Measure S Fact Sheet

Measure S is a Success! Thanks to all of you who volunteered your time to inform the voters--all of your work has paid off! Come to the next OUSD School Board meeting wearing either the navy blue "Yes on S" shirt or the black "OUEA" shirt to show our support and hear the next steps. We will have extra "OUEA" shirts for anyone who doesn't already have one--just look for Ronda Wun or Jen Pettey before the meeting begins.

Have You Heard?

  • Potential Facilities Bond Survey Open or Close

    If you were wondering why there hasn’t been a survey to ask for priorities in bargaining, that is because negotiations will not begin until December as agreed in the most recent contract. The November 2016 elections, especially the potential bond measure, deserve our focus which may better inform negotiations for the 2016-2017 school year. If you have not yet taken the Potential Facilities Bond Survey, please do so at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PotentialBondCampaign.

  • About Open or Close

    The Orange Unified Education Association was established in 1953 and represents the teachers, counselors, nurses, media specialists, psychologists, and speech pathologists who work in the Orange Unified School District.

  • OUEA Survey Open or Close

    When OUEA asks members to take a survey, it is for the purpose of gathering information and feedback in general—please don’t assume that creating/conducting a survey implies a dissatisfaction. For example, the principal surveys are not given to all sites at the same time, and the sites that do conduct a survey are not necessarily selected because concerns have arisen. The recent principal surveys were conducted at sites that had a principal for at least one and a half years and that were not surveyed during the last round three years ago; the same parameters will be used when the next round of principal surveys are conducted. Furthermore, some sites that were selected expressed their happiness with their current principal, which is also relevant information. The elementary survey results were only shared with Anne Truex, Executive Director of Elementary Education, and the middle school and high school results were only shared with Kerrie Torres, Executive Director of Secondary Education. Before the comments were shared, any specifics that may reveal the identity of the responder were removed or edited to ensure anonymity. Please note that the members of the selected sites received postcards with the survey link—if you were asked to take a survey and did not get the postcard, it may not have been an official OUEA survey so the results may not be handled with the same concern for anonymity.

Strong Schools: School Funding

The Big Picture: Strengthen Unions
