Hi, thanks for the concern, talking to the administration would do no good.
All specialists are getting pulled equally, about once every two weeks or so.
This is perfectly legal, do to the fact that a lack of substitutes is
creating an emergency situation. Some principals are even teaching classes
upon occasion. They have also recently been dividing up classes where there
is no coverage, and putting a few kids in each classroom with aniother class.
As long as they don't go over the maximum numbers, they can do that in an
emergency also.
The union is trying to do something about it but the problem is statewide in
Pennsylvania. I am our region's PAEA rep so if it was against contract, you
can be I would file a grievance. Our union is very strong.
With any luck, there will be more teachers certified in the Spring that will
be able to substitute. Right now the I.U. is training people, kinda of a
crash course in subbing, I don't agree with it , but if it alleviates the sub
problem for a while I'll be happy.
I can't see the field trip problem changing, any time soon, I will try to
approach the board with some of your suggestions, you never know !!! I love
this list !!!!! Christine :)
