All NJEA members who are not classroom teachers or active supportive (ESP) members must identify themselves in order to vote in the appropriate unit in NJEA’s spring elections. A “non-classroom teacher” is any person who is certified, where required, and a major part of whose time is spent in direct contact with students or who performs allied work that places that person on a local salary schedule for teachers.
NJEA members who were considered classroom teachers in last year’s elections, and who now consider themselves non-classroom teachers must complete and return a registration form in order to be included in the non-classroom teacher unit of representation for the spring 2021 and future elections.
Go to njea.org/NJEAelections to download the form; it must be received at the address provided on the form by Jan. 15. New members who joined in the non-classroom teacher unit do not need to complete this form.
