Great News to kick off the school year
We are proud to announce that we will start the 2015-2016 school year having reached a tentative agreement between the South Orange / Maplewood Educational Association and the Board of Education. We will work to establish salary guides within the next couple of weeks in order to bring the contract to you for ratification.

Town Hall Meeting on Safety
South Orange Maplewood Education Association is proud to announce that we are endorsing Greg Lembrich in his candidacy for Maplewood Township Committee. Greg spoke to our members at today’s rep council committee meeting. He spoke about his interest in bringing more communication between the Township Committee and the Board of Education members. In addition, he provided us information about the PILOTs (payment in lieu of taxes) that are being given to developers in our towns. PILOTs incentivize developers, but the tax money does not come to our schools. Greg spoke about his respect for educators and staff and his willingness to work collectively with all stakeholders of the district. Please visit his Facebook page, Greg Lembrich for Township Committee and see his website www.greg4maplewood.com for more information on the issues.
Congratulations to Phil McCormick being elected to serve as a New Jersey state delegate to the National Education Association for 2015-2016!
