Educators are entitled to compensation for extended hours for their participation in Limited In-Person Instruction (LIPI). Educators shall receive:
Up to 3 extended hours of Professional Development, including:
- Up to 90 minutes for District-directed operational and health/safety PD (summarized on this LIPI Staff Training document) and
- Up to 90 minutes of Principal-directed PD that includes a site walkthrough.
- 1 extended hour per week for planning for LIPI
- Pay for all hours implementing LIPI
For example, if an educator leads a LIPI cohort session on Tuesday and Thursday from 1-3pm, this constitutes 4 hours + 1 hour of planning = 5 hours total for that week, which will be paid at the educator’s per diem hourly rate.
Educators should submit their extended hours weekly in this LIPI Extended Hours Form from PPS (a PPS e-mail address is required to access this form).
Once submitted, the teacher and Principal’s Secretary will receive an automatic reply with an Account code to use for payroll purposes. The Principal’s Secretary will add these hours when they do Payroll. Shawn Bird, PPS Chief of Schools, has informed administrators of this process.
