I have read many teacher contracts from districts across the entire state, and can say I have NEVER seen one that included specific days off for anything. Never. Not one.
Your local school board sets the calendar for the school year, not your local teachers union. I brought this up to TDD and he replied that he was an admin for support staff. I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but support staff admin have relatively zero to do with teachers and probably he has never seen a teacher contract. If he has read the teacher contract (CBA) at his district I would be astounded.
Yes, I goofed on that post. And it was corrected by someone (maybe you, I don't recall, it was some time ago and I didn't go back and look for it just now). Since the conversation moved on, I decided it wasn't important for me to post about it again.
Now it's back.
Yes, I flip flopped teachers and support staff in my brain. I can say I was tired, not thinking straight, whatever...point is, I screwed up that post. It was pointed out, and correct info given.
With all due respect, you know jack about my background. Maybe I'm being overly sensitive, but your post seems to read with a lot of condescension and disrespect and while I know nothing about you either, I'd appreciate at least the benefit of the doubt.
Point of fact...I'm a certified teacher, have taught at multiple levels, and have worked in several roles in public ed. I'm in the second half of my career.
Did I screw up that post? Yep. Sure did.
Can we be done with this now?
