Welcome to the October edition of CEA's Building Rep News. This newsletter is designed just for you—building representatives. The links below take you to stories relevant to Connecticut teachers, and we urge you to share them with your colleagues.

Stories and flyers are printable and include timely legislative and education policy developments, professional development and other CEA events, exclusive CEA member discounts, awards and grants, and more.

Please print and distribute announcements and flyers to teachers' mailboxes or post them in the faculty breakroom; some building reps share these via email.
