"Labor Day is a great opportunity to reflect on the power of working people and the labor movement. Union labor built this country, and you, as educators and PSEA members, are building its tomorrow by educating the children of today.

"At the local level, your leaders are looking out for you and your students, doing everything they can to make sure school districts are prioritizing your health and safety above everything else.

"As we head into this Labor Day weekend, I want to take a moment to say thank you for your dedication and your commitment to your students. You make a tremendous difference in their lives every day, and it is our commitment at PSEA to be there for you in any way we can.

Under pressure, Trump administration reverses course, easing way for Philly, U.S. kids to get school lunch during pandemic

"Beginning in March, the USDA relaxed its own complex regulations and allowed families to pick up breakfast and lunch at schools or other sites, since their children were compelled to learn virtually from home. As a result, many more children were able to eat. But during the summer, the agency said it would end the waivers once the school year started, claiming it didn’t have permission or money from Congress to continue.

"In a stunning barrage of letters to the USDA, members of Congress disagreed, saying they had indeed given the agency the wherewithal to allow the feeding to continue."

One U.S. Senator called the USDA's initial refusal to extend all school meal waivers “baffling during this national crisis in which 17 million U.S. children didn’t have enough to eat this summer."

Vote By Mail - General Election 2020

Never has the issue of voting by mail been more relevant or urgent
than during this pandemic. When every in-person gathering is fraught
with anxiety, it only makes sense to use alternative tools to exercise
your democratic rights – especially when it’s this easy.

Despite what you may have heard, voting by mail is safe, secure,
and incredibly easy. Fortunately, it looks like Pennsylvanians are already figuring that out.

🗳 More than 50% of all ballots cast in the June 2 PA primary were mail-in ballots.

🗳 One in five PSEA members who are registered to vote applied to vote by mail.

Rich's Notebook: #MaskUp for a school year like no other

"There’s no doubt that this school year is starting out like no other any of us have ever seen.

Some of you are engaged in entirely online or remote instruction. Others are back to school five days a week with a variety of new safety precautions in place. Still others are teaching students in person half the week and online the other half to maintain social distance in your school buildings.

Many of you feel uncertain and anxious about this school year. All of you are committed to keeping everyone in our schools safe.

I want you to know that I have heard you and that your voice matters.

Your words and your advocacy have driven my work and the work of PSEA. Every time I speak to a journalist or a policymaker, a parent or community leader, I tell them that you missed being with your students and couldn’t wait to be back with them to guide their education forward."

-County Designations for School Reopening-
#ICYMI: On Aug. 10, Governor Tom Wolf outlined new statewide guidance aimed at helping schools decide whether it is safe to reopen for in-person instruction.

The guidance (updated weekly from Pennsylvania Department of Education data) places each PA county in one of three tiers, based on the county’s COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population or its infection rate percentage. Depending on what tier a county is in, the guidance provides recommendations about whether public schools should open for in-person instruction, adopt hybrid plans, or offer remote-only learning.

Only open schools if we follow the rules: Rich Askey

"Our schools are safe havens where Pennsylvania’s students learn and where dedicated educators and support professionals work. Taking unnecessary risks with the health of kids, school staff and their families is simply the wrong thing to do during a pandemic.

But, if we follow these rules, we can still educate our students, while taking steps to stop the spread of this virus more quickly. That’s what it will take to open our schools for safe, in-person instruction."

-PSEA President, Rich Askey

State guidelines provide a clear pathway for school leaders.

08/24/2020
Universal Web

"PSEA has been working with state leaders for months to encourage them to provide schools with a roadmap to safely reopening. In the last few weeks, the state departments of health and education have released directives and guidelines for school districts that, among other things, emphasize:

✅ The necessity of wearing face coverings to prevent the spread of the virus in schools;
✅ The need for social distancing in schools and classrooms;
✅ Science-based metrics for determining when it’s safe to hold in-person instruction and when online only or a blended approach of in-person and online instruction is needed; and
✅ Procedures informed by health experts for responding to COVID-19 exposures that occur at school."

Conestoga Valley delays start of school, keeps full-time, in-person instruction despite teacher protest

Lancaster County school districts are recommended to reopen under a hybrid or fully remote instructional model, according to new guidance from the Pennsylvania departments of education and health.

“We can’t do anything about the virus, but we can do our part to keep our kids safe and each other (safe),” Kim Stamm, an art teacher at Gerald Huesken Middle School, said during the rally.

The Conestoga Valley school board, however, already rejected a proposal featuring a hybrid model earlier this month. On Monday night, it voted 7-1 in favor of an updated reopening plan that added a synchronous online option for secondary students in the hopes that it could decrease class sizes, though it's unclear what, if any, impact it could have.

Berks County school officials say new school reopening guidance is welcome but doesn't ease decision-making burden

"Rich Askey, president of the Pennsylvania State Education Association teachers union, said Monday that schools should follow the new guidelines.

"State government has issued helpful guidance on a number of health and safety issues that schools can use to guide their reopening plans," he said. "But we still need state directives that make it absolutely clear that, in addition to wearing a mask, everyone must maintain six feet of social distance and when a school should close if a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19."

"Askey asked the state to continue to work with educators to help make sure that if schools open for in-person instruction they do so safely.

"The governor’s announcement today is a significant step forward, but state government still needs to answer some questions that school districts can’t answer themselves," he said. "We’re educators, not doctors. So, we need state experts to tell us how best to keep our students, staff and families safe."

Some superintendents say the recommendations are late and fail to answer many questions.

PSEA.org has been down for the last two days. Just FYI
Go eat a rock!
What is PSEA doing about the conditons for most school openings that are putting your membership and other staff at high risk? Many local school policies (hybrid and other) are a far cry from enough and a waiting disaster. Lack of consistent cleaning, masking enforcement, what to do when an outbreak happens to teachers, students, etc., contact tracing capabilities..who and what! and on and on. We surely don't want anyone getting seriously sick or next step! Need to know how your protecting us!
The people of Pa. I have admired for many years in my visits to friends and relatives. Politics have not divided us in past years, there has been disagreements but not the atmosphere there is of name calling and outright lies. Peoples carriers ruined for just doing their jobs. This issue with the USPS is what happens in countries like Russia, NKorea, China etc., countries that are under a dictator or authoritarian law. They suppress voting or discourage to vote. We are a democracy, not one of these type of countries, at least right now. This is also having an effect on our veterans/senior citizens who get their medicines through the mail, it is being delayed, in some cases by several weeks which could be life or death, our educators by not receiving the health supplies they need desperately. I am not a Democrat nor a Republican. I vote on whats best for my children and their children because the decisions you and I make today will have a long term effect on their lives. I always say don't listen to what they have to say but watch what they do. This whole situation with the USPS was attempted to be done without no one noticing. Below is a interesting article you might enjoy, copy and paste it into your browser then it will open. https://smartnews.link/w/38E2 The best to all of you and may your health stay strong during this pandemic 2020.
Hi PA Educators, I started www.matchingpods.com, an algorithm-based matchmaking service to match Educators and Families in Delaware and Montgomery Counties, to create learning pods that will allow children to thrive. The survey allows me to take multiple criteria points into account to match everyone up thoughtfully, so as to create an environment that is gratifying and successful for both Educators and Families alike. I wanted to share this here, as the overwhelming response since I started Matching Pods last week means I need more Educators to match with the pods we are forming in the local communities! If you are looking to support a learning pod in Montgomery or Delaware county this school year, please do complete the survey, we would love to find your pod!
Email subject line : Please consider the words in this post by another PA educator. Letter to PSEA state/local officials: I am assuming these persons are also PSEA members. It doesn't matter if they are PSEA or AFT, or neither. What matters is WHAT THEY ARE SAYING. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING WITH AN OPEN MIND AND AN OPEN HEART. MAY YOU SERIOUSLY TAKE THE TASK SET BEFORE YOU - WHEN YOU DECIDED TO WORK FOR PSEA ON THE BEHALF OF MEMBERS - WHETHER VOTED IN OR HIRED. I WANT TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL. I WANT TO BE IN MY CLASSROOM. I WANT TO BE WITH MY KIDS. I WANT TO BE WITH MY COLLEAGUES. I DON'T HAVE A 'JOB.' I HAVE FUN. I LOVE WHAT I DO. I JUST WANT TO BE SAFE DOING IT. I JUST WANT TO HAVE THE SAME SAFETY MEASURES AND PRECAUTIONS AS ALL OTHER PA BUSINESSES. MY WORK IS A BUSINESS ALSO. ITS BUSINESS IS EDUCATION. May God's presence be in your hearts and minds as you read and reflect on the following words, keeping in mind that you chose a very important job in which you have the capacity to work on the behalf and for the benefit of other people. I've always understood that one of PSEA's missions was to work, and fight if necessary, for the rights of workers. One of the rights of workers is a safe and healthy working environment. Please walk the walk and not just talk the talk. "Myself and Joe Martino. a teacher at Penn Wood HS, prepared the following statement in response to tonight's vote at William Penn School District's school board meeting on reopening schools: We understand that the decision the William Penn School District school board made tonight to start the school year virtually was not an easy one, but we believe it was ultimately the right decision. As educators, we appreciate the school board acting to protect the lives, and the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and communities. In the policy hearing held by State Senator Lisa Boscola on August 3, 2020, School Board President Jennifer Hoff stated with a visibly heavy heart: "I fear that we, as decision-makers in our district, are being set up to fail." We agree that the lack of guidance on how to safely open schools from the federal and state governments, alongside the federal government's clear mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic as compared to the rest of the world, plus years of inadequate funding from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania set our school board up with no great option. With that being said, if the measure that passed tonight was not taken up, we would have certainly spread COVID-19 amongst our students, staff, families, and communities, continuing to kill loved ones as it spread. We believe that, with today's vote, our school board was as successful as it could be, given the current conditions. This vote not only allows for our students, staff, and communities to be safe, but grants our staff the peace of mind needed to educate our students to their greatest ability while also supporting their mental needs during this difficult time. We thank all of the board for their time, service, and dedication to the families, students, teachers, and staff in the William Penn School District. They have put our lives, safety, and well-being first, and we are grateful. We hope that the school board and teachers continue to collaborate and work together to provide the students in the William Penn School District a great education." End quote of post. Please help us, our students, and their community, which will also benefit the communities that we, the teachers, live in, so that there is a decreased chance of us passing to our own communities of residency. Hopefully in peace and solidarity, Michele Buzard
Does PSEA offer a Will writing service to its’ members? Or could someone point me in the right direction. I’d like to prepare one. Thank you.
Has the PSEA addressed the giant loophole in PDE’s mask guidance? That is, the part that says no documentation is required for a mask exemption. That says to me that any student (or adult) at any time can claim a medical exemption and refuse to wear a mask and there’s nothing schools can do about it. I can easily imagine an entire class of 7th graders realizing this and all refusing to wear masks. How can a school keep its employees safe if no one needs to wear a mask if they don’t feel like it?
Hello Fellow Edcators, My district is implementing block scheduling in our middle schools this year as a way to give the students less to manage in case we are online again, or even if we do a hybrid schedule. I know I am struggling with getting my head around the block schedule, and I would bet others are as well. Although it works well for many students and teachers, I, myself, have never experienced it save for a few sub jobs in the 90's. Throw in the additional Covid-19 physical distance restrictions, and now I am even more perplexed! I do believe that Block scheduling can be great, but what about when we are not permitted to do group work due to proximity restrictions? We can do online groups and students can work together online from 3 feet (or 6 feet, whichever the law decides), but is that really the best scenario? My question to my colleagues is this: How do we best utilize the BLOCK SCHEDULE in our new COVID-19 Restricted classrooms? Be well! Jennifer :)
What guidelines are proposed by PSEA to all districts in order to demand a SAFE return to work for BOTH students and teachers? When will these guidelines be transparent? Who can members contact for specific questions pertaining to the SAFE RETURN to work? Is PSEA working in conjunction with Dr. Levine and Gov. Wolf?
