Itís that time again

I donít know why, but at 3 am my district sent the dreaded email with all the training videos we must view to be a Safe School. This woke me up! I usually have my phone off, but my DIL is ready to give birth anytime so I want to be ready.

I tried to go to sleep, but couldnít so I got up and am trying to slog through them. We canít fast forward, but Iím taking the assessment first and then letting the videos play on and on.

At least, this year we are provided some school time to complete them. In the past, weíve had to get them done within our day on top of our regular duties.

The first time through, they might teach you something, but every year, the same content is so boring and redundant. Good for you to take the quiz first. I remember doing that and taking the quizzes on my laptop. If I needed to look up any answers, I used google and my I-Pad. I also discovered I could fast forward to a certain point and move it along even faster. You couldn't do too much of it or the video would tell you your district wants you to watch the whole thing in a message box.

Thank goodness my district doesn't do this ( yet!). We watch our blood borne pathogens video at a staff mtg. All these years and I haven't watched the bloody parts yet....I look somewhere else

I'm doing mine right now! I'm a veteran teacher who's been doing these training videos for so long, I could give the training myself lol!

These things annoy me to no end. Why do we have to do it every single year? We have other things to do!! Our training videos and quizzes are over 2 hours long, and I want to get paid for that time.

I tried to fast forward through the videos, but the district set a restriction on it. Oh, well...Iím done with this nonsense for another 12 months.

Two hours of my life wasted.

Seriously. They sent us an email with the link to the EIGHT SafeSchools videos I have to watch, which I did. I just sort of let them play while playing Candy Crush, ha! And THEN, our principal tells us that district decided we should watch them as a staff. We have spent the last two Wednesday afternoons from 2:00-5:00 WATCHING THEM AGAIN AND DISCUSSING THEM. It's unreal.

My school does this too! As much as I dislike the videos/quizzes at least I can do it on my own time (multi-tasking). Now they spread them out due dates over several weeks so it gives us a little break. In the past (for YEARS) they made all of us sit in a PD meeting and waste hours. It was equivalent to Chinese Water Torture - we were trapped and it was awful. I still get a tick when I hear ďBloodborn PathogensĒ
