Rotatuon Or No Rotation? That Is The Question.
Rumors are flying around that ATRs will stay in one school the entire school year, However, according to the DOE ATR rotation is still in force for this school year. When will ATRs be rotated is anybody's guess.?
Originally, ATRs were to be rotated this month and that may still be the case. However, I have also heard that ATRs will stay in one school for the semester It is possible that the ATRs will not be rotated at all. Of course nobody at the DOE or UFT will confirm or dispute the rumors.
Even principals have no clue on how long they can depend on having the ATR in their school. Therefore, they cannot assign ATRs to a class since they cannot depend on the ATR being in his or her school a month from now.
You would think that for stability sake the DOE and UFT would have come to an agreement on how long an ATR is assigned to a school.
