  • Failures-to-Fill

    The STA has filed a grievance regarding the District’s practice to direct non-enrolling teachers to cover failure to fill for classroom teachers. The STA is therefore collecting data to support this grievance by requesting that staff reps regularly report failures to fill. In an effort to make this task as quick and efficient as possible, we have created a new format for reporting failures to fill. Starting April 01, 2019, please click the link below to report failures to fill at your school.
