CCS Staff Survey Now Available

This morning CCS sent out an email to all staff that contains updated feedback links for staff members.  The email subject is Time of Day Project – Staff Feedback and was sent from Dr. Beresford.

CCS has put together models, examples, videos, and FAQs.  This is a very important topic that concerns us all.  CTA encourages you to read and watch all of the information closely.  Please look at all the levels information as there is overlap.  Then take a few moments to fill out CCS’s feedback form so that ESC is receiving all of your feedback.  Please fill out these updated staff links even if you filled out the form sent to you last week.

If you have questions regarding the Time of Day Project, include those questions in your response.  CCS is updating the FAQ link to reflect your questions.

We need as many responses from educators as possible, so please share with your teammates to encourage them to comment as well.  The deadline to fill out the form is Wednesday, June 26, 2019.

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Feedback Needed

Good afternoon CCS Educators,

We hope you are enjoying your summer and getting in some well deserved relaxation.

Yesterday, CCS sent out a very important email regarding possible changes to School Times for the 2020-2021 school year.  The email subject is CCS Time of Day Project and is sent from Dr. Beresford.  CCS has put together models, examples, videos, and FAQs.  This is a very important topic that concerns us all.  CTA encourages you to read and watch all of the information closely.  Please look at all the levels information as there is overlap.  Then take a few moments to fill out CCS’s feedback form so that ESC is receiving all of your feedback.  We need as many responses from educators as possible, so please share with your teammates to encourage them to comment as well.  The deadline to fill out the form is Wednesday, June 26, 2019.

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Personal Business Days

As per our negotiated contract, teachers may use four [4] personal business days per school year. From the contract, “No reason need be given other than personal business for the use of these days and neither the form nor an Administrator may request further reason.” We understand that this is a busy time of the year. The CTA trusts in the discretion and professionalism of our teachers in the use of these contractually entitled days.

If you have any questions regarding the use of your personal business days, please reach out to the CTA.

License Renewal

Several teachers have asked about the newest hurdle to license renewal required by the State Government.   Until further guidance is provided by the state department of education, if your license is up for renewal, it is highly suggested you enter your PGP’s into LVIS as soon as possible and certainly before July 1.  While CTA opposes this type of legislation which impedes teacher license renewal, more research must be conducted and more guidance from the state must be obtained before we can determine the full impact of the new law.
