DAILY UPDATE #4 -- 3/19/2020

  • AASD Office Closure:  March 16 through April 3, 2020
    AASD will be sending out a Daily Update, Monday-Friday, throughout the school closure period.  At this time, schools are closed through April 3, with students returning April 6.  Of course, that is open to modification as we go into the upcoming weeks.  The AASD Office will remain closed during the period of time the district is closed.  AASD staff will be working remotely and can be reached at the contact information at the end of this e-mail.
    AASD has created a Google Form for AASD Members to report issues, questions or concerns regarding work-related issues and the COVID-19 virus.  Any issues, questions or concerns submitted via the Google form will be shared daily with the District.  AASD will then share the answers to issues, questions or concerns submitted as those answers are received from the district.  

    The link to share issues/questions/concerns is:
    Please do not share this link outside of AASD membership (classified and certificated management/supervisors).  The link will be active until this crisis is over.  PLEASE CHECK THE DISTRICT’S WEBSITE TO ENSURE YOUR ISSUE/QUESTION/ CONCERN HAS NOT ALREADY BEEN ADDRESSED THERE.

    NOTE:  All previous AASD Daily Updates and Weekly Updates are located on the AASD Website www.aasdcs.org if you need to refer back to them for information.

  • Q and A (March 19, 2020)    (Questions were submitted by AASD members; the answers are from the District)
    Q – Are AASD-represented members in paid status during the closures?  (Repeat question)
    A  --  Yes, all AASD-represented monthly salaried employees are in paid status during the school closures.
    Q -- Now that the La Jolla cluster is been particularly targeted on the news will there be special circumstances such as extra time or crew to clean the campuses?
    A --  PPO will be proceeding cautiously and in coordination with our Nursing & Wellness as well as Public Health officials.
    Follow Up on Issue Regarding Communications in Various Languages:  
    All issues/questions/concerns submitted about letters/communications that are translated into languages not being available have been sent to the Communications Department for resolution.  The Translation Unit manager states the translated documents have been completed and this appears to be an issue of getting the documents posted where leaders and others can access them.
