On the Job Protection

Educators in each DCPS school elect their own Building Representative and members of a School Chapter Advisory Committee (SCAC) who work every day to protect the rights of members and to provide leadership in collaborating with school administrators to guarantee that DCPS students will receive world class educational opportunities.

Furthermore, The Washington Teachers’ Union has a staff of highly trained Field Representatives who advise the Building Reps and SCAC teams, help enforce the WTU-DCPS contract, continually strive to strengthen educator-administrator collaboration, and when necessary, process grievances.
