Welcome to the Apple Valley Unified Teachers Association (AVUTA) web site!
AVUTA hopes you all had a restful summer and are looking forward to a great school year! We are looking forward to servicing you as our members, please feel free to contact any member of Exec Board or Rep Council.
Welcome New Teachers
We are pleased to announce AVUSD has hired over 80 new teachers this year. AVUTA is hosting a New Teacher Luncheon to welcome them at their scheduled New Teacher Orientation that AVUSD is holding in late July. We are excited to finally see employment growth in education and can't wait to welcome our new colleagues.
These are dues from last school year 2013-2014. They will be raised slightly, but the difference between the two is a matter of $0.50.. The new dues will be around $3.00 more.
New AVUTA Leadership
AVUTA is in the process of changing leadership. We have several positions open on Exec Board and are always looking for new teachers who are interested in serving on either board or a committee. Please contact anyone on the board if you are interested in becoming an active AVUTA member. We would also like to welcome our new President, John Zachau, and sending him our good wishes as he proceeds in taking over the leadership of AVUTA.
