DATE: Thursday, September 26, 2019
TIME: 7:30 am
LOCATION: Education Building Room 219
Call to Order at 7:30am by Wendy Hall
New Superintendent Dr. Pringle Hairston
2019-20 Executive Team Members
Questions and Concerns
-TA’s being told on Fridays that they we will Sub on Monday
-Principals not communicating CAC meeting dates
-Leave for the day instead of getting Comp time during faculty meeting
-Contact NCAE Rep about any concerns
-Suggestion Meet 1 on 1 with all classified Employees in your school
-TA’s require having a 2 year degree, pay does not reflect that.
-TA compensation when riding the bus.
Points of interest
-Are financial secretaries putting in for sub pay when paraprofessionals sub for that teacher. Also why isn’t there sub pay for a paraprofessional when they sub half day?
-If a person was hired at the bottom end of their pay grade why can’t they ever move up to the median amount. Example Hired at $1,000 but the range is $1,000-$3,000 for that pay grade.
-Can we ever get a definitive role for paras? For example: Data managers being asked to do bus lot duty. (we need to find the policy that states at the bottom of job description that states principal can ask you to do what is needed at school.)
-New people are being hired and making more than veteran employees.
If you are being asked to put in “workshop” on your timesheet. You shouldn’t have to use your own leave.
-Paras are wondering why they are being pulled so much to cover other rooms. Some are being asked to cover a room on Friday for Monday and the office not even waiting the weekend to see if a sub on Aesop picks up the job.
ERD and Trainings:
-ERD’s being not seen as beneficial to classroom paras.
Can policy be changed to being able to use Annual Leave or comp time on these days, if beneficial training isn’t offered.
-Can a training in de-escalation of a hostile parent be offered?
-We hear several complaints regarding the Evaluation process.
-Some have stated that they don’t even see their evaluation.
-What is the evaluation for since pay isn’t affect by whether you get a good evaluation or bad evaluation?
Closing Remarks Dr. Angela Hairston Prinlge, the new district Supeintendent
