•  Update: June 1, 2020

    PAT members who are eligible for the PPS Work Share program are working a reduced schedule. A reduced schedule means you are not expected to work during the time you have reduced hours. All eligible employees will have their schedules reduced by 20% per week. If you typically work 5 days a week, this means you will not work on Fridays.  

     

    Your weekly hours will be reduced by 20%, and your workload necessarily will be reduced. Please work with your supervisor on questions about how this reduction will affect your workload.

     

    Work expectations and compensation are adjusted accordingly.

     

    PAT members who are not eligible for the PPS Work Share program continue working their full hours and should discuss their schedule with their supervisor. 

     

    PAT Members


    March 20, 2020 


    Work expectations:
     
    The district and PAT are actively collaborating on developing remote professional development opportunities and how to provide educational supports to students during the closure. 

    Earlier today you received a survey regarding your ability to work remotely or in alternative capacities. This survey will inform the district’s direction on providing PD and educational support to students. 

    Online Professional Development will begin Monday, March 30. You are not expected to work during the week of Spring Break, March 23-27. A variety of resources are available to you online at pps.net/teacher and will be updated on a regular basis. Additional details will be emailed to you prior to March 30.

     

    Compensation: 
    As previously communicated, you will be paid for your regularly scheduled days and hours of work during the announced closure. This includes PAT temporary teachers.

    As indicated above, beginning on March 30, educators will be expected to engage in professional development and, sometime later that week or the following, provide the educational supports that are currently being developed in compliance with the Governor’s executive order.  If you are unable to work beginning March 30 through the closure, you should communicate that promptly to your supervisor.

    Your health benefits will be maintained as per usual through this closure.
