The North Carolina General Assembly continued their work this week, and we have couple of updates on the bills that were discussed last week. The updates are as follows:
The bill that addressed compensation for teachers and suggested raises for support personnel and non-certified personnel passed in both chambers with some dissent from the Democrats. Democrats dissented due to what they perceived as an insufficient amount. As a reminder, the bill gives $350.00 to teachers and suggests the governor use his COVID relief money to appropriate an additional $600.00 to teachers, support staff, and non-certified personnel.
The bond bill we reported on last week was updated with a new version to show how much each school district will receive if the bond bill passes. The bill remains in the legislature and we will report on any progress.
We know that you are each experiencing a time in your career and life unlike any other. In order to better support your online classroom experience, we have compiled FREE online teaching resources and placed them on our website, ncagteachers.org. These resources will be updated frequently over the coming weeks. They will be available by accessing the home page of our website OR by going through the Member Center/Teacher Resources section (see the screenshots below for steps to access these resources.) In our Teacher Resources section, you can find lessons, notes, PowerPoints, etc. for any agriculture curriculum that has previously been shared with us. We hope this “one-stop shop” for resources can help you prepare more quickly for your students in this difficult time.
If you have any classroom resources to share, please send them to April Pittman at email@example.com. Also, if you have any digital learning resources, please add them to the “Digital Learning Resource Guide” found on our website. This document was created by Laura Parker and is a collaboration among all teachers in the state.
Thank you for your support. Please let us know how we can help you.
The link to Online Resources will be posted on our Home Page, but will also be available by accessing the Member Center/ Teacher Resources. Here’s how to access that area for NCATA Members in three steps:
