Tackboard, the VSTA newsletter, is produced and distributed to all secondary teachers on a monthly basis from September to June. The newsletter is designed to meet the needs of the VSTA members; therefore, it contains information on an array of subjects, ranging from the VTF Collective Agreement to the President’s message to current news about the state of public education and its implications for local 39. In addition to our usual paper copies distributed to members, a link to the latest version of Tackboard will be emailed via Campaigner.
