NEA-Dallas wants to make sure that all our members, Support Professionals, Educators, and other school employees have all available resources to assist with their professional and private needs as they adjust their professional and private lives impacted by COVID-19.

NEA-Dallas wants to hear from our members about HOW we can help with these transitions and WHAT specifically, do you need to make successful adaption to your career? WHEN do you need these resources or tools?

WHY is NEA-Dallas asking? NEA-Dallas knows that to best ideas for change, resolution and relief starts at the grass roots. Connecting members with vital information, resources, and ideas where all members can get local, state, and federal assistance with weathering the current COVID-19 pandemic, is the most effective way to promote the success of student learning and employee concerns.

Aside from NEA-Dallas’ message to stay healthy, safe, and distanced, NEA-Dallas would like to salute the NEA-Dallas bus drivers, custodians, teachers, and volunteers who are working tirelessly to ease the struggles of students, neighbors and friends impacted by the pandemic.
