My principal sent me a new Danielson guide for distance learning, observed me in my virtual classroom and sent me comments based on this new framework. Are these observations evaluative? DeBlasio also argued that distance learning is inherently less good than classroom instruction and that a prolonged absence from school will widen learning deficits. The agreement also prohibits headteachers from persuading teachers to broadcast their classes live on-site in order to teach children remotely. In addition to the usual contractual arrangements (for example. B start/end hours and parent teacher lectures). The following points in the joint learning agreements are among those that can be changed through SBO: pedagogical coordination, preparation schedules, office hours, teaching meals, workday, class size, teaching programs and teaching methods (personally mixed, mixed and completely distant). Schools cannot, among other things, change the length of the day of instruction for students. The DOE has accepted these size limitations, which is why schools must respect these limits. In many cases, the mixed learning model requires more teachers than traditional learning. Administrators were asked to ask for additional teachers to customize enough mixed learning. If you have any doubts, discuss with your Leader or District Representative the submission of an operating report. If your Chapter Leader has filed an operational complaint about this, it is already on the list of complaints that the union is asking the DOE to resolve. Under the agreement, these housing units are only considered in schools that need to occupy more distance positions.
Under the pressure of the pandemic, we have developed a strategy to combine distance learning and people, a flexible system in which a team of educators will work with a certain group of students. But even with this approach, many schools will still face a shortage of staff that the system must address. If I work on-site in a school with students, can I be invited to broadcast my classes live to distant students? Read the DOE guide to mixed and distance learning rollers. The manual states that schools must give priority to teachers, who are the primary facilitators of family members with underlying medical conditions, for open and isolated learning positions. Under the Joint Learning Agreement, every effort must be made to assign teacher classes to a modality: remote, remote or in person, but can program teachers in several ways (for example. B, program breakdown, etc.). If the school-wide curriculum design is based on teachers who teach on a mixed basis, they must use the SBO process. Is it possible to assign a bridge class to a teacher if it is not the usual practice of the school? If no agreement can be reached to bring the program to an SBO vote, the school must be programmed in accordance with the mixed learning agreements. But the procedure for authorizing workarounds could take time if there is a disagreement between the principal and the teachers. The measures taken in this regard are described in a 12-piece memo and require that at least 55% of union members vote in support. If union members and administrators cannot reach an agreement, they can ask their superintendent and the school district representative for help in finding a solution.
Some schools, for example, require students to learn on virtual platforms, even if they are in school buildings, or ask educators to teach a mix of students to distant people and students at different times of the day.
