    We get ours the last week of school, which means this year it won't be until the end of June because of all the snow days we accumulated. Our last day is on a Friday the 20th.



    Thanks :)

    We don't sign a new contract each year. We negotiate 3 year contracts through our union. Unless you are leaving or have been terminated, it's expected that you're coming back.in August we get a letter listing our pay for the new year (which matches with the negotiated interact so there are no surprises) and also lsts how many sick days you have in bank, hw much money is in your coursework remuneration account.

    I just got my contract for the 13-14 year a couple of weeks ago. That's pretty normal for here. Unless you are told on the last day of the previous year that you won't be rehired, it is expected that you will return.

    I signed my contract in 1997, and I don't have to sign another one as long as I stay in the district.

    Are you gals all Paras?

    I know paras usually have to wait until the end of the school year and do sign one every year..at least we do in my district.


    Thank you :)

    In my area "contracts" aren't really a thing. The union and board put out a "negotiated agreement" for both paras and teachers, and that's what they call "the contract." It's not something individualized with your salary/placement that you sign or anything. My para doesn't have one to sign either. She had an end of the year "summative conference" just like the teachers did, where they talked about her performance and told her she'd be back next year working in my program again.

    Paras don't get contracts in my district. Paras can begin and end employment at any time during the academic year.

    I signed mine last week. We do yearly contracts in my district. Im surprised some of you sign them so early in the year. You would think admin would want more time to evaluate your performance.

    I honestly don't know. They were supposedly mailed out to us two Fridays ago. Hmm. I'm not planning on going back to my job so I don't really care though.

    If a contract has been negotiated (there have been several times we didn't have one until the end of the year), then paras and annual teachers sign them at the end of the school year.
