    When will we find out if we are supposed to attend Monday’s inservice training? There is no one in my building that seems to have any helpful information regarding what will most likely happen.

      It occurs to me that some might not yet know: WE HAVE A TENTATIVE AGREEMENT! Word should be coming to you from your Association Representative (Building Rep), but it’s possible they are still on that Tahiti cruise and can’t communicate that to you. Attend your pre-service days and do your classroom set-up as normal. With the Tentative Agreement in place, you have good faith that you will be compensated even though the contract has not been ratified by members yet.

    What do you mean that other districts have” back filled” the 1.9% ?
