SY 2018-19: Year of Vital Decisions 

Dear DCPS Educator,

Welcome back to DCPS for the School Year 2018-19! The Washington Teachers’ Union will do everything possible to help assure that this coming year will be fulfilling and productive for you, and that we will all get closer to our goal of delivering to each and every one of our students an excellent education.

After teaching in DCPS for 44 years, I am convinced that excellence in education – and fairness in working conditions for teachers – is best achieved when the voice of educators is heard in the development and implementation of educational policies and programs. Under the DCPS-WTU contract, administrators must afford the WTU and its members the status of “full and equal partners” in addressing issues that impact our schools.

Over the years I’ve observed that the voice of teachers is most effectively heard when the WTU is strong and members work together.
