Our district has Heath Service come in once a week to test teachers, if they so choose. Also, we have been given 280 COVID hours, separate from personal or medical hours. These hours are to be used if WE get COVID, but not someone in our household. If someone in your household gets COVID and you are forced to stay home with them, then you have to use your personal leave.

If we're home for our 5 day quarantine period we can teach from home and they just have a warm body in the classroom. W are not docked sick days if we're actively on with our classes. If we're sick with COVID and well enough we can also teach from home. If we're too sick to teach then they take sick days. Only non-vac employees have to test weekly and most of them have had COVID the last couple months and are in their 90 day non-testing period, so it's pretty quiet in our little school. Today is the first day we've had a larger crowd out since Christmas.

same here unless you get the stupid shot


If my district had a policy like that one. I wouldnt test either.


Sounds like your district will be hiring and replacing a lot of teachers. People won’t work where they are mistreated in this manner, most districts are way more caring and generous…in Texas anyway


Even though that went unmentioned by me I have noticed that common theme on many threads!! Thanks for mentioning

My district gives u 5 from the state policy then our district has been gracious enough to give us 5 days if we need them , 1 time per school year


Better off to not get tested if you're not sick


Say what you will about CA, but I'm glad to be here.


I sure wouldn’t want that here, but… I appreciate that states get to go their own way and try different things as they see fit for the needs of the individual states, and I think it’s great that you like your state. Cheers.


Testing is done by the individual if they have symptoms. Some are testing if they are close contact. Minimum 5 days out based on any symptoms. Covid peave was granted Fall of 2020 only. Now, you use your sick time (which isn't much) or go without pay. I'm sorry, but if you are being forced to take time off....you shouldn't be penalized in this manner!


And this is one more reason why COVID will become a back burner issue by summer. The news will be busy ramping up trying to make us all hate the other political party, politicians will not have traction on COVID anymore and businesses and schools will have placed their attention elsewhere. The tide has turned.


Our district is still paranoid

It’s not a district thing. It’s a state thing. Schools here in CA do not have anymore money for COVID sick days for teachers. I don’t know why.


I don’t blame them. If I mention that I don’t feel well, I have to test. I was sick back in December, I didn’t say anything and wore a mask.


Didnt governor newsom pass a bill so that California teachers get at least 40 hours for COVID not taken from our sickness balance? That’s what our union told us


Does your district allow extra days or mandate 10 days of quarantine and deduct those days from the teacher’s sick days?

Our district recently changed from 10 to 5 day quarantine.


We test weekly.

That’s insane! First, that’s a TON of subs. Second, the CDC says to quarantine for 5 days, unless you still have symptoms. Third, my district doesn’t take a day if you teach through Teams (assuming you are healthy enough to do so), granted an adult is still needed in the room but the students get actual instruction from their actual teacher. And we don’t test as a district, you individually test if you think you have it.

We do not have testing. If you are a close contact you must quarantine for 5 days or until symptom free. I don’t know anyone coming in while infected or w active symptoms. We do have a mask mandate. It seems like Covid mitigation measures are taken seriously in our district.

Ours doesn’t either, but we have the 5 day rule and are required to wear a mask for 5 days.

Short sighted thinking by the district. As mentioned in the original post, many teachers will avoid testing and go to work, if they have mild symptoms. My district does allow 10 days, but it’s likely the same here. After the 10 days are used, many just don’t test and go to work.

I had to teach while sick with Covid. 🙄

I probably taught with COVID too, but no way of knowing at this point.
