Only by signing up can you be sure to receive important emails from our chapter and the union. Signing up also gives you the ability to log in the website to see our contract.

As your chapter leader, I am here for you.

Please keep an eye on this website for postings of this year's chapter meeting dates and other events.

I look forward to working with you this school year. Thank you for all your hard work and the dedication you show every day to your students and school.

What's New

$5.8B in student debt being erased for the disabled

More than 323,000 borrowers with significant or permanent disabilities will be relieved of a total of about $5.8 billion in student debt beginning in September, the U.S. Education Department announced.

Shower of thanks

UFT members and other frontline workers were showered with confetti on July 7 at a “Hometown Heroes” parade celebrating them for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic in one of the largest ticker-tape parades in New York City history

Special ed evaluation & services

All students suspected of having a disability should be identified, located and evaluated. Referral for special education evaluation should not, however, be the first response to pandemic-related learning loss or readjustment issues.
