About Us

The Irvine Teachers Association is a nonprofit organization committed to quality public education and active community involvement. Founded in 1973, ITA now represents over 1,670 education professionals who are deeply committed to the success of our students and the integrity of the teaching profession. With an active elected president and executive board who advocate on behalf of our members, we strive to improve teaching and learning conditions for the ultimate success of each and all of our learners. In a cooperative partnership of parents, principals, elected leaders and community organizations, we support teaching professionals by providing advocacy, professional development opportunities, and volunteerism.

The primary purpose of this association shall be to represent its members in their relations with their employer, and to seek to be the exclusive representative of appropriate units of school employees in all matters relating to employment conditions and employer-employee relations including: but not limited to wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment.
