Many teachers will be concerned about the memo that went out today regarding the A-2 and A-3 positions:

“This memo is to advise all parties about the status of A-2 & A-3 positions for the 2016-2017 school year. Staff members who currently hold positions in the A-2 & A-3 stipend areas are advised that the positions expire on June 30th, 2016. All A-2 & A-3 positions are filled annually by the Board of Education upon the recommendation of the Superintendent (pg.50 BFT contract). As of this writing the stipend positions listed below will not be filled going into the 2016-2017 school year. If further reductions become necessary you will be notified in a timely fashion. The uncertainty and volatility of the budget process has made this notification necessary. If the position you are interested in does not appear below, that position may be posted next week. If you are interested in a stipend position, fill out an online internal application. Per the BFT contract incumbents are automatically considered for reappointment, no additional application action is required.”
