Local BOE Letters to Governor

WVEA local affiliates across the state are going to their local boards of education in November and December. They are sharing copies of the WV School Journal and a sample letter to Governor Tomblin. The letter supports WVEA’s Competitive Pay Campaign and asks the Governor to continue the work toward the goal of a $43,000 starting salary by 2019.
