The role of a Faculty Representative mainly consists of the following: Communication and liaison for the teachers of their site, recruitment and retention of LTA members, and representation and negotiation for said members. Reps also pickup and distribute materials to teachers when announcements are made, which can include elections, meetings, events, and special incentives. Distribution can include posting LTA materials on the local school communications board as well as placing items in each individual teacher’s box.

The ideal Site Rep is:

• Responsible, trustworthy, responsive, and has integrity
• Available/accessible to members
• Unbiased, objective, & noncombative
• Professional, ethical, friendly, fair, and firm
• Courageous & outspoken, but a great listener
• Attends and participates in all LTA Rep Meetings
• Active in CTA/NEA activities and conferences
• Caring and sensitive to members’ concerns and responds quickly to them
• Communicates effectively and timely on LTA issues & developments
• Is the voice of the Teachers
• Analyzes situations
• Perseveres
• Knows, understands, & represents the contract
• Knowledgeable of CBA

Site reps attend local LTA meetings once a month in order to stay up-to-date on events and issues, as well as inform Executive Board members of any concerns or issues they have within their schools. Reps also convene school-based meetings on a regular basis–not just when there are issues–so they can inform members of local events as well as report back to members on the Rep Council meeting occurrences.
Below are the Site Reps for each individual school site within the Lynwood Unified School District (LUSD). If you see a vacancy within your school and would like more information on potentially filling that vacancy, please reach out to the LTA Office by emailing ltaoffice@lynwoodta.org.
