Overage Pay Determination

The current PAT/PPS contract states, “Student loads will be calculated on the third Monday in October and the third Monday in February.” (Article

This year, the third Monday in October is Monday, October 21st.

All professional educators should save a copy of their Synergy class lists, and of their course preparation lists, on Friday, October 18th, and then keep a copy of that record. PPS will make overage payments in the November check.

If any professional educator does not receive payment for an overage, claims can be submitted to PPS in December.

Updates to the TELL Survey

The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) survey is changing!

For starters, it won’t be called the TELL Survey anymore. We’re not sure what its new name will be or when the new survey will be administered.

However, this is our chance to give feedback, and hopefully improve, the survey.

  • Are there questions that should be asked that haven’t been?
  • Are there questions that you or your co-workers use that you want to be sure remain?
  • Are there questions you wish were never asked?
