Teaching In the Era of Zoom
Primrose Cameron, the Director of FEA’s new Professional Development and Educational Research Department, shared some tips for educators in her recent AFT Voices article, “Teaching in the era of Zoom: My ‘Five C’s’ for student engagement”.
Safe Schools Report
FEA launched the Safe Schools Report, to collect and display important, factual information surrounding the opening of school campuses across the state. Parents and educators can also submit Covid-related information about their school or district’s reopening.
FEA update (Sep. 2 update): To comply with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, FEA staff will be working remotely until there is a two-week positivity rate of 5% or below. Please frequently check back for further updates. FEA staff will continue to be available through email, phone and voicemail. During this difficult time, FEA is committed to advocating for the wellbeing of our members and students. We will continue to provide you information on COVID-19’s impact on the state of education, notices from the Florida Department of Education, and the end of the legislative session. Thank you and stay well.
