– Can teachers be required to go to their sites before an off-campus meeting to make sure a substitute has shown up?
ONLY IF YOU ARE PAID MILEAGE TO TRAVEL FROM YOUR WORK SITE TO THE MEETING AND YOU ARE EITHER PAID FOR ADDITIONAL TIME IN YOUR DAY OR YOU ARE EXCUSED FROM BEING ON TIME AT THE OFF CAMPUS SESSION.
Do meetings called by site admin have to be for professional learning (PL)? NO Does our contract state that teacher have a minimal number of hours spent on professional learning?
NO. THE CBA STATES THAT BOTH PL AND AC MEETINGS ARE PART OF THE 54 HOURS OF MEETINGS ADMINSTRATION SCHEDULES.
What happens to the money deducted from a teacher’s salary when they are out on a long term medical leave?
NOTHING. IF A SUB IS NOT ASSIGNED, THE MONEY WILL NOT BE PAID TO ANOTHER PERSON. THIS DEDUCTION IS PART OF ED CODE AND IS MANDATED.
THE RATIO WILL BE 1:24 EFFECTIVE 2014 – 2015. BUT REMEMBER, THIS IS A RATIO, NOT A HARD CLASS SIZE CAP.
AUGMENTATION AIDES ARE NOT SPOKEN TO FOR K-3 CLASSES.
THE EXTENSION OF THE C.O.R.E. WAIVER WAS APPROVED BY THE FEDERAL DOE.
I HAVE NO DOCUMENTATION AS TO WHAT THE DISTRICT IS DOING IN THIS MATTER. I HAVE TO ASSUME THAT THEY ARE FUNCTIONING UNDER THE C.O.R.E. WAIVER GUIDELINES AS THEY PERTAIN TO THE CBA.
NO. BARGAINING WILL NOT BEGIN UNTIL THE SPRING.
NO, BUT WE SUGGEST THAT TEACHERS DECLINE WORKING FOR LESS THAN THEIR PER DIEM RATE OF PAY.
OTHER THAN AN AUGMENTATION AIDE, YES.
TK teachers are being told that they will have to do their hours for the column V addition through their meetings, is this true?
I HAVE NO INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WILL BE ALLOWED SPECIAL FOR TK TEACHERS.
YES, ED CODE 48910 SPECIFICIES THE OFFENSES AND PROCESS. BASICALLY, THE TEACHER MUST NOTIFY THE ADMINISTRATION; THEY MUST CALL THE PARENT OVERNIGHT FOR A MEETING TO DISCUSS THE ISSUES WITH THE CHILD; ADMIN CAN NOT RETURN THE STUDENT TO THE CLASS WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE TEACHER UNTIL AFTER THE SUSPENSION THE TEACHER HAS IMPOSED.
