PRESIDENT COMMUNIQUE #5

COVID-19

 
 

Friday 3/20/2020 - four (4) days of work at home under your belts. Some are more tired now than they were when in their classroom. I hope you are all healthy and in good spirits. Please take a deep breath and allow processing of these unprecedented times. You have done a great job with such short notice and will no doubt continue to do so.

Please note, we are working on a MOU with the district around COVID-19 work/contractual related issues

Paul and I had a meeting with Dr. Mafi, Jason Bevacqua and Jesus Vazquez today. Here's what was discussed and answers we were given.

K-6 Daily Schedules:

  • You can put your 30 minutes of weekly release time in your weekly schedule (this is for when you would have had music.)
  • If you are taking a training on 'how to' (education related) you can put that in your schedule towards your working time.
  • Admin contact through Zoom, or another platform, once per day. This could end up being once a week.
  • 3 weeks of plans were developed around repetition practice and no new learning. There will be a transition from review to new learning to be detailed in a later communication by the district.


Changes from what was:

  • devices will be given out to those students who need them
  • cable hot spots have been created
  • mailers to homes will go out listing internet options
  • District is not sure if teachers are going to have to go back in to sites
  • More flexibility to your schedules (other than the designated time with students and your admin) As long as you can account for your required hours of work for that day, it doesn't matter what time you fulfill them
  • District FAQs will be coming out weekly - many will be based upon input GGEA gives the district

GGEA will continue its efforts to advocate for our members. Please share with your co-workers in case they are not receiving this

Take care of yourselves, your families, and get some rest.

~Strength in Unity,

Kelly Nolan
GGEA President
