Here in California, and most likely most states, there is a code that prevents us from collecting unemployment during recess periods. However, there are a number of days during the year where I am not called to work ( today for example) from any district. Today was the 100th day that I potentially could have worked this school year, yet I have only worked 74.5 days. Could I possibly be eligible for unemployment for the 25.5 days I did not get offered an assignment? This would probably be to good to be true. Since it comes out of the districts' coffers, I am sure they would fight it tooth and nail, But is it worth a shot? Has anyone tried it?
