  • Pacing Info for October 10th Hello YCTA,   Both YCTA and YCUSD agreed that teachers need time to process and plan for the implementation of Common Core.  This Friday, October 10 (voluntary workday) begins to address that need.   The agenda sent by Doreen sets forth the basic expectation of teachers using the day to plan for instruction in collaborative teams.

  • YCTA: What's up with Oct. 10? Confused.  You are not alone.  People have been asking.  Here is the story so far.Professional Development and Collaboration should be provided                        within our Contracted Hours                        without disrupting instructionYCTA has been consistently delivering this message.  Our members have expressed their concerns regarding the new trend to pull teachers away from their students to provide professional development or collaboration time.  We have asked instead to add hours and days to our contract to provide time to conduct trainings and collaborate together to hone our practice.  (Imagine  the impact on teachers and students in the first full week of instruction this year - teachers required to attend a training, pulled away from their students for THREE consecutive days Tues., Wed. and then ...
