Tell Medford School District Management to Rebuild the Trust with Our Community
On March 7, 2014, the nearly 600 members of the MEA ratified a new contract by a wide margin--a welcome culmination of an almost year-long battle with school officials to rebuild trust with the community. MEA President Cheryl Lashley commented, "Together we stood strong for Medford schools and the students we serve. We know that it will be important to take needed steps in healing, but with the solid support of our community, teachers have a foundation to build upon. We are grateful for all the support that continues to pour in from the community. Most of all we are glad to be back in our classrooms with our students providing them with the quality services they deserve." Thank you for signing our petition and speaking out for quality education in Medford. Together, we achieved a great victory for our children.
