11/5/20(Remote Work MOA) Will sunset on June 30, 2021, unless both parties agree in writing to extend, no later than May 1, 2021, or when schools resume full in-person instruction.
(Personnel Memo) Not applicable beyond 2020-21 school year, and may be changed prior to end of school year.
Hybrid and Remote(Remote Work MOA) Parties will meet to jointly determine what sections of agreement are relevant if schools need to transition between learning modalities.
(Personnel Memo) If there are additional policy changes, memo will be updated.
Issue Not addressedIssue not addressedIssue not addressedIssue not addressedIssue not addressedIssue not addressed(Remote Work MOA) Some schools may have a need for more full remote teaching positions than they have teachers with a need for medical accommodations. A teacher that is a documented primary caregiver of a family member that they live with and who have conditions that make them at higher risk for COVID-19 related complications per CDC, to the extent possible and as soon as practicable, will be assigned to the full remote teaching position. YesNoYes(Blended Learning Agreement) Learning materials for students will be uploaded in school’s chosen learning system (e.g., Google Classroom), including daily messages and directions given to students, assignments, and learning resources. Students will be expected to log in daily and read the daily messages and complete tasks as assigned by teacher. Remote teachers will support students and families with navigating remote learning instructional materials and platforms, while ensuring that these are available in the home languages of the students.
(Instructional Principles) A class schedule and times designated for synchronous instruction (including whole/small group/individual live instruction) should be posted where it is available to all students and parents. If changes need to be made to the synchronous instruction schedule, teachers should notify principal and provide adequate notice to students and families. Teachers will have 20 minutes of daily Office Hours scheduled during workday to communicate virtually with families and students via video conference or telephone.
Yes(Remote Work MOA) Livestreaming is an individual teacher’s choice.
(Blended Learning Agreement) Expectation is to ensure students are provided the range of times to engage synchronously, whether in whole group, small group, or individually, within the contractual work day (outside of prep, lunch, office hours, and instructional coordination times). Synchronous instruction is defined as live interaction between teacher and student(s) each day at a scheduled time, communicated in advance to parents and students. Daily synchronous instruction may include use of Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, other DOE approved online video conferencing platforms, and phone conferences to provide: Whole class/small group/individualized live instruction; Office Hours; Social and emotional wellness daily activities; Feedback on student learning and progress check-ins; and Conferences with students/families. Fully remote students should anticipate receiving live synchronous instruction each day with a minimum amount based on grade level, student need, and school schedules delivered in short, grade appropriate, intervals throughout the day with gradual increase until schools fully reopen. Ranges for K (65 to 120 min), gr. 1 (75 to 120 min), gr. 2 (80 to 130 min), gr. 3-5 (90 to 210 min), gr. 6-8 (80 to 210 min), gr. 9-12 (100 to 210 min).
(Instructional Principles) Remote instruction for all students will include both synchronous and asynchronous instruction, with synchronous instruction occurring daily.
(Blended Learning Agreement) Blended learning model incorporates a combination of both on-site instruction at school and remote instruction at home. Remote instruction of blended students will include routinely meeting with the same group of students on specific days. Students will learn with an on-site teacher and blended remote teacher. The specific days on-site vs. remote will be determined by programming model selected by school. For students learning in a blended learning setting, on-site learning should resemble a typical school day. Students should receive instruction across all four core subject areas and other specials as scheduled. Students may participate in an instructional lunch called Lunch in the Classroom. Fully remote students will be online every day engaging in both synchronous and asynchronous learning. For K-5, 15-30 min instruction/mini-lesson (synchronous + asynchronous) per subject (daily ELA & math, 3-4 times per week Science/Social Studies, rotate in specials), 15-30 min small group/individual instruction per subject at least once weekly, and 15-35 min asynchronous learning per subject daily (not to exceed total 100 min K-2, 150 min gr. 3-5). For gr. 6-12, 15-30 min instruction (synchronous + asynchronous) per subject (daily, rotate in specials), 15-30 min small group/individual instruction per subject at least once weekly, and 15-45 min asynchronous learning per subject daily (not to exceed 200 min. total gr. 6-8, 250 min total gr. 9-12). Asynchronous instruction may include: Video lessons/recorded presentations; Activities/assignments/tasks; Collaborative documents; Discussion boards; Email communication; and Feedback on student learning.
(Instructional Principles) In-person student lunch can and should be instructional. Teachers will continue to have a duty-free lunch that is separate from in-person student instructional lunch. In elementary schools, any teacher may be assigned to teach during students’ instructional lunch period. Student lunch can be staggered throughout school day from 10AM - 2PM. This will result in a shorter day for students while not reducing the amount of instruction students receive. Sample in-person student schedule has 5 1/2 hours of instructional time, including an instructional lunch.
(Remote Work MOA) If schools wish to implement alternative programs and schedules that differ from the Blended Learning Agreements, they must utilize the SBO process. This includes: Instructional Coordination, Preparation Periods, Office Hours, Instructional Lunch, Work Day, Class Size, Teacher Programs, and Mixed Modalities. If an acceptable modification is not brought to an SBO vote and approved, the Blended Learning Agreements must be followed.
Teachers have right to take preparation periods remotely. Teachers who have an in-person assignment may perform some work duties remotely if their assigned duties can be performed remotely and their students are not in the building. Supervisors may require in-person teachers to remain on-site if needed.
(Personnel Memo) It is the expectation that all teachers who are working from home are still working the equivalent of
their regular workhours.
(Blended Learning Agreement) Remote and on-site teachers will be organized into teaching pairs or teams to coordinate instruction. Leveraging the Instructional Coordination Period for joint planning, the on-site teacher and the blended remote teacher will work together to coordinate student learning. All efforts will be made to assign teachers to a program that is exclusively of one type (in-person or fully remote or blended remote). In the limited instances where a teacher has a partial program of one type, the balance of the teacher’s program may be of another type.
(Instructional Principles) All staff will have a daily 30-minute Instructional Coordination period before students’ instructional day begins to coordinate instruction and plan together. Teachers will receive a 30-minute prep period at the end of the school day. In-person teachers will not be required to be in the school building and can engage in prep time activities remotely. A teacher’s day will be 6 hours and 50-minutes.
Issue not addressed(Instructional Principles) Schools will have one faculty and one grade or department conference per month (40 minutes each). These meetings will occur at the end of
the school day, immediately prior to the teacher’s 30-minute prep. During this time teachers can engage in administrative duties or professional learning as assigned by the principal.

Such use of CAR or sick days is limited to no more than twelve (12) weeks total, less any time taken as excused leave at partial pay.
Issue not addressed(Remote Work MOA) All in-school coverages will follow CBA, including employment of per diem substitute teachers. A Paraprofessional Classroom Manager (PCM) may be assigned to cover classes. The PCM will receive a per term stipend of $1,750. Duties are to manage classrooms of students while they perform independent work, eat during non-instructional lunch, or are being instructed by a remote teacher during synchronous learning. Total class size (on-site + remote) may not exceed pre-COVID class size limits. In event of an emergency, PCM may teach a scheduled class when no teacher is available to cover. If asked to do more than 5 emergency coverages in a term, PCM will be paid the teacher’s coverage rate in addition to the stipend. PCM will not be expected to teach except in the emergency coverage situation. During COVID period, a Lead Education Associate/Lead Teacher Assistant (LTA) may provide emergency coverages and will be compensated at the teachers’ coverage rate in addition to the LTA stipend.
