Teachers get lead money to buy supplies and the district says the money will be dispersed by the 30th of September. I am really appreciative to receive a the fraction of money I will spend on my class but it would have been great as my bank account hits rock bottom, the consequence of not getting paid for over two months, to have gotten this money, oh before school began.
This isn’t the only thing the district has fallen down on either. I am told the CAST prê-tests will arrive sometime in September, some 2-5 weeks after school began, curriculum guides weren’t up as of this past Friday, you know the last day of pre planning and in the Times Union when talking about schools opening the super said, “textbooks should arrive at schools next week as well. “
