Dear EAW Members,
The first meeting of the EAW House of Delegates will occur on Wednesday, September 25th from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Room 117 of the Learning Resource Center (486 Chandler St) at Worcester State University. We are moving this meeting to WSU so we can participate at the School Committee Candidate Moderated Forum, which is taking place on that same day, also at WSU, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Sullivan Auditorium.
The School Committee has oversight of and responsibility for the school system. Their decisions affect the education of our students and the working conditions of our members. They review and approve the budget and set the direction in which the system must go. The School Committee is the body with whom we will negotiate our next contracts and, in the grievance process, determine whether the contract has been violated. Therefore it is important for us to be involved throughout this election process. To that end, we will walk the three minutes from the Learning Resource Center to the Sullivan Auditorium after our meeting.
