President's Corner


A Message from your CSA President, Ernest logan

Welcome to the Council of School Supervisors and Administrators’ Web site. We hope the site serves you well as leaders of New York City schools. As teachers, you were members of one of the most important professions that exist in our democracy, preparing our children to become enlightened and productive members of a free society. In your leadership role, you are charged with the additional responsibility of shaping an education vision for the entire school community. We are proud to represent and serve you in this inspiring role.

We know you feel both exhilarated and challenged in your leadership position. To support you, CSA constantly works to ensure that you earn competitive salaries and benefits and enjoy working conditions that foster success.

To be aware of all your rights, we urge you to be actively involved in your union. If you don’t have time to become engaged at this point, refer to this Web site regularly to keep up to date on all the information you need to do your job. This is where you will get much needed information including more details on your many benefits.

CSA contacts you on a regular basis. Please read the Member Updates we send to you each week, and contact us with any questions you have. I look forward to meeting you in your schools and at CSA’s many special events.
