New Hires

NEW Members

Welcome to Santa Clara Unified School District!  

We're excited you've chosen to work in our district. We are a strong organization that believes authentic collaboration builds effective systems, which, in turn, benefits our students and families. We highly encourage each of you to join United Teachers of Santa Clara (UTSC), our local chapter of CTA and NEA. As an active member of these professional organizations, you have many members-only opportunities available to you, including student loan forgiveness, supplemental insurance plans, grants, and professional conferences. 

The UTSC Site Representative(s) or your Faculty Unit Representatives (i.e., SLP, Nurses, etc.) at each site are available to assist you throughout the school year. In the meantime, if you have any questions or need specific assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me by calling our UTSC Office at 408-320-9197 or by sending an e-mail to our office manager, Rachna Bhatt, at

We are here to support and encourage all of our UTSC members and new hires.  You have selected a great district to start or continue your teaching career!

Wishing you all the best,

Margie Wysocki

UTSC President
