AM Brew - December 20, 2021

Here's What's Brewing Today

Monday, December 13, 2021

The WTU would like to congratulate and honor Aiton Elementary Teacher Alex Diasgranados on being named the National University 2021 Teacher of the Year!!

Happy Holidays! Myself and the entire WTU team wish you a safe and healthy holiday and we hope that you’re able to enjoy your Winter Break. We are increasingly concerned about the growing number of cases of COVID-19 in our schools and the delays in reporting cases to school communities (we greatly appreciate WTOP highlighting the issues in this story: DC teachers, lawmakers apprehensive in days before holiday break). The WTU and DC Labor are actively reaching out to Mayor Bowser and DCPS officials to demand a plan for this week that will keep staff and students safe. We are also asking for a test to return policy in place for January.

We encourage you to take extra precautions this week and over your Winter Break.

Happy Holidays!

Jacqueline Pogue Lyons, President

Washington Teachers’ Union

 

* There will be no AM Brew on Monday, December 27 as staff celebrate the Holidays. We will be sure to keep you updated on any breaking news or announcements concerning health and safety protocols.

Statement to Members

To: WTU Members

Re: Transitioning to Virtual Learning / Test to Return Policy for DC Schools

From: Jacqueline Pogue Lyons, President

Date: December 19, 2021

 

 

Good evening –

Over the past week, our city has seen the number of COVID cases increase substantially and the city has entered a period of high transmission. On Friday, D.C. Health Department reported 844 new coronavirus cases, the highest case count reported throughout the entire pandemic. We’ve seen hundreds of students contract the disease.

I have been in constant communication with Mayor Bowser’s advisors, Members of the Council, and DC Public School Chancellor Lewis Ferebee. Earlier today, the Chancellor informed me that while a system-wide closure is not supported by Department of Health metrics several schools will be transitioning to virtual learning until the Winter Break. The Chancellor has additionally promised a daily review of case notifications to determine if additional schools should transition to virtual learning environments. DCPS will be announcing any school transitions to virtual environments as early as possible each day leading up to the Winter Break.

The WTU is also committed to ensuring that staff and students can also return safely to our schools in January. We have asked the Chancellor to implement a “test to return” program for all educators and students before we return to in-person learning in January. Details on this program are not yet available but we hope to be able to share them in the coming days.

We hope that you have a safe and enjoyable Winter Break. We know that these next few days will be trying given the surge of COVID-19 in our community. Please continue to reach out to your Field Representative with your questions and concerns regarding the number of COVID- 19 cases in your school. We encourage you to remain safe this week and throughout your holiday. Please watch for updates from the WTU and DCPS over the coming days and weeks as you relax and recharge over your break.

In solidarity,

Jacqueline Pogue Lyons, President

Washington Teachers’ Union

DC Educator Survey

Thanks to all our teachers who took the time to participate in the DC Educator Survey.

The demands on educators are through the roof, and our teachers are in distress.  EmpowerEd and WTU conducted a survey with over 600 DCPS and DC public charter school teacher responses across all wards, which shows that a staggering 81 % of educators say morale has worsened from previous years.  14 % say they are considering leaving their posts before the end of the school year, with another 18 % seriously considering leaving at the end of the year and 14 % saying they are somewhat seriously considering leaving. Only 23 % say they would definitely stay. 

DC already has the highest teacher turnover rate in the country, with 25-30 % of educators leaving their schools yearly- compared to the urban average of 16-19 %.  While many have pointed to figures showing DCPS keeping teachers they rate as “highly effective”, 57 % of the teachers who have left in the past seven years were rated either effective or highly effective. DC also lost more Black educators than any city in the country in the 10 years following the implementation of the IMPACT teacher evaluation system- which was found by a study commissioned by the District to be racially biased.

The number one ranked solution educators say would keep them in the classroom is flexible scheduling, with hundreds of educators noting in comments the overwhelming hours and impossible demands being put on teachers to make up for “learning loss”.  Educators see their peers in other professions gaining additional job flexibility since the pandemic, but education has not innovated in the same ways.  Many note working 10-12 hours and again on the weekend, feeling forced to choose between their profession and their commitment to family and their own well-being.  One of the key things highlighted in our survey, is the demands on educators who are also parents- managing unsustainable hours.  One educator said “I have a child and for most of her life I have been exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally because I typically work 65 - 75 hours a week (often giving up one to two full weekend days a month). She deserves better.”  This sentiment was echoed across the survey.

Teachers also noted higher pay, less focus on standardized testing, more professional autonomy to do their jobs and additional classroom support as key shifts needed to retain them.  

Importantly, educators made clear that they are leaving primarily due to city-wide and system-wide policies, not challenges working with students. 59 % identified city-wide and LEA-wide policies as the primary culprit, while only 14 % pointed to challenges working with students.  (24 % blamed school level policies and only 4 % noted challenges with colleagues).

 

Click here for the FULL RESULTS.

See the full results of the survey along with notable quotes from educators on morale, how the pandemic has changed their perception of teaching as a profession and what would keep them in the classroom!

COVID-19 Mandates

If you have concerns or additional questions regarding the District’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate, please reach out to your WTU Field Representative for the personal or individual guidance and support you may need.


Denial of religious or medical exemption to the vaccine mandate:   

If your request for a religious or medical exemption was denied, you may appeal and challenge this determination if you believe it violates your rights under Title VII or the D.C. Human Rights Act. To do so, you must consult an EEO Counselor and/or file a complaint with the Office of Human Rights (OHR).  

More information on filing an EEO complaint can be found at https://ohr.dc.gov/complaints/process

A list of EEO counselors can be found at https://tinyurl.com/2p846mk9.  

Testing kits: WTU has requested that DCPS send teachers information regarding when and how to receive the weekly COVID-19 testing kits in the mail.  

Simultaneous teaching

If you are asked, at any point, to provide both in-person and remote instruction simultaneously for part of the semester or for the whole semester, please make sure to keep records of it by emailing your administration with the dates you taught simultaneously. It is important for each teacher to keep a record until DCPS prepares and distributes the official forms for simultaneous teaching. We will continue to keep you in the loop.

WTU Survey on Excessive Testing.

Thank you to the 634 teachers who responded to the WTU survey about testing during the 2021-22 school year. The vast majority of those responding, 92 percent, said they are dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with the amount of required testing of students. Nearly the same number of teachers, or 89 percent, said they are dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with the amount of time available for teaching versus testing.

Further details about the WTU teacher evaluation survey can be found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/stories/SM-VS5M6VSQ/

We have been discussing with Chancellor Ferebee and the D.C. City Council our serious concerns over classroom time taken up by testing. These survey results reinforce our concerns and demand changes. We will send them the results of this survey to augment our efforts to ensure that teaching triumphs over testing.

 

Teacher Morale and Retention Check-in

The WTU has joined with EmpowerEd to learn more about your hopes as well as the challenges that you are facing this year. I hope you’ll complete our joint Educator Morale and Retention Survey to help us understand whether or not you're considering leaving the teaching profession and what is driving your decision-making.

Thank you in advance for taking a few minutes to complete our short survey. Please note that if you sign-up for one of the teacher-led campaigns in the last section of the survey, Empower Ed will contact you. Participation in the campaigns is completely voluntary.

Memorandum of Agreement – Vaccine Mandate Impacts & Effects

President Jacqueline Pogue Lyons has signed an MOA on the impacts & effects of Mayor Bowser's COVID-19 vaccination mandate. 

  • WTU successfully bargained for Teachers to receive sick leave for getting vaccinations or boosters. Specifically, the MOA requires DCPS to grant each Teacher three (3) hours of sick leave per injection for a vaccination or booster against COVID-19. In addition, the MOA provides each Teacher with eight (8) hours of sick leave for getting fully vaccinated or a booster.
  • WTU also fought hard to secure concessions from DCPS to provide COVID-19 testing for Teachers to help keep our school communities safe.
  • The MOA protects Teachers who have submitted and are awaiting a decision on a request for a medical or religious exemption by providing that those Teachers may continue to test weekly in lieu of complying with the mandate.
  • The MOA also provides that Teachers who choose to resign or involuntarily separate from DCPS as a result of the vaccination mandate shall have their personnel records expunged of any disciplinary actions taken on the basis of their vaccination status.

 

You can view the full MOA here.
