COVID-19 Updates

 

Good evening GTA,

 

Two weeks ago we learned that our schools were closing and that we must ‘shelter in place.’  In that time, you have done a tremendous job of working together to continue to provide opportunities to our students, submitting GUSD Reads! Videos, ensuring our colleagues are safe, and inspiring acts of kindness and positivity through #findyourhappy.  What an incredible community of educators we have!

 

During those same two weeks your GTA Team has been working diligently each and every day.  Attending every webinar and teleconference possible, watching all government press conferences, gathering information, answering questions and bargaining to ensure your safety and working conditions.  This is your membership at work!  

 

Late yesterday, GTA and GUSD signed the COVID-19 Distance Learning GUSD-GTA 3-26-20 MOU (searchable version here).  Please note, this MOU does not include preschool.  The Preschool Distance Learning MOU is in the process of being created.

 

COVID-19 Distance Learning FAQ

While we highly encourage all members to thoroughly read the MOU in its entirety, GTA understands it is a lot of information to unpack.  We have created an FAQ in hopes that it will help answer questions.  

 

Time Claims

  • Please submit (scan/picture on phone) time claims for work completed to Paul Winslow.

 

Resources

 

Again, I would like to thank the GTA Negotiations Team along with the GUSD Team.  Everyone has worked very hard creating a comprehensive Distance Learning model in a very short amount of time.  Please do not hesitate to send your questions our way. We are here to help.

 

Enjoy your weekend,

 

Lindsay & Team
