Collier County Education Association

Since 1957, the Collier County Education Association has served as the collective voice of Collier County's professional educators and as the community's staunchest advocate for the improvement of our district's public education system. 
CCEA's office staff also is responsible for serving the classroom and office assistants within our school system represented by the Collier County Association of Educational Office & Classroom Assistant Personnel (CCAEOCAP).




Since 1978, CCAEOCAP has served as the collective voice of Collier County's office and classroom support personnel. Together with the classroom teachers represented by the Collier County Education Association (CCEA), we are the community's staunchest advocates for the improvement of our district's public education system. Over the past 30 years, CCAEOCAP has expanded with the growth of the school system and now represents nearly 1,000 office and classroom education support personnel within its bargaining unit.

  • 90 percent say teachers are NOT the problem in our schools.
  • Two-thirds say teachers are paid too little.
