SELPA Aides Going to 7 Hours

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! 

The union is not stopping there, we are in the data collection phase for other Aide positions
