In Nevda

subs need 60 units of college credit in anything, a clean record (fingerprint check), etc. and $180 for a teaching license. That's the same price as a regular teaching license although the pay...

Contract violation?

" But, what they can't do, per my contract is change my schedule and not notify me, which they never did. "

If the district violates your contract, you have a possible labor action. Is it worth...

you are not alone

do a search for "school ransomware attack" and see a long listing of school districts and colleges dealing with cyberattacks.

I guess insurance inspections

One of my schools

had a cloak room too, but we never wore cloaks--I'm not THAT old!

But it was a fine place to go for time out--called "have a think." I wasn't adventurous enough to try on the other kids' coats or...
