way into 2016 and the second semester. I am hoping you are continually reminded what an integral part you play in the life of each Dallas ISD student. You are inspiring our future leaders and teachers! We want each of our members to know we are partners in your efforts to provide the students of DISD the safe, positive public education experience they deserve. We would also like to provide you with an

update regarding the TEI Class Action Grievance that NEA-Dallas & participants brought against Dallas ISD, citing the system lacked transparency and clarity. The Level II hearing was conducted on December

8 th , at which time the district requested

additional time to review all the documents presented. NEA-Dallas & TSTA attorneys granted the request for the extension. We received the Level II decision from the district on January 19 th which was to deny almost all aspects of the class action grievance. After meeting with the TSTA attorneys and discussing the district’s decision, we proceeded with following the next step of filing a Level III. This hearing is scheduled to be heard by the Dallas ISD Board on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. in the Dallas ISD Administration Board Room.

As an incentive to reduce absenteeism, DCS has implemented an Attendance Bonus Program for drivers,

monitors, and crossing guards. The program is based solely on the employee’s attendance. The amount of these bonuses will be determined annually by the Superintendent or his designee.

DCS Policy 12/019: Attendance Bonus Program (b) Attendance for the purpose of this bonus is defined as not missing more than ten shifts (AM, mid-day, or PM) in a year, Jury Duty, bereavement leave, assault leave, workers’ compensation leave, FMLA leave, other medical leave approved by the Extended Leave Committee, approved professional leave, and military leave will not count as missed shifts for this purpose. Missing any portion of a shift (AM, mid-day, or PM), which results in another employee covering all or part of the shift, will count as a missed shift for this purpose.

In addition to the bonus above, drivers and monitors who complete the entire school year without missing a single

day or portion of a day (without regard to the exceptions and proration used in the incentive

bonus criteria) will be eligible for an additional perfect attendance bonus in an amount determined by the Superintendent or his designee. Starting October 1, 2015, all drivers and/or monitors who were employed by 9/15/15 and have “Perfect Attendance,” with no exceptions, through the last day of school, will receive an additional bonus to be paid in June 2016.

JAY FREDERICK - Molina HS/Teacher

MARGARET PULLINGS - Pat Raney SC/Driver

DISD AR: Jay Frederick was selected this month because he is always going above and beyond in his AR member advocacy by becoming the link between the member & the organization. He continues to introduce new members to NEA-Dallas and share with them the opportunity to be part of an organization he believes in.

DCS AR: Margaret Pullings is one of our ARs at the Pat Raney Service Center. She is very active in her organization and plays a vital part in the relationship between her worksite and the NEA-Dallas office. We can count on her to keep us aware of issues going on, as well as share successes they have experienced. She also knows how important it is for Dallas County Schools employees to know their rights according to policy. As a member and AR, she is an asset to both Dallas County Schools and NEA-Dallas.
