From the Lawyer's Desk
What should you do when your principal or supervisor approaches you and says you are required to get a drug or alcohol screening? It's a scary situation for anyone to be in and if you're a union member, the first thing you should do is call the union office.

From the Lawyer's Desk

You're sitting at school one day, very innocently doing your job, and someone comes into your room and says, "I'm from central office and I'd like to ask you a few questions."

We strongly recommend you call the union.


How Is Your School After Ida?

Let Us Know.

You have recently received communication from the district regarding some of the school buildings requiring minor repairs and attention. While some may view these repairs as minor, we understand that many of you are seeing extensive damage that would be a safety concern or a hinderance to learning.


September Update: After Hurricane Ida

JFT, along with other locals affected by Hurricane Ida, will work with our state affiliate, the Louisiana Federation of Teachers, on a comprehensive plan to request a waiver of instructional minutes for this school year, as many are in the process of rebuilding their homes and lives. We believe, first and foremost, an emphasis should be placed on the social emotional needs of our students and their families in order for any type of instruction to be effective.
