2020-2021 RESPA Site Representative Elections Information
Updated: Aug 26
Good evening RESPA members,
Time to elect Site Representatives for the 2020/2021 school year who will serve as members of the Representative Council, RESPA’s governing body. Serving as a Site Representative is a great way to become involved in our union.
Everyone has been extremely busy during the opening of the distance learning school year, more so, that it is different compare other years. Several school sites have been under represented in the past; therefore, site leaders are needed to represent the views of site members, share concerns, keep colleagues informed, advocate for all members, and vote on Association matters.
Site Representatives attend monthly Representative Council Meetings typically on the fourth Monday of the month, August through May @ 4:45 pm. The August to December Representative Council will virtually meet (via zoom). August meeting is scheduled for August 31, 2020.
Please consider running for the Site Representative position at your respective site for the 2020/2021 school year. All Site Representatives serve one year. New leaders and returning ones are all encouraged to run. It will help to become familiar with the RESPA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA – our contract), and the purposes of the Association while enjoying solidarity and friendship with colleagues.
Any interested candidates must thoroughly complete the attached form by next week Tuesday, September 1, 2020 and submit to Kerry Landon – Elections Chair @ eAcademy. Due to COVID-19, please scan your application and sent it to Kerry Landon via email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) OR send the form via district mail.
Elections will take place Thursday, September 3, 2020, through September 8, 2020. Details will shortly follow.
Lastly, please be mindful that if there are not enough candidates at each respective sites, candidate(s) will be declared winners by acclamation.
