Reporting Instructions for Election Day: Select School-Based Staff
School buildings across the city will be used as polling sites on Election Day, November 3. To support health and safety measures, all DOE school-based staff will work remotely on Election Day, except school safety agents, food service personnel, and custodial and facilities staff, who must still report to their schools for in-person work; DOE meal hubs will remain open. Charter schools and community-based organization (CBO) programs follow their own schedule, and may still report to school buildings.
Since November 3 is an instructional day for students, pedagogical and supervisory staff should continue to perform their educational duties remotely. Staff without instructional or related duties that can be performed remotely may support with students and/or family outreach, or be assigned to complete mandatory trainings and/or professional learning webinars. Some examples include:
Complete Annual Bloodborne Pathogens Compliance Procedures, as announced in the September 10 edition of Principals Digest.
Mandatory Webinar about Sexual Harassment and Anti-Discrimination Policies, as announced in the October 9 edition of Principals Digest;
Professional learning regarding school culture climate, such as the Trauma-Informed Care professional learning series, as announced in the October 15 edition of Principals Digest.
