We, the Dayton Education Association, will encourage professionalism; advocate the rights of members; and demonstrate a positive commitment to the enhancement of "Public Education."
Right now in Ohio, billions are being spent in an attempt to scam and mislead us into leaving our union. But here’s the truth: we only have power in numbers.
Don’t be fooled – DEA/OEA/NEA is here to protect schools and give us the voice we deserve!
The rally will be held on Wednesday, March 18 at the Ohio Statehouse in downtown Columbus from 3pm until 5pm. If interested you must commit to arrive by 2:30pm in order to get parked and be on the grounds of the Statehouse by 3pm. You must also commit to stay until the event concludes, or 5pm, whichever occurs first.
DEA will gather requests to attend from members and then provide all interested members with an email that says either:
YES: Immediately request Association Leave, or
HOLD: you’re on the wait list.
The confirmation email will contain further details and instructions for requesting DEA Association Leave from DPS to attend.
>>>PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST LEAVE FROM DPS UNTIL AND UNLESS YOU RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL<<<
DEA is pleased to provide Association Leave and CEU contact hours for DEA members who attend, however, no additional reimbursements are available. Carpooling is encouraged.
IMPORTANT: DEA is prohibited from using Association Leave for a member who is responsible for state testing on March 18. Therefore, please check your calendar and lesson plans closely before completing this form.
