M-SCEA - Standing Strong!
Our members continue to stand strong with M-SCEA, the only Professional Association recognized by the SCS Board of Education. M-SCEA has a negotiated agreement (MOU) with the BOE that covers our members into the 2018 school year. Only members are covered by this contract. Our members know first-hand that together we are a strong force for educators in the district. Benefits of membership include Current Reduction in Dues, Liability Coverage, Legislative and Legal Victories, and strong experienced UniServ Directors or UDs. Jesse Jeff and Reginald Fentress are two UDs who are well-trained, experienced, educator advocates. They are just a phone call or email away. Click for a list of schools and assigned UDs.
