of Focus Magazine


As we reach out to the community for support on everything from district policy decisions to state ballot initiatives, it is important for the community to understand that CSEA members have spent eight decades taking care of our public schools and students. That’s why we’re asking you to help us communicate directly with the leaders of your local school and community by signing them up for a subscription to Focus Magazine. CSEA's official publication covers important issues affecting California’s schools, community colleges and classified employees.

Please take a moment to subscribe any supportive local school board members, PTA leaders, teachers, union presidents and community leaders. Be sure to tell everyone whose name you submit that they will begin receiving the magazine. Taking the time to do this will help build relationships with your local leaders and alert them to be on the lookout for the next Focus Magazine.

It is not necessary to include CSEA members in the subscription request; Focus is sent to them as part of their membership. If you are a member who has not been receiving Focus, we may not have your correct address on file. For questions, contact Katherine Miller in the CSEA Communications Department at (800) 632-2128, ext. 1217.
