COVID-19 RESOURCES

These are unprecedented times, COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic, and Federal, state and local governments are taking steps to slow the spread of the disease by limiting crowds in public settings, such as schools, workplaces, public transportation, and cultural and sporting events. These necessary measures not only disrupt everyday life, but cause economic uncertainty for millions of working people.

The IFT wants you to be informed and prepared for the implications coronavirus may have to your health, your family, and the students and communities you serve.

PAID ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE DAYS LEGISLATION

A proposed new Act will allow employees of K-12 school districts, community colleges, and public universities to receive paid administrative leave if they or their child are required to quarantine because of a positive COVID-19 test result, or close contact with a person who had a confirmed case of COVID-19, or exclusion for COVID-19 symptoms in accordance with school district policy. The law will apply for the 2021-2022 school year and is retroactive to the beginning of the year for employees who are vaccinated or become vaccinated within 5 weeks of the effective date of the Act. The Act also includes a provision guaranteeing pay for any school closure or e-learning day if the closure precludes a school district paraprofessional employee from performing their regularly scheduled duties. Below is a list of frequently asked questions about the proposed law.
