Non-Union Educator Group Supports California Charters

  • Print

September 30, 2011 The Association of American Educators (AAE), the largest national non-union professional teachers association, is thrilled to be partnered with the California Charter School Association again this school year to provide quality professional benefits to California's dedicated charter school educators. AAE, as the leader of a growing professional educator's network, sees the charter movement as the key to success in creating an education system for the 21st century and is honored to support charter school employees.

As the premier national, non-union professional association, AAE provides professional benefits for charter school teachers including:

  • Professional Liability Insurance: This policy protects you against a broad range of exposures associated with your educational duties and pays up to $2 million for damages arising from professional liability and employment related lawsuits.

  • Employment Rights Coverage: Included in the $2 million individual liability insurance policy, AAE ensures that members have access to legal counsel at the onset of workplace employment issues.

  • Employee Assistance Program: This program offers employee retention resources and referrals to employers while offering services in the following areas to employees: clinical counseling services, financial services, legal services, childcare and eldercare assistance, ID theft recovery services and daily living services.

  • Teacher Scholarships and Classroom Grants: In cooperation with the AAE Foundation, CES provides thousands of dollars annually in teacher scholarships and classroom grants, specifically designed to help advance continuing education and student achievement.

It is critical that professional educators obtain liability insurance to protect their careers. While we all have car insurance and other safe-guards to protect our property and health, not all educators are protected with an individual liability policy. It is essential that charter school teachers not step into the classroom without coverage this school year.

We invite you to examine the partnership for yourself. Back-to-school season is the perfect time to secure AAE benefits for the school year.
