ALL MEMBERS WHO ARE ON EWP
The next to last paragraph in the letter sent to you by Vanessa Rodriguez is incorrect. It states that unless you find a placement, you may be assigned to a role or multiple roles throughout the school year in order to best serve the needs of students. That is completely wrong.
You are not required to work in any role that IS NOT COVERED BY YOUR AREA OF CERTIFICATION. You are especially NOT to cover for laid off aides, clerks or counselors. Nor are you to emergency-sub for substitutes longer then for a day or two. By taking on these roles, you are aiding and abetting the NPS and opening yourself up to liability issues.
Feel free to call the NTU at 973-643-8430 with any questions or concerns you may have.
