New Partnership Announced between the Association of American Educators and the Georgia Charter Schools Association
Alexandria, VA – The Association of American Educators (AAE) and the Georgia Charter Schools Association (GCSA) are proud to announce a new partnership to support Georgia's talented charter school educators. AAE, the premier national, professional association for educators, will offer teachers and other employees of GCSA member schools full AAE membership at a low monthly rate in an effort to advance best practices and advocacy opportunities for public charter school teachers in Georgia.
"We are pleased to partner with GCSA to provide professional membership and benefits to this group of dedicated 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 Georgia."
Through this partnership, teachers and support staff at GCSA member schools are invited to join AAE for $16.50 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 and advancing 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 low monthly rate."
AAE's partnership with GCSA is just the latest in a series of formal partnerships with charter school associations in Florida, Indiana, New Jersey, and Utah. Alongside unmatched professional benefits, AAE's services and vision for educators continues to resonate with the charter community nationwide.
GCSA Chief Executive Officer Tony Roberts 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 Georgia's charter schools with this new program offering quality professional benefits to our individual educators."
