Agreement Reached Regarding Small Cohorts - Engagement

Posted March 5, 2021

An agreement (a Memorandum of Understanding) was reached regarding the “after school” supplemental program offered by the District at Southgate and Fairview. This program is an after school, in-person program, in order to provide support to state-identified, targeted populations (McKenny Vento, Foster youth, English-Learners (ELs), and Special Education students). Please note that this program is solely support, no instructional piece is included in these programs at these sites, simply support. That said, after many hours of negotiating, we reached agreement on the impact upon our members at the sites; namely the nurses and those folks who go to campus to teach virtually. We have attached the language. In essence, there is language that ensures the small cohorts are to have separate areas on campuses - entrances, exits, bathrooms, play areas, office, copy machines, etc. There is also an isolation tent if symptoms are found - nurses will provide input for maps and PPE equipment placement/use and PD on screening, among other topics. Teachers’ classrooms will not be used, and there will not be any interference/disruption to the synchronous instruction. This program is for classified folks to help students with asynchronous work, and students’ social wellbeing (e.g. play, crafts, and lunch).

High School Youth Sports MOU

Posted March 5, 2021

An agreement was reached on High School Youth Sports Activities/Training following the youth sports guidelines set forth by CIF/NCS, CDPH and, ACDH. Additionally, the agreement was reached upon the impact on coaching staff, Athletic Directors, and Nurses. The language ensures that PPE equipment will be provided along with the training needed on COVID protocols and screenings. There will be an isolation tent and multiple hand washing stations provided along with entry/exit pathway maps. Meetings were held with student athletes, parents, and staff, reviewing the protocols that have been put in place. Practices and training started Wednesday. Thanks to the bargaining team: Kristy Prasad (Athletic Director - Hayward High School), Jilla Azad (Nurse at Tennyson High School), Mary Walsh (Vice President of HEA), and Mercedes Faraj (President of HEA).

HEA’s National Education Association (NEA) Delegate Election is over.  We had eight(8) positions and three(3) nominees. As positions are awarded by a plurality vote, when there are fewer nominees than positions unchallenged seats are awarded to the nominees without requiring a ballot.

Thank you for stepping up, and congratulations to our 2021 NEA/RA Delegates: Chantaine Fauntleroy, Elvia Gauzin, and Charles Jones!
