Problems with iVisions. Every GBEA member needs to double check their leave accumulations in iVisions. Instructions will help you get into the system and find what iVisions says your leave accumulation is currently at, however you need to compare this to your past pay stubs from the district in order to determine if all of your leave has been added up correctly and is in the iVisions program. MULTIPLE MEMBERS HAVE ALREADY REPORTED PROBLEMS WITH THEIR LEAVE ACCUMULATIONS!! Some dating back to September of 2011. Please take a few minutes and review your leave, it could affect your retirement!

Wear Red for Public Ed

Tuesday's are “Wear Red for Public Ed” days where everybody across America is asked to wear something red to show support for our nation’s public education system.

The idea originated in January of 2011 with teachers, parents and students in Florida who were upset with some of the current reforms in public education.

While wearing red on Tuesday won't solve any of the real problems facing public education, it will show that there are plenty of us out there who support public education, have an opinion about public education, and want our voices to be heard regarding public education.  Hopefully this will be the first step in the long overdue process of letting those who are actually involved first-hand in America's public education system--administrators, educators, parents, and students--have a say in what happens to it.
