School association does not expect ISBE to enforce mask mandate ‘at this stage’ | https://sahara-acaps.org/school-association-does-not-expect-isbe-to-enforce-mask-mandate-at-this-stage/ Sun, 20 Feb 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://sahara-acaps.org/school-association-does-not-expect-isbe-to-enforce-mask-mandate-at-this-stage/ (The Center Square) — An association representing large school districts in Illinois expects the issue of mask mandates to eventually die down, despite the attorney general’s appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court.

(The Center Square) — An association representing large school districts in Illinois expects the issue of mask mandates to eventually die down, despite the attorney general’s appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Earlier this month, a circuit court judge ruled Pritzker’s mask and exclusion policies for students and vaccine or testing mandates on staff are null and void. Thursday, an appeal court fired Governor’s call. The Attorney General is attractive to the Illinois Supreme Court, saying the governor’s warrants are still in effect.

“The failure of the Court of Appeals to address the significant legal issues in question has added to the confusion resulting from the circuit court’s decision giving priority to a relatively small group of plaintiffs who refuse to acknowledge the science or necessity public health measures to protect vulnerable Illinois residents,” Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul said.

The Large Unit District Association’s executive director, John Burkey, told The Center Square that “things continue to be turned upside down, in terms of the guidance that actual districts are receiving.

“What I think, it’s pretty clear that we’re moving towards a point where masking will no longer be mandatory statewide in schools and I think with the appeals court rulings…we’re only ‘one step, maybe a big step closer to that,” Burkey said.

While some of its member districts are still requiring masks due to COVID-19 transmission rates in their areas, Burkey said many of its districts are recommended for mask-wearing.

“But I think our districts view this much more as a local issue than they did a few weeks ago. [after the circuit court decision],” he said.

The Illinois State Board of Education will not say whether it will continue to seek non-recognition status for the growing number of schools that optionally mask in defiance of Pritkzer’s insistence on that his orders are always valid.

Since the governor’s orders in August, the ISBE has sued punitive schools, both public and private, for failing to enforce mask mandates, or writing optional or recommended mask policies. The agency was pushed back by the courts and by the Joint Administrative Rules Committee resulting in procedural changes.

In the most recent updated list released Jan. 7, the ISBE has about seven private schools listed as recommended for nonrecognition status, including two on probation. Four public schools are listed as on probation.

A request for comment from the ISBE on whether the agency will pursue non-recognition of a growing number of mask-optional schools, or the number of such districts, was not returned. A statement was provided instead.

“We are disappointed with the appeals court’s decision and concerned about the health of those in school – particularly vulnerable children and adults,” said state education superintendent Carmen Ayala. “We hope to do everything we can together to preserve the ability to continue in-person learning.”

“The court made it clear that school districts can continue to maintain their own mitigations,” Ayala said. “School district leaders should continue to consult with your own legal counsel as to the specific impact of the decision on your school district.”

As for the districts’ concerns about being punished by the ISBE, Burkey said the districts believe that may soon dissipate.

“I don’t think they expect the ISBE to pursue this at this point,” Burkey said.

A fracas over proof of COVID-19 vaccination at a Swift Current volleyball game in Swift Current has swelled into a province-wide hubbub.

A fracas over proof of COVID-19 vaccinations at a volleyball game in Swift Current became a political issue on Thursday as Saskatchewan school divisions were puzzled by an apparent change in government advice provincial on COVID-19.

Education Minister Dustin Duncan wrote to school division presidents on Wednesday, warning them not to exclude unvaccinated students from after-school activities after some of his Weyburn constituents complained about a proof requirement vaccination at an upcoming provincial championship game, where a local medical officer of health implemented the measure because the host school is in an active outbreak of COVID-19.

Saskatchewan School Boards Association president Shawn Davidson said Duncan’s letter has caused confusion among the province’s 27 divisions, none of which have policies limiting what a student can do if they don’t. is not vaccinated or does not provide proof of a negative test.

“Confusion is a fair term when it comes to what she created,” Davidson said.

The confusion was also apparent in the Legislative Assembly, where NDP education critic Carla Beck accused Duncan of pandering to vaccine opponents. Duncan accused the opposition of wanting to deny unvaccinated children the chance to go to school.

At one point, NDP Leader Ryan Meili was asked and agreed to withdraw his use of the word “criminal.”

Neither party explicitly supports the exclusion of unvaccinated children from extracurricular activities.

Duncan said he sent the letter to clarify the government’s position that extracurricular activities are as essential as classroom learning.

“We have always said that the ability to participate in school learning and school activities should not be dictated or determined by a student’s immunization status,” Duncan said.

The decision to require proof of vaccination or a recent negative test at the Swift Current tournament, however, was not made by the Chinook School Division, but by the local medical officer of health, who has the authority, under public health provincial government, to introduce stricter rules where deemed necessary. . Spokesperson Joanne Booth wrote in a statement that Swift Current Comprehensive High School is in an active outbreak of COVID-19.

“The Chinook School Division currently has no general requirement for students participating in extracurricular activities to be vaccinated, other than as a result of additional measures implemented by the SHA during outbreaks, for an individual who tests positive and for close contact with a positive case,” Booth wrote.

Davidson said Duncan’s letter “diverged” from previous government messages, giving divisions some leeway to implement measures on the advice of local medical officers.

The Department of Health confirmed the local agent in Swift Current, for example, recommended that attendees present proof of vaccination or a recent negative test. The ministry said it sent a letter to divisions earlier this month stating that all school events were exempt from proof of vaccination or testing requirements.

“From the feedback I received, the divisions were working on some of these challenges at their local level, which certainly led to complications,” Davidson said.

Public health orders have made explicit exceptions to self-isolation orders and other rules to help schools operate. Duncan said he felt extracurricular activities were an integral part of it and should be exempt from proof of vaccinations or test orders.

Davidson said he agreed extracurricular activities were “vitally important” to these operations, but said he did not believe they deserved the same status as classroom learning.

“It doesn’t align with our essential service, which is education,” Davidson said. “And there’s a line there that we’re having a bit of a hard time tying it all together.”

Davidson said divisions do not have the authority to set policies at institutions where many after-school programs take place. Local curling or skating rinks owned by cities or private operators, for example, may choose or be required to request proof of vaccination or a recent negative test. Traveling sports teams may have to stop at restaurants with the same requirements, Davidson noted.

“There are so many things beyond the control of school divisions.

He worries the smash has created a public perception that divisions want to bar students from events because they aren’t vaccinated — something no school division has a policy of doing, he said. he declares.

“I think we understand the intent, that there is no government intent to implement a large-scale vaccination mandate for those who wish to participate in extracurricular activities,” Davidson said.

“In fact, as divisions we support that, but we have to be aware that there are all these complexities that, with our communities and within the provincial health order, we have to be able to resolve. .”

SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) — Full football fields and fans should result in a net profit for the South Dakota State High School Activities Association (SDSHAA), a portion of which is shared with participating teams.

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted the SDSHAA to limit fans for the 2020 State Soccer Championships. Even with limited fans, the state and substate games generated a net profit of $64,165. Spending was higher than in a typical year, as the SDSHAA reimburses approximately 50% of all losses incurred by the host site for sub-state gaming.

The expenses for 2020 were $87,455 which is subtracted from the gross income of $151,620 to arrive at the net income of $64,165.

Under SDHSAA rules, sub-state host schools pay expenses on receipts. Participating schools will each receive 50% of the profits. If the game loses money, SDHSAA reimburses the host school for 50% of the mileage paid to the visiting team or 50% of the loss, whichever is less.

The championship season was also different in 2019. The state moved championship games to South Dakota State University in Brookings due to construction of the DakotaDome at the University of South Dakota.

Revenue in $149,190 with $45,861 in expenses for a total net profit of $103,329. Spending was lower in 2019 in part because rental fees for Brookings Stadium were lower than the $50,000 rental fee for the DakotaDome, according to SDSHAA.

The year 2018 is an example of some typical expenses. The officials cost $10,654. The team’s expenses were around $4,600, which is slightly lower than in previous years. Tickets and passes were an expense of $2,500.

Football and wrestling have been two of the biggest revenue generators for high school championships.

Football has generally overtaken wrestling in terms of net profit since 2015.

Wrestling revenues are generally higher in years when the Sioux Falls Championships.

Shillong | 22 october

The Meghalaya SSA Schools Association (MSSASA) decided to hold a mass rally in Shillong on November 9 over the state government’s failure to meet their demands.

Speaking to reporters here today, MSSASA President Aristotle Rymbai said the association has already staged various protests in recent months, but to date the state government has failed had never called the teachers to discuss, indicating that the education department has not been bothered by the plight of teachers they have faced every day for the past four months.

“This inflexible attitude has led us to make this decision to hold a mass rally on November 9 in Shillong and if the state government continues to turn a deaf ear to our request, we will continue to organize various agitation programs. in the future, ”said Rymbai.

Rymbai said that MSSASA’s demands are not only to release their long-pending salary, but also to regularize all SSA teachers in the state and also to implement teacher pay scales as per the prescribed standards of the right to education (RTE).

He added that there are 12,541 SSA teachers in the state and in the past four months teachers have had to face so many hardships due to the non-release of their salaries by the state government. On the other hand, Rymbai informed that MSSASA had previously met Minister of Education Lahkmen.

Rymbui to this day, they have never received a positive response from him, indicating that as the head of the department he cares the least about the fate of the teachers.

Rymbai said that in accordance with the prescribed standards of Chapter 3 of RTE 2009 and Section 7 Clause (1), Section Clause (VII), it was clearly stated that all state governments should set aside special corpus funds for the payment of salaries until the central government releases the sanctioned amount to the state government, but so far the state government has never had a special corpus fund to pay teachers’ salaries of the ASS.

In this regard, the President of MSSASA said that they have filed an RTI complaint with the Ministry of Education and in a few days they will receive the report and everything will become clear about the position of the state government.
