Agenda Item Summary: The Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) community is grateful for the staff’s commitment to our schools to ensure our students are supported. In all of our schools, we have observed staff members serving to meet the needs of our students by providing coverage during these challenging times.

We have designed a compensation structure for staff members who voluntarily give up their planning time in order to provide classroom coverage due to a staff shortage or teacher absence.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the compensation for staff planning period coverage as described in the attached memo.
