New Partnership Announced between the Association of American Educators and the Florida Charter School Alliance
Alexandria, VA – The Association of American Educators (AAE) and the Florida Charter School Alliance (FCSA) are pleased to announce a new partnership to support Florida's dedicated charter school educators. AAE, the premier national, professional association for educators, will offer teachers and other employees of FCSA member schools full AAE membership at a low monthly rate in an effort to advance professional development and advocacy opportunities for public charter school teachers in Florida.
"We are proud to partner with FCSA to provide professional membership and benefits to this group of talented charter school educators," said AAE Executive Director Gary Beckner. "This partnership is a critical step in giving both organizations the tools to better support charter school teachers in Florida."
Through this partnership, teachers and support staff at FCSA member schools are invited to join AAE for $15 per month. AAE members receive excellent professional benefits and services, including a $2 million liability insurance policy, as well as a united policy voice on supporting the charter school movement both statewide and nationally.
"Educators need the peace of mind that comes with solid protection so that they can focus on students in the classroom," said Beckner. "As an advocate for all educators, we firmly believe that no teacher should be without individual professional liability insurance. AAE provides this and much more at a fraction of the cost."
AAE's partnership with FCSA is just the latest in a series of formal partnerships with charter school associations in Utah, Indiana, and New Jersey. Alongside unmatched professional benefits, AAE's services and vision for educators continues to resonate with the charter community nationwide.
FCSA President Cheri Shannon praised the partnership, stating, "Our alignment with AAE allows us to expand our level of support for our charter teachers across the state. We are thrilled to expand our network of resources for Florida's charter schools with this new program offering quality professional benefits to our individual educators."
