The Reconciled PGCPS budget was passed this past Thursday and there were some significant wins. The Negotiated Agreement will be honored and all compensation enhancements will be paid without interruption. We were also pleased that 800,000 will be used for coursework for conditional teachers.
Thank you for all of the emails, calls and text messages in inquiring about school closing and re-opening. We met with Dr. Goldson this past Wednesday and were informed that she has selected a team to work on re-opening, ten PGCEA members are on the team. The team has a deadline of July 6 to present a reopening plan based for comment. We have shared your concerns from our surveys, member emails, calls, our tele-town halls. Your voice is in the room.
Please be mindful that if you have a medical issue that prevents you from returning you may apply for accommodations through the accommodations office.
Have a peaceful 4th of July. We have the right to protest to support Black Lives Matter.
