March 2012


As a reminder, it was decided that one email will be sent out each month with a list of activities and information to share during that month.  This will allow each local to share the information following a timeline that best works for its local.  Please be aware that you may receive additional emails if a Town Hall or other events come to our attention.


Dear Fellow TALI Activist:

Melinda Person joined the steering committee at our February 28 meeting. 

Some highlights:



Calendar of Events: 

  1. This is as an FYI…we are not asking for you to attend (especially since it is the same night as the Contiguous ED) but in case you are interested:
    "Advocating For Our Public Schools; A Long Island Treasure"
    Join Gary Bixhorn and your colleagues from the L.I. educational community for an informative evening as we examine the strengths of the Public School system on Long Island which support our students in becoming upwardly mobile in their academic and career goals.
    Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - 6:00 - 8:00pm, Wang Center, Stony Brook University
    Zodiac Lobby
    Free for PDK @ SBU members; all others will contribute $10 to the PDK Scholarship Fund.  Light refreshments will be served.
    Membership applications may be found on-line at:
    •   Spring Meeting for all TALI Members April 19, 2012
    •   County-Wide Community Education Week Plan by Rally Committee April 30-May 5:  This information is in the process of being formalized but mark your calendars now!

                                                                  i.      Dance schools, gymnastics, after-school programs, shopping centers, fields, etc.

  1. One side of the flyer will be common issues impacting all Nassau Schools, the other side will have specific issues to the district (loss of programs, increase in class sizes, if budgets fail = 0% etc.)


It is unfortunate that with the coming of spring we also have our most difficult time…budgets, board elections, contract and APPR negotiations.  Although our union is struggling right now, we must stay united and work to strengthen our house together. 


In Unity,

Tomia and Arthur
