On March 19th, PAT representatives met with the District to review unassignments. Prior to that meeting, PAT analyzed each of the 125 unassignments to ensure they were done in compliance with the contract.
An unassignment is NOT a layoff. Instead, the educator will be reassigned to another site for the 2019-2020 school year by applying to available vacant positions. Vacancies will be posted in the Internal transfer process from April 1 – 5, with interviews occurring April 8 – 12. Contract educators, 3rd year probationary educators, and unassigned 1st and 2nd year probationary educators are eligible to apply for vacancies in the Internal transfer process. No external applicant may be considered for a subject area until all unassigned current educators are assigned.
Unassigned educators may learn more about the process and ask questions at these PPS informational meetings: Wednesday, March 20th at 5:00 PM (BESC, Wy’East on L1) and Thursday, March 21st at 4:30 PM (BESC, Wy’East on L1).
