Upon the advice of our attornies, we have urged our members not to sign the district’s Technology Use Agreement. It creates a legally binding agreement. There has been no input sought from the RTEA and places sole responsibility on staff members for security. By not signing staff has been forbidden to use district’s technology. We hope that a collaborative process is used that helps to protect the interests of both staff and district moving forward.
Teachers around the country are being acknowledged for “Teacher Appreciation Week”. Not only do we thank the teachers, but our Educational Support Professionals, secretaries, and custodial/maintenance. Without us all working together, learning does not happen. We are proud to work with you day in and day out.
Thank you for ALL you do!
