Do you know what a Rice letter is? Did you see the letter from the Business Administrator on your school email? If your name is on the Board of Education agenda, you must receive notification of such — a Rice letter.
In the past, you would receive a letter in the US mail that would imply that you should be concerned because the Board was discussing the terms and conditions of your employment. However, as of February 2017, the use of the Rice letter has been expanded to include even positive discussions of your employment — i.e. a raise, a stipend, a promotion. This current letter from Gregory Brennan is YOUR NOTIFICATION for the rest of the year for any positive changes in your employment. If you ever get a Rice letter in the mail, please be concerned and contact a UTEA Building Representative immediately for advice on how to proceed.
Below is a list of the Building Head Representatives.

As the President of the UTEA, my primary goal is to keep the members informed and protected. I hope this information has been helpful, and I look forward to sharing future updates that will benefit the membership.
