The Grossmont Education Association (GEA) protects the rights, safeguards due process, and provides for equal treatment of all members. The Association represents the interests of its members while negotiating with the district for compensation, benefits and work conditions through collective bargaining. GEA is a strong, cohesive, and mutually supportive group of over 800 professional educators at 9 comprehensive high schools and other programs. These educators work together at the site level and communicate district-wide through a representative council. GEA members are dedicated to the academic success and positive personal development of their students – over 21,000 of them.
