Re: I agree, online works in college,

If schools are closed for another year or at least semester, do you still get paid? And I don't mean unemployment, but regular pay.

My DIL said that in Alberta the teachers were paid their full salary in this last term while closed. My older grandson was in 5th grade and his teacher sent emails constantly with assignments, etc. that he had to complete and send back and also had a virtual classroom meeting every Friday afternoon so that the kids could spend "time" in a group setting with her and even just to talk to each other.

My younger grand son was in 3rd grade and was basically on his own. My DIL had to order and pay out of pocket for school work to do online.

Seems the teachers should have been expected to do the same for all grade levels and should have had a coordinated program mandated by the school district, especially if they were being paid.
