My kids school has 45% non attendance rate today.
I knew it would be high but that’s massive.
May be time to shut school then.

With school holidays so close, I don't understand why the government don't just bite the bullet and close them now. Even if they have to shorten the other school holiday periods later.


Just got the final figures; only a 14% absentee rate, but that is Iggies for you! ;)

If schools are closed soon will teachers still be paid in full if they are unable to teach via skype etc to students?
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

I can't see many schools not being able to teach remotely. Our plan is to go with Microsoft Teams and also SEQTA Forums. Our teachers are currently teaching both live, and remotely, for each lesson.

Our school is also heading down the Teams path as it seamlessly (ahem) links with the rest of the 365 Suite...

All teachers have been told that their programs on SEQTA need to be completely ready to go for online learning by the end of Wednesday...

Most teachers are pretty good, but we have run across some issues in the Junior school due to Shared classes and multiple programmes, Junior School don't like change but for their students to be able to access the full programme while they are at home, they are going to have to make adjustments... they can be a precious bunch... :)

Surely teachers aren't going to take the April school holidays off? They should be working flat out to prepare for a term of learning via remote methods?

If kids are found to be roaming the streets or hanging out at malls the parents need to cop penalties

So what do you reckon most of them have been doing for the past 2 weeks, while wrangling the classes that they already have, not knowing if they were going to be shutdown, but not actually shutdown because parents/government will still expect them to teach students while not onsite.

Nah you're right screw their holidays...

Everyone is making huge sacrifices at the moment, teachers are no different.

Banks closing their doors for the rest of the week because of early school closures in Melbourne, the flow on effect is huge and totally understandable why we haven't closed schools.

Not trying to start an argument, just a question


Do teachers think they should/will be paid if kids finish school early or school closes for a period of time?

Probably should have to use their annual leave like the rest of the workforce

Not sure how they wouldn’t be ‘stood down’ without pay but I wouldn’t be surprised if the government doesn’t step in for teachers

That’s how it should be Jim but considering the amount of holidays teachers take per year (not having a crack) would they have a build up?

If schools shutdown then teachers are still going to be expected to teach remotely, so why wouldn't they be paid?

Don’t have an issue with that, would it be a full week?

Again it’s a question I don’t know the answer to so that’s why I’m asking, not “trolling”

You’ll be earning every $ as well when it happens.
Working remotely with staff is hard enough, I’d hate too have to do it with kids

Good luck with it as it’s going to be a testing time for all.

We've had school of the air for 60 years, not sure how "remote" teaching is any different, surely there's already some form of blueprint there

In answer as to why teachers wouldn't get paid, is that a large percentage are either relief or contracted.

no workee, no monee.

So all these parents that whinge about teachers not doing their job - now you'll get to do it for them.

Let's see how you go with that. :roll:

Still no evidence of community spread of CV in Australia, every case so far has been linked to an OS traveller.
