I cannot hear you!
Nicole, you are breaking up.
I hear nothing
Sound is breaking up. My microphone is muted so it doesn't interfere
in my past zoom meetings the video needs turned off to help in the sound
Video good; audio nothing
I hear you now.
Thanks! I can hear you now!
Sounds much better, thank you.

Everyone should put yourself on mute to avoid contamination of ambient noise....
Guidance Regarding COVID-19 Positive Tests of a staff member and/or Quarantine of a staff member1. What do we do and how do we notify employees when this happens?2. Is there a difference between a positive test result and diagnosis without test but with quarantine.
Would FEMA reimbursement also include continuing to provide food to students in need even though we may not have adequate funds coming in to offset costs?
Would the FEMA application help with cost of computers for schools that do not have enough computers for their students?
The FEMA request for public assistance form linked from the B & E website has an expiration date of 12/31/19. I do not find another available form directly from FEMA. Is this an issue?
We will see if there is an updated link to the FEMA request.
How has COVID-19 related legislation impacted unemployment benefits to employees? At a high level, how have eligibility and benefit payouts changed, particularly for those employed in the public sector?It sounds like my employees would earn more if we would furlough/layoff employees. Does that sound correct? Most employees make under $18/hour. They would make state unemployment and get the extra $600 per week from federal? Does that come in their weekly unemployment checks?
In regard to paying staff and contracts, how does this apply to our School Resource Officer? We contract with WPD. Thanks.
Are County Board of DD schools eligible for the CARES Act monies?
Beverly keeps mentioning school districts. Does this only apply to schools? What about public libraries?
How does a school apply for CARES funding?
Have any other garnishments been suspended? Chapter 13, etc?
Does every entity need to post the DOL poster?
Div C - Emergency Family & Medical leave exp act.: I'm told that many of the laborers associated with a non-OFCC funded school construction project are utilizing this clause to stay at home. They are supposedly utilizing it in conjunction with the fact that they have an elderly family member living with them and or children under 16 years old. What onus do the prime/sub contractor and or CM@Risk have to show proof to the District (Owner) to justify work slowdowns/schedule extensions (claims) associated with reductions in on-site workforce.

Will there be a snapshot or notes posted from this presentation for reference?
what about if the child is significant disabilities and requires full time adult supervision but is over the age of 18-
What if the employee must care for a child who is over the age of 18, but is on an IEP, therefore still in school?
Yes, agree some cliff notes would be appreciated.
Agreed and a FAQ document to the examples provided would be helpful as well. Thanks!
We have a large number of substitutes applying for unemployment. They are employed on an as needed basis. Should they be eligible for unemployment benefits?
When our Board approves supplemental contracts or stipends, the resolution includes language to prorate the amount if the work is partially completed. Does this cover us?
If contracts were paid out in full would we also have to give them a step for the year of service next year?
Can't the district assign these positions to work from home? Offer virtual meetings?
I am seeing smoke signals that we expect to run over possibly 10-15 minutes. We will be covering student issues along with some ideas for your TO DO list. We hope you can stick with us.
Please let us know if any notes will be provided. I have to leave for a 1 pm ETR/IEP virtual meeting.
Heard in a meeting earlier today that ODE will be issuing guidance on evaluations by the end of the week. Hard to say we can 'complete' them when OTES requires SLO data and the majority of our teachers are C teachers and that data is required.
The webinar will be posted. In addition, we are updating our articles/guidance by topic very regularly. These are all located on our Resource Page.
Can a board forgo evaluations for staff unless they are a concern for non-renewal? We do not have a collective bargaining agreement. We are an ESC.
is this recording going to be available to us after this webinar?
Yes. It will be posted on our Resource page.
I have to jump off due to a 1:00 p.m. Thanks for the webinar and important updates.
Dr. Erich Merkle
