Important info for Medicare-eligible retirees

Over the course of August and September, MTEA staff and leaders, along with leaders from the other MPS unions, met with the district regarding modifications to the active and retiree health care plans.

As a result of our talks, all Medicare-eligible retirees will move to a plan called Medicare Advantage as of January 1, 2015. This plan is a win for retirees because:

  • There is no deductible
  • Policyholders will get larger reimbursements in Medicare Part B
  • Paperwork is simplified and streamlined

Reimagining the MTEA

Please consider ways you may want to actively participate in our union in the upcoming school year and sign up now.

Re-imagine MTEA - Teaching and Learning

One key component of reinventing our union is addressing teaching and learning issues - proactively, addressing the real needs of educators.  Our classroom-focused initiatives include a new electronic newsletter, Re-Imagine.

Proud MPS Educators

We have profiles of Proud MPS Educators.  And there are literally thousands more.  Nominations are always welcome and the process is easy.

 

Highlighting the great work of educators is one of the ongoing components of the MPS Children's Campaign our union launched this spring.  Subscribe here for campaign updates.

Requesting a Substitute Teacher

To report an absence and request a substitute teacher, please go to aesopeducation.com or call 1-800-942-3767.

 

For technical support, pin or ID number, or problems with Aesop, teachers should email 565@milwaukee.k12.wi.us or call the MPS/Aesop message center at 773-9937.

How Substitute Teachers Access Aesop 

Read information on the district's new automated system for obtaining assignments.

Need an Attorney for Non-MPS Legal Matters?

We highly recommend the firm Hawks Quindel, S.C., which our union has worked  on labor issues with since the 1960's. They offer a discount to MTEA members. Follow this link to learn more about their attorneys and the range of services they provide, including in the area of family law.
