AAE Supports Utah’s Charter School Teachers through New Partnership with UAPCS
posted by: Alix | October 18, 2011, 05:00 AM   

Today, AAE and the Utah Association of Public Charter Schools (UAPCS) announce a new partnership to support Utah's charter school teachers. Teachers and other employees of member schools of UAPCS are eligible to join AAE for a great low price – only $160 per year. This is a great opportunity for charter school teachers who are looking for membership in a pro-charter teacher organization.

"We are thrilled to partner with UAPCS to provide professional membership and benefits to the Utah's dedicated charter school educators," said AAE Executive Director Gary Beckner. "This partnership will allow both organizations to better support charter school teachers as professionals."

AAE, as the leader of a growing professional educator network, believes that the charter school movement is an important component in creating a first-class public school system.

Included in the AAE/UAPCS offerings for teachers:

Professional Liability Insurance: Liability coverage guards your career and your personal assets by providing insurance for traditional legal claims or suits filed against teachers and school staff. This comprehensive 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. Defense costs are paid in addition to the $2 million in liability coverage.

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

Teacher Scholarships and Classroom Grants: The AAEF provides thousands of dollars annually in teacher scholarships and classroom grants, specifically designed to help advance continuing education and student achievement.

"Whether a teacher works in a traditional, charter, virtual or private school, they need the peace-of-mind of solid protection so that they can focus on educating children," said Beckner. "As an advocate for educators, we firmly believe that no educator should be without professional liability insurance."

AAE's partnership with UAPCS is just the latest in a series of formal partnerships with charter school associations in both California and Indiana. Offering unmatched professional benefits at a fraction of the cost, AAE's services and vision for educators is resonating with the charter community nationwide.
