We understand our employees have a lot of questions. We have created the following FAQ for employees. To submit questions, please click on the green "Submit Questions or Suggestions" button, then use the "Employee Inquiry" button on the "Let's Talk" page.
Instructional staff members will report virtually on Friday, March 27, 2020 for a four-hour training on the topic of distance learning and digital resources. Participation and completion will be monitored by each school’s administration. Additional information regarding this training and how to access it will be sent in the coming days.
Monday, March 30, 2020, will still be considered a teacher planning day, however teachers will be working virtually to complete their 3rd quarter grading, report card functions, and other planning day activities.
(Below is a more complete list of when employees are expected to return to work.)
Any teacher who needs access to their school to gather materials may do so – at the earliest – on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, when administrators will report to their school campuses. You will be expected to quickly enter campus, gather what you need, and depart campus. All such visits should be conducted prior to 10:00 a.m.
The District intends to pay all regular full and part-time employees as we normally would for both the March 20, 2020, and April 3, 2020 paychecks.
For those employees specifically assigned to work during the week of Spring Break or the week following (March 14 through March 29), you will be entitled to additional compensation/emergency pay at your hourly rate for actual time worked during this period. This will be in addition to the normal wages that are being paid to all employees during this same time period.
Please note, that while instructional staff members who participate in the distance learning training on March 27, 2020, will be entitled to this additional compensation, those who participate on or after the March 30, 2020, planning day would not.
Yes. It is extremely important for the employees who are called to return to work prior to March 30, 2020, to accurately report their hours worked in Time Clock Plus. Hourly employees working during this time period should be clocking in and out as they normally do, and exempt/salaried staff should be entering their hours worked on their digital time sheet.
Exempt/salaried employees should enter time on the Time Clock Plus Timesheet. The current plan is to use these Time Clock Plus records to initiate payment of additional compensation/emergency pay. We will be unable to re-create these time records after the fact, so if you have a question or issue with reporting your time, please contact your worksite supervisor for assistance.
At this time, it is unclear whether the state will require us to make up the lost instructional time that comes with the second week of closure. We are closely monitoring the situation and we will communicate further with staff as we learn more.
Below is a more complete list of the dates that employees are expected to return to work.
Due to high call volume, we recommend email or live text chat for fastest results.
In this week's newsletter you will find additional information about the instructional training on Friday as well as important information as we prepare to launch of 75,000 student Prek-12 virtual school next week.
