From Nick's Minutes on Mulgrew's report:
Calendar: the sacred calendar that never comes out. Was just on the phone, DOE has finally sent up the calendar for approval to the state education department. Hope to be finished shortly. Once out, we’ll send it out, and SBOs will kick right in. Ridiculous that bureaucracy gets in the way of calendars getting out.
June 9th guidance, it will be treated the same way as election day. In consultation, DOE agreed that it would be a virtual day unless it’s actually necessary to bring people in.
32,400 people filled out contract survey, those results will go negotiating committee. Gonna bring people in again for that June 15th.
Mike Schirtzer: 3 questions, and please also address at DA.
(1) Can we move forward SBOs on scheduling.
(2) Are we included on the new state guidance on appealing regents scores.
(3) APPR, is our district included.
Michael Mulgrew: Chapter leaders like to do SBOs all at one time. Debra P. says we’re ready to go once the pilot workday is out. As for questions 2 and 3, we haven’t heard from DOE yet, but hopefully will hear on Wednesday. I did sign for the waiver for APPR, and we just need to see where they are. We both have to agree; we both have veto power. It’s up to the school districts, not the teachers union.
Translation: We are one of the weakest unions around and we have no leverage on the city-DOE.
