Welcome

Welcome to the District 214 Education Association (EA) website.

The EA represents the certified employees (teachers, counselors, non-classroom personnel, nurses, and specialists) of Township High School District 214, the second largest high school district in Illinois.

We are 860 members strong. More than two-thirds of our members hold advanced degrees. In addition, more than half of our members both teach and coach. Leveraging this wealth of talent and expertise for the benefit of our students and community is our number one priority.

The results of our efforts are paying huge dividends to those we serve. In the last four years, teachers have worked hard to reduce the number of student failures and to encourage every student to take on a challenging curriculum. Over 90 percent of our students attend a two-year or four-year college after graduation. More than half of our students also receive college credits while still in high school through Advanced Placement courses, Project Lead the Way, and community college extension programs.

The EA continues to work with the District 214 School Board to create a system that is responsive to the needs of students, our communities, and our own families. The EA values the positive work environment that has been created through a strong partnership between the teachers, administration, and School Board. Collectively, we are making a difference in the lives of our students and in our communities.

The EA website has been developed to communicate critical information and promote positive personal relationships among the membership. The EA website will also help members share information about new educational opportunities available to the students in District 214.

Thanks for visiting.

A Day Without Immigrants - Suggestion for School Policy

Dr. Schuler is waiting to review an Executive Order the President has indicated he will be signing next week before sending out correspondence on the issue of deportation and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

He states, "Our students deserve to be safe in our schools. Several years ago, I directed our buildings to not let ICE come into the buildings without a court order. It would be my intent for that to continue."
