Hello, I know our hourly employees have been patiently waiting for the payout of their 2020-2021 bonus. Unlike regular hours worked, this bonus does not fall under education code 45167 for reimbursement via special check. 
What happened was, during negotiations President, Dawn Dooley submitted an information request for the baseline of hours substitutes and hourly employees worked.
The District came to negotiations committee with an offer,  any hourly employee that worked 500 hours or more during that school year would receive the one time $500.00 bonus.

What a great way to start the 2022-2023 school year. President Dawn Dooley made the announcement at the SELPA open year meeting that the union has been working on recognizing our Special Education Aides at full time equivalent for years. The question that was always asked of the District, why have two five hour Aides overlapping their schedules to support a student when you could potentially have one Aide for 7 hours. These Aides will be eligible for full benefits. These positions will be offered and should be in effect for the target date of September 1, 2022! 

Please see the attached flyers for the Fontana Adult School computer education classes. Intermediate Computer Business Applications and Excel Workshops. These classes are completely FREE!! Bring your ID during the enrollment times to Fontana Adult School, there are a lot of opportunities available in the clerical field at FUSD, maybe now is the time to make that move!
