The association has met with district administrators to discuss the ramifications of the current school closures. For the days announced, all members will be receiving full pay and insurance benefits. If you have already put in for a sub for next week, please be sure to cancel that request.
The district is seeking to add five days to the end of the school year. The Association understands the need for restoring instructional time and offered several options that we feel are more instructionally meaningful and do not impact the end of the school year. For example, extending the instructional day by 30 minutes, eliminating late starts, and/or eliminating C and I days/S and A days.
We are working together with the district to find a response that meets the needs of our members and our students.
