CTA Membership demonstrates a commitment to work with colleagues to strengthen our profession to ensure the success of every student. Your involvement gives you access to benefits, valuable resources, professional development opportunities, and the power to make positive changes.
CTA serves as an important community center and as the political voice of all Orange County Public School teachers and allied professionals. We speak out with a strong, united voice to rise above the voices of those who profit from our professionals and work to silence the voices of the teachers. Your voice joins the voices of over 7,575 members of the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association, 145,000 members of the Florida Education Association, 1.7 million members in the American Federation of Teachers and 3 million members in the National Educators Association.
CTA leadership is committed to working respectfully with the school district, parents, nonprofits, businesses and other unions to build a movement for the public good by supporting and pushing key social issues that impact every community member and every one of our students. Members advocate for improved learning and teaching conditions in Orange County Public Schools. We know that teachers' working conditions determine students' learning conditions. Students cannot be first if teachers' interests are not prioritized as well.
