Here is the most up to date communication and direction regarding the District Closure specific to our work group. Keep in mind, this is an everchanging situation that will require your frequent review of communication. Our thanks in advance for checking email, voice mail, workplace, and with each other through this time.
Another very important survey is attached here https://forms.gle/CQRQKFLizpsDrd8m6
Which will allow you to choose from the following options through the duration of the closure, or until other guidance is provided. All staff MUST COMPLETE THIS SURVEY ASAP!
- On Call and paid from 7am-130pm every school day (if you are contacted during these hours you must be responsive and ready to report)
- Continue to use ACA time and not be contacted to work from an on call pool
- Use time without pay and not be contacted to work from an on call pool
Effective tomorrow 3/20/2020 if you are not performing a “critical role” and have not been advised directly, all staff has been assigned to on call status.
We have also prepared a Professional Development Page for your use during this time to refresh and review industry relavant material and information. Please follow the link on the transportation employee links page to access these training tools.
We have placed slides on the transportation employee links page explaining the on call work expectation. These slides will answer your questions and offer some scenarios that will make the options more clear.
Whatever option you choose On call, ACA, Unpaid – per the survey is how we will put your time into TCP for Pay – we will be adding all on call worked hours for Bus Drivers, FIT Drivers, and Monitors. Should you choose to utilize ACA time you will need to access TCP and make the request for approval. If you choose to use time WOP you in addition to the survey contact your supervisor and Danielle to add the WOP option.
Transportation office and garage staff will clock in and out via the Kyrene website.
