Today is the start of the New Teacher Institute at English High School, and we send out a welcome to all our new staff which will grow to an estimated 300 when hiring is completed.
Next week we will send out a newly-designed BTU Building Rep toolkit for use on Tuesday, September 3, during the 30-minute time block set aside for BTU activity. All representatives have received two letters in advance giving each a heads up as to what to look for in the mail: the toolkit as well as a packet of newspapers. We asked that exiting representatives give us instructions as to whom to mail these packets in their absence. Many have sent us instructions. If you happen to be in a school that might be “uncovered,” please let us know to whom to send the packets. We want to make sure all buildings get sufficient materials.
