«We are surprised that they apparently did not intend to warn and debrief the sponsors who must now find a way to implement their new agreement before it is widely released.» The agreement was put to a vote by members of the UFT union in May 2014 and adopted.  Many regular teachers fear that formal procedures will be overturned and that accelerated atR Teacher Education Act 3020-a by the New York City Department of Education, if approved, could also lead to the application of similar rules to the rest of teachers, especially new teachers, who are pushed to ATR status by the current school phases and closures. In addition to the increase in staff, the ATR has increased costs because its teachers are generally older and continue to receive contractual pay increases – even if they are not working. On average, ATR teachers have 18 years of service and a salary of 98,126 $US, compared to 10.2 years and 84,108 salaries for a total of NYC teachers.10 The city and the UFT accepted a contract that increased salaries by 19 percent between November 1, 2009 and November 30, 2018. The final increase under the agreement will be 3 per cent on June 16, 2018, bringing the maximum salary for teachers to $119,472.11. There is another group of ATRS that are overwhelmed for closed programs, low enrollment, loss of funding or whatever. So, we`re going back to mandatory interviews? Are we going to shoot if there is no investment? What will the rotation look like? 2014 Accord was a correct weekly rotation? Looks like the DOE and the UFT are stunned when it comes to ATRS! Excess has always been hard, but it`s missed the service. The UFT should never have accepted this ATR substance. All membership fees have been significantly weakened.
No teacher can really change, unless they are neophytes (without pressure) or are no more than 10 years old. All of these issues need to be part of the discussion when we consider a new treaty! The new ATR agreement cancels the 2014 and 2011 ATR agreements. It also follows the 2007-2009 contract by referring to ATRs. I guess we`ll continue to have S/U reviews. The city leaders` union is blowing up the «failed leadership» of Chancellor Richard Carranza, who has reached a new last-minute agreement to get many more teachers to work at home. «The Chancellor and his team have once again shown a complete lack of respect for headteachers, as we are still waiting for the DOE to publish information on the new memorandum they signed yesterday just before the closure of the activities, an agreement that the press has already reported,» the CSA said. This new ATR agreement will make termination easier for you because Danielson sections are easier to handle. Remember that Danielson himself admitted that she would never use the headings to evaluate teachers. In a difficult class, it is very easy to become ineffective. Or any small false complaint from a student can also get you out. And some of you may never have a chance to regain your reputation, because no one will hire you permanently. The job losses of ATR teachers are usually due to the closure of poorly functioning schools.
Teachers who are «exasperated» (licensed) due to school closures apply for positions in other schools or end up in a reserve pool if no school hires them. In addition, teachers who have been removed due to work delivery problems or problematic issues may be granted ATR status (if any) under a legal, regulatory or mandatory arbitration agreement. schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/C3773DE1-E20C-4950-9D24-0DFFBD1656B2/0/ATRAgreementwithUFTNotefromChancellor.pdf In addition, some ATR teachers convicted of Education Act 3020-a would not be placed in temporary positions, but would remain in the rotation of ATR teachers from one school to another within the same district.
