UNINSURED COWORKERS We all know coworkers who dont belong to any teaching organization. They need to be encouraged to join one of them (hopefully A+PEL) if only for the insurance coverage. If they say they cant afford it, ask if they would be able to afford being sued because their home insurance will not cover them and their school board only covers a small amount (if any). (Dues are prorated for the second semester.) Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana Jefferson Davis Parish Chapter LEGAL MATTERS Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana provides full legal services and professional assistance to its members. The Director of Professional and Legal Services and the A+PEL staff review matters of concern to members, make recommendations, and if necessary, assign attorneys to individual cases. If members prefer to use an attorney of their own choosing, A+PEL will endorse that choice. Attorney fees are paid by A+PEL in keeping with existing insurance provisions. Members with questions or in need of assistance should contact: Polly Broussard, Director of Legal Services, (800) or Tuesday, Jan. 10th 3:30 PM Greens Café 603 State Street, Jennings Flyer for value added program.
