I have been calculating the loss of classtime for ESE teachers having to do paperwork and other things. This is where the current VE teachers are standing:
25 classes for IEPs (the class before or after their planning period)
12 days of FCAT and other testing make ups
5 days trainings (new teachers 10)
5 days coverage for class when there are sub shortages and a co-teach team is split, or one person is out with no sub.
That's an ENTIRE QUARTER! Will things double next year?
