I am happy to report that air test results are back from Doherty High. Levels are safe in the classrooms and common areas tested. We are very pleased and relieved with these results. We continue to meet with administration to develop a binding Operation and Management Plan.
The Contract Action Team is up and running. Fifty people have signed up to be active members. Ten to fifteen members have participated in meetings to develop a plan of action to support negotiations. If you are interested in participating in this process please contact Beth or myself.
Also, Elementary start time for teachers is 10 minutes before the start of the day for students. If your administrator is requiring you to be at school earlier than the 10 minutes, for duties, etc., this is a violation of your contract and you need to contact the EAW.
Keep your Schoolspring account updated. It is critical that information be accurate and current in your account. This process will enable you to apply for after-school positions and summer school positions more efficiently.
Personnel files should be reviewed regularly, perhaps every two years. Please call or email the Human Resource department to make an appointment.
Powerful teaching and learning can only take place in Safe and Healthy schools. Safe and healthy schools are at the forefront of the EAW priority list.
Stay tuned for summer schedules of events and activities!
Yours in solidarity,
