year, is astonishing given the budget crisis that was already occurring. The Collective Bargaining Agreement entered into between the school district and CCEA is a valid contract requiring that the terms outlined therein are met by the parties. That 64-page document is critical to defining the minimums that the school district must adhere to. The current contract provides for preparation periods, duty free lunch, sick days, etc. amongst other terms that enhance working conditions. Significantly, the salary schedule is also included in the contract. Thus, teachers will continue to advance based upon education and/or experience. With that said, there are other ways that budget cuts can and will more than likely have to occur and CCEA is prepared to have those discussions with the school district. Negotiations for the next contract will resume this fall and both parties will be interested in setting forth their goals for maintaining the terms in the contract that already exist, as well as being innovative in a budget crisis. it is imperative that teachers get involved and write to the State Legislature. Only by putting pressure on the legislature will there be an opportunity to secure funding for raises, retain/ reduce class sizes, and improve working conditions. This year, more than ever, it is imperative that teachers get involved and write to the State Legislature. Only by putting pressure on the legislature will there be an opportunity to secure funding for raises, retain/reduce class sizes, and improve working conditions. I recently met with a member who told me that her grandmother had worked for the school district for 40 years and they had to fight for preparation periods. She was adamant that preparation periods be protected because once you give something up, it will be hard to ever get it back. It s easy to let the propaganda, rumors and speculation that is around us put fear in our minds. To the extent that it empowers us to get politically motivated and effect change in the legislature, it is good. However, if you become fearful, remember you are not worse off than you were. The Collective Bargaining Agreement will protect working conditions. The school principal, superintendent, nor the school board can unilaterally take them away without being negotiated. NSEA Endorsed Candidates Win Big! More than 75 percent take races NSEA is happy to report that approximately 75 percent of the endorsed candidates won their elections on November 4. We re so proud of those candidates and are happy that the hard work and commitment of our members contributed to the success of these individuals, commented NSEA President Lynn Warne. We look forward to working hand in hand with these incumbents and newly-elected leaders to see that the ever-increasing needs of K- 12 public schools in Nevada are met. The next step is preparing for the 2009 Legislative Session. NSEA will be on the ground in Carson City lobbying Nevada s lawmakers to protect members rights, as well as to implement legislation to ensure we can provide quality public schools for Nevada s students. We will be counting on your involvement and support throughout the session. Stay tuned for ways in which you can become involved to ensure our success in Carson City.

4 RETIREE HEALTH TRUST FAQs Who is the Retiree Health Trust (RHT)? The RHT is the Trust that manages your retiree health plan. The RHT is considered its own legal entity. It has its own board members, IRS identification number, and bank numbers. Although not subject to ERISA, (Employee Retirement Insurance Security Act of 1974), the RHT intends to follow ERISA guidelines to the extent feasible. How is the RHT funded? $1.4 million from CCSD annually. An additional monthly contribution of $12.76 per licensed employee by CCSD. A start-up transfer of approximately $3 million from the Career Plan. An assessment of $15 per paycheck from each licensed employee. Is my contribution covered under Section 125? No, Section 125 bars pre-tax deductions on the $15.00 RHT subsidy deduction because it is for your future retiree insurance benefit. How do I qualify for retiree insurance benefits with the RHT? You must have 5 years of service as a licensed employee with the Clark County School District ( CCSD ) and must have retired as a licensed employee. Your years of service do not have to be consecutive. How do I qualify for a RHT subsidy? You must have a minimum of 10 years of service as a licensed employee with CCSD.

If you do not elect to enroll immediately following your retirement as a licensed employee, you may only enroll in the RHT during an open enrollment period or a life event. If I am 65 years or older do I qualify for the RHT? Yes. However, because Medicare coverage begins at age 65, a Medicare Advantage Plan will be offered for those retirees who are 65 years of age or older.
