UCN Red Flags For Education 

On Saturday March 4, 2023 at 11am, UCN is hosting "Red Flags For Education"  in Carson City. With this project, attendees will be placing red flags on the lawn of the Nevada Legislative Building. Each flag will serve as a reminder to Legislators and the community that educators are engaged in the fight for public education. If you'll be in the area, you are invited to attend and add your red flag for education!

Take Action Powerline

On Thursday, March 9, 2023, the Assembly Committee on Government Affairs will be hearing Assembly Bill 222, an NSEA priority bill. This is a bill that creates fairness for our education support professionals, and we need your help to tell the Assembly why they should support this bill.

What does Assembly Bill 222 do for ESPs? 

AB222 seeks to correct an inequity that exists for educators by allowing ESPs to receive a full year of PERS service credit for working at least 8 months of the school year. 

Why should the Legislature support Assembly Bill 222

The Legislature needs to understand that ESPs play a vital role inside and outside of our classrooms. ESPs keep our schools and campuses running while ensuring students are safe, healthy, and ready to learn. With a shortage of ESPs statewide, AB222 can help with recruitment and retention as well.
