Kent Education Association

The mission of the KEA is to promote, advance and protect the rights and interests of our members and the education profession. The outcome of our advocacy is quality education for all students

Your health and well-being, and that of your families, students and communities remains our top priority. As a result, the KEA Office will be closed until further notice. KEA Governance and Staff continue to work and advocate on your behalf, from their homes. Response times may be delayed, so please be patient.

  • The Results are in....

    KEA’s election of delegates to both the WEA and NEA Representative Assemblies closed on Friday, January 28th. We are able to take all the WEA candidates to WEA’s RA this year as we had fewer people run than we are allowed to send. Similarly, all candidates that ran for NEA RA will be sent.

    Congratulations to our WEA delegates: Chase Parsley, Reby Parsley, Brett Allen, Eric Andersen, Nicole Harris, Alicia Gray, Ruthie Smith, Marissa Winmill, Shermanita Jones, Natalie Bachman, Edyte Parsons, Alison Moore, Steve Goliff, Michael Lewis, Brian Thornton, Vaudery Brown, Tabitha Plotke, Patrick Darby, Denise Renteria, Nicole Parks, Denton Thorbeck, Jesse McMorris, Jessica Justice and Teresa Linders.

    Congratulations to our NEA Delegates: Brett Allen, Nicole Harris, Shermanita Jones, Ruthie Smith, Edyte Parsons, Alison Moore, Vaudery Brown, Michael Lewis and Jessica Justice.

  • Calendar Update

    Very soon, KEA will send out the calendar options for you to vote on for the 2022-2023 school year. The ballot will again be sent to your home email. KEA is aware that other bargaining units have already sent the calendars out for a vote. If you have seen them, please disregard. When KEA received the calendars originally, we saw that there were mistakes, and didn't want to send them out until we could get an explanation. Unfortunately, other bargaining units will need to rerun their votes now that KSD has corrected the calendars.

    Please keep in mind that KEA did not build either calendar option that is being presented. KEA created and provided KSD with multiple options, but none of the options were chosen. Instead, KSD created their own options with the only calendar decision being whether you want a shorter winter break with a long February break, or a long winter break, and a short February break. Everything else is pretty much the same.
