RIF Information

The employee list has been sorted by credentials and is currently being looked at for skipping and tie-breaker criteria so HR can make a final determination of which employees need to be noticed. The goal is to have an email to go out this Friday with a tentative cut-off year per credential area that will be noticed. (For example: all Italian credentials hired after 8/8/2017) Please remember that the district is over notifying employees because schedules for next year are not completed at the secondary sites. Actual numbers of lay offs will be closer to 60 and even less if there are retirements and resignations.

There is a meeting with all NVEA members who have received a notice on March 19th in the Board Room at the District Office. CTA Attorneys will be there to check paperwork and prepare those members for a hearing with the district and an administrative judge.
