No letter from my districts.

I work for two districts...They have not sent me any letter about the new school year...

I usually get letters asking me if I want to return for the new school year...Then I would check yes on the letter and return it to the office...

Did you get any letter from your districts?

I received letters from all three of my California districts. One in March, the other two in May.

I usually receive both of my LRA's by mail. This year, both of my skl districts sent them online. One through our employee's payroll system (April), the other one to my email with a link to a google form (May). Both districts are working from home. Maybe send them an email?

Our district put a notification on Aesop saying that they were not sending out letters this year. We just need to let them know if we are not coming back.

Letters were sent online back in April for all three of my districts.

I am now assuming our annual mandated reporting training and quiz will be arriving soon in our inboxes.

I received letters but only returned and signed the one for the SPED district affiliated with my sub agency.

I refuse to sign anything until the school year is fully confirmed in my state.

Everything is crazy right now so I wouldn't worry. If you're concerned, contact your sub agency with questions.

I got mine, but this year it says all subs must have active certification. I checked it anyway. It's a large district - I'm hoping they won't notice.

In PA, you have to take two 3-credit courses to have active certification. And I don't have the time or the resources right now to do these courses.

PA credit hours

What a racket! Two questions: (1) how often do you have to take the courses, and (2) can you take them at community college, or does it have to be at a four year school? Here in Michigan, at our nearest four year university, six hours of undergrad credit adds up to $3078 (@ $503 per hour). Our community college charges $552 for each 3 hour class, or $1104 for six hours. These are the minimum prices for beginning students who have fewer than 12 hours earned so far.
My sympathies.

Even though the job requires a degree, we hardly ever have to think. Having to take classes seems very worthless. At least I have some benefit for having my credential because I don't have to jump through these hoops.

The state wants money! In Michigan full time certified teachers have to continually go back to school to "recertify."

One district just sent me a letter last week (very late). I filled it out and sent it back. I received a very friendly email from the Asst Superintendant personally thanking me for my planned return. I was shocked!

My other district (main one I work) sent nothing this year. Therefore I emailed the sub coordinator just telling her I was planning on returning in Sept with hopes school will be back in session. She replied the next day and told me no letters went out this year because she was working from home, but thanked me for letting her know. Therefore, I'd just send an email to your sub coordinators at this point letting them know your plans for September if you havent heard anything by now. I am sure they would appreciate it either way.

Subtastic, just curious if this 3 credit course is just for subs who are not "Certified Teachers" or is it for ALL subs regardless of teacher cert status?

Yup, I got one! But this year they included another letter about COVID and health and whatnot. I forgot what it was about but we had to sign it & return it along with the other/normal form they send every year.

I'm not substastic, but I have a credential (not sure what "certified" means), and I've never once had to jump through any hoops except the online pesticide, etc., classes. If they did, I wouldn't be happy. I paid my dues in getting my credential. I am more qualified than some of the teachers.

At least in Michigan, certified means you have either earned a teaching certificate, or hold a current (not expired) teaching certificate. Some districts, like mine, will take you on as a long term sub even if your certification has expired.
