    • Attention All PSERS Members:  Notice of Telephone Scam

  • PSERS Acting Executive Director Terrill J. Sanchez today issued an alert to all PSERS’ active and retired members about a recurring telephone scam in which PSERS’ members are contacted by individuals claiming to be with the U.S. Treasury or Internal Revenue Service. These individuals state there is an issue with their PSERS’ benefit.  This is a telephone scam and members should immediately hang up.

    “PSERS’ members should remain alert to these types of telephone scams,” Sanchez said. “These individuals can be aggressive and may call multiple times. It is important to never give out any personal information or account information. Protect yourself by not speaking with the caller. Simply hang up.”

    This telephone scam is very similar to a well-known IRS scam. More information on the IRS scam can be found at: http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/press/press_tigta-2015-01_home.htm

    Other tips for avoiding phone or email scams:

    • Never give out personal information over the telephone.
    • Never give out billing information over the phone, especially if you receive an unsolicited telephone call from a stranger.
    • Never forget that you are in control. You can always hang up, find a company's number and call it directly.
    • Remember this rule of thumb: never give out sensitive information to anyone on the phone unless you initiated the call to a company you are certain is legitimate.
  • Negotiations update #8: The Core Team of the AIUEA met with representatives of the AIU on February 18, 2015.  Our negotiation sessions continue to be positive and productive.  However, the session scheduled for March 18, 2015, was cancelled by the AIU.

    As always, our goal for the next Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is a fair and equitable contract.

    Negotiations Update #2 from Suzanne Brannagan, AIUEA Chief Negotiator
     
    On Wednesday, March 19, 2014, the Core Negotiations Team of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit Education Association and UniServe Representative Dan Carey met with representatives from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit to exchange proposals for the development of the 2014 Collective Bargaining Agreement.
     
    The meeting was cordial and productive.  Two additional dates for formal negotiations have been scheduled.
     
    Additional updates to follow. 
     
  •  

  • NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE #1: SEE BELOW

  • With the imminent sunset of the 2011-2014 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) on June 30, 2014, the process of negotiating the next CBA has begun.  In preparation for the 2014 Round of Negotiations and based on their commitment to this lofty task, I have selected the following members of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit Education Association (AIUEA) to represent the various programs of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit.  In preparation for this Round of Negotiations, many of the TEAM members listed below have attended PSEA’s Leadership Workshop at Gettysburg College. 

     

    Based on their significance to the process, I refer to them as the TEAM.

     

    Name                                      TEAM                                       Representation_______________

    Suzanne Brannagan                Chief Negotiator                        Bargaining Unit

    Victoria Rice Campbell           AIUEA Core Team Member     Bargaining Unit/District Based and Transition

    Danielle Clouse                       AIUEA Core Team Member       Bargaining Unit

    Mary Brushaber                     AIUEA Committee Member     Centers

    Dena Conway                         AIUEA Committee Member     DART

    Betsy Dalton                           AIUEA Committee Member     English as a Second Language

    Darlene Geddes                      AIUEA Committee Member     Speech and Language

    Michael Horvat                       AIUEA Committee Member     Hearing and Vision

    Vicky Kovacs                         AIUEA Committee Member     Non Public Schools

    Jan Pressman                           AIUEA Committee Member     English as a Second Language

    Janice Vogan                           AIUEA Committee Member     Pupil Personnel Services

    Michael Harrison                     AIUEA Salary Committee        Bargaining Unit   

  • The TEAM’s first meeting was held on September 10, 2013.  At that time, the goal of meeting was to meet at least two times per month and remain in continual communication via text, email, and TEAM meetings was established.

  • Following the selection of the TEAM and the onset of internal meetings, the negotiation process included a PSEA-recommended survey which was mailed to our members.  The results of the surveys were tabulated by PSEA and returned to the TEAM in graph form for easy analysis. To insure that the TEAM maintains awareness of the needs and desires of the membership, this data is continually referenced during the negotiation process.  

     

    As required by Act 88 of 1992: The Collective Bargaining Law for School Employees and to meet the time line requirements of the process, Dan Carey, PSEA Uniserv Representative, and I met with Dr. Michael Brinkos,  Assistant Executive Director for Operations and Educational Services, and his negotiations team  on Tuesday, January 7, 2014.  In essence, with this meeting, the formal negotiations process has begun.

     

    Please allow periodic emails presented in this format to inform you of our progress in the negotiation process.  In other words, if you did not hear it directly from me or a member of the Core Team, then please consider it rumor, innuendo, or simply speculation.  For your reference, the updates will also be posted on our website at http://aiuea.psealocals.org.  Parenthetically, this process of communication was developed in response to your survey request for more information during the negotiation process.

    As updates are sent, you may want to track the sections of the CBA that are signed by noting such in your 2011-2014 CBA.  The periodic updates will provide the specific sections which have been signed by both teams to date. 

       

    If you know of a colleague who is not receiving negotiation updates, please have her/him email aiueamemberconcerns@gmail.com  to provide a private email address.  Use of an AIU email address is not appropriate and will not be accepted as part of the list serve.

     

    As always, our goal for the negotiation of the next CBA is a fair and equitable contract.  You may reach AIUEA leadership at any time by emailing us at aiueamemberconcerns@gmail.com.

       

  • Remember to check your September 15th pay. Take your pre tax amount and multiply by 24 to make sure you are on the correct salary and step. If you are not, contact the IU!!!

Important Information

 

 

 

 

  • Spending Plan (FSA’s)
 
Members – You should have recently received a document form the AIU regarding Flexible Spending Plans.
 

We encourage you to seriously consider utilizing this plan to cover your out of pocket expenses.  Remember your insurance now has a deductible ($200.00 individual and $400.00 for family) which will also fall under the category of out of pocket expenses.

PLEASE SEE THE BENEFIT CHANGES CHART IN THE IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS SECTION OF THE WEBSITE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT!!

 

 

  • Are you a mentor?

Perhaps you are a formal mentor.  Perhaps you are a natural mentor.  Mentors are such an important part of the development of a novice teacher or a teacher who transfers into a new program.  Association Leadership applauds the individuals who volunteer to mentor – whether formally or naturally!

  • The good mentor is committed to the role of mentoring.
  • The good mentor is a model as a continuous learner.
  • The good mentor is accepting of the beginning teacher.
  • The good mentor is skilled at providing instructional support.
  • The good mentor is effective in different interpersonal contexts.
  • The good mentor communicates hope and optimism.

  

  • Retirement Information

Retirement is not just a big decision – it is a decision which must be made on clear and comprehension information.   If you are within five years of retiring, consider attending a retirement preparatory workshop.  In your PSERS Active Member Newsletter a schedule for the Foundations for Your Future workshops for the remaining academic year is available.  You may attend a workshop in a different region.  Simply call the region of your choice and make your reservation to attend.

Please note: Contractually, in order to be eligible for the retirement healthcare benefits, staff is required to submit a formal letter of retirement no later than March 30.  If the decision is not made by March 30, then an employee must give 60 days notice to retire to Human Resources and reserve retirement healthcare benefits. 

  • National Board Certification

(As reprint from www.psea.org)

National Board certification is the highest earned credential in the teaching profession. A teacher-driven, voluntary process established by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, certification is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based assessment that typically takes one to three years to complete, and measures what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. National board certification does not replace the need for state certification. As part of the process, teachers build a portfolio that includes student work samples, assignments, videotapes and a thorough analysis of their classroom teaching. Additionally, teachers are assessed on their knowledge of the subjects they teach.

 

  • PA Education’s Newest Acronym: EEP

EEP, Educator Effectiveness Project, is PDE’s continuing effort to redesign educator evaluation.  The funding source for the creation of new evaluation rubrics, training, and professional development is part of the $41 million in federal competitive grants awarded to the commonwealth from Race to the Top (RTTT) funds.  The EEP continues to have as its goal the use of ‘multiple measures of student achievement and growth.’  The EEP is still in the design phase and the evaluation rubrics are still under development.  In the interim, the professional employees of the AIU will continue to be evaluated by the current evaluation instruments.
