Wally Watson presenting a WEA Eastern $1,000 donation check to Deputy Chris Young for Holiday Heroes Shop with a Cop event.

This yearly event will be held December 5th and will benefit 130 local families.

      Holidays & Heroes 2021

This event is nominated by CVEA President Wally Watson to be sponsored by WEA Eastern through an Outreach Grant. WEA Eastern has sponsored the efforts of  local law enforcement with $1,000 grants for many years.  This year 135 families were provided a meal, presents, and other needed items.

This is all made possible through WEA dues money.  Thank you for all of our member support of such worthy endeavors.


Professional Development Clock Hours
If you have taken professional development classes through CVSD, you must go into HRM+ and fill out the evaluation within 10 days of the completion of the class or course. Failure to do this will result in the loss of those clock hours with no chance to recover them.

Good idea to review those building files!  

It's a good practice to review your building file at least once a year to ensure that the information in it is accurate, up- to-date, and relevant to your current assignment.

For those of you who have been with the district for many years, your building file (defined as supervisory or working file in the CBA) has the potential of containing very old information that may not be particularly helpful to have around. For example, a complaint letter from one disgruntled parent 5 years ago is not likely to be reflective of your career accomplishments, so it would make sense to remove it.
