Pissed at my leave replacement!

I got an email today that my leave replacement used my Scholastic points (3500 of them to buy books for herself.) she has my login and password to have access to the website and the resources. But I did not give her permission to use my points. I am volunteering at a warehouse sale next week where I can use my points and now I have zero! Those are points Iíve accumulated for years for my own purchases.

This is wrong, right? I would never use someoneís account to buy something for myself, whether itís real cash or points.

Ugh, Iím very bothered.

Wow! I can't believe someone could actually do that with a clear conscience. Can you ask her about it. Although I don't even know if it would help.

Thatís theft. Iíd ask your P what steps you can take, including calling HR and filing a report. Maybe email her so you have everything in writing and ask her for the monetary value of those points.

Iím going to try to cancel it through Scholastic first. Then email her that I cancelled it because those are my points and she can repurchase them with her own money.

Ok, Iím glad Iím not overreacting. My mom didnít think it was a big deal but sheís not a teacher lol

Itís like using my credit card points to go on a vacation. It is stealing in my opinion.

I emailed scholastic saying I did not make the order and to cancel it and also emailed the teacher asking her if she made the order. Hopefully it was by accident but if I remmeber correctly you have to deliberately click it use points.

That is very, very wrong and I'm glad you're contacting Scholastic.

No way could she intentionally do that in good conscience.

She really did that?!?!? Itís out and out theft if she did it on purpose. If you canít cancel the order, I would file a police report and ask for full compensation.

This is stealing and I would leave a review of her sub services and illegal acts at the district office.

Why does she have access to your account in the first place? I would never allow someone else to have that permission.

Definitely cancel if you can.

Agreed!

I have let my subs use my scholastic account to view the online resources for scholastic news. If one of them went into my bookclub and used my points I would FLIP OUT.

Wow! That takes a lot of nerve. I hope Scholastic cancels the order for you and gives you the points back.

I would definitely call her out on it. Then, I would change my password so she no longer has access.

Iíd actually
Call Scholastic and talk to someone in person. Their customer service is great. If you explain the situation they can probably push the cancellation through.

Do you know the sub did it or do you suspect she did? Wouldn't the books be mailed to you? Obviously, I don't do the Scholastic thing, so I don't have insight into how it all works.

I have different passwords for scholastic news and book club account. Be aware if you have a stored credit card on your account too.

She's not wrong if two conditions are met. One, she's ordering them to keep in the school. Two, you got those points through parents orders. I never did Scholastic as my classes never bought anything. I always got my own books cheaper through other sources (including second hand). I have seen rewards taken away from teachers because they got those points threw student orders.

Isn't that the whole purpose? Kids order books and teachers rack up points from those orders?

I donít think she should be allowed to order books for my class with my points. Itís points that have accumulated from me spending my personal money. I have been saving them and often use them to buy Christmas books for my students or to stock my library.

We do not get many orders from parents. There were maybe $15 spent from a parent last year.

Like GreyhoundGirl said, Scholastic has great customer service. They will cancel the order if you call them in time.

I also have very few student orders and put in my own orders (albeit usually for classroom books) to get more freebies. You can't beat those $1 books! It doesn't matter how many student orders we have. The bonus points are a reward for the teachers who spend the time making the program work. Some teachers don't bother.

Apparently, you can even get fired if it's deemed you misused them.

What?! No, it's stealing. Those points belong to the teacher to use as the teacher sees fit, not as someone else who happens to work at the same school sees fit. Scholastic is pretty clear that points belong to a teacher not a school.

Mrs.Wok is the one who gets to decide how those points should be used.

Scholastic might not do anything for you because you gave her your user id and password. She did not obtain access fraudulently.

Thanks for the feedback. I confronted her. She called Scholastic herself and cancelled the order. I should get all my points back.

Glad you’ll get your points back!

Curious... what was her “excuse” for using your points?

She said she didnít realize it was my account, thought it was hers. I guess itís possible. I just checked and all my points are back.

Super lame excuse, but at least your points are back.
Good thing you spoke with her!
