Fairfax Co. Teachers Want Pay for Extra Work Accommodating Quarantined Students

Teachers in the Fairfax County Public Schools system want more money for the extra hours they say they’re expected to work to keep quarantined students up to speed, their union said.

The Fairfax Education Association said its members are expected to either livestream or record their Zoom lessons for quarantined children while checking in with ill or quarantining students several times a week, WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

The teachers are required to begin accommodating those students no later than day three of the quarantine, which currently is 14 days.

“The two biggest things we are asking for is a consideration of where can we fit this into the contract currently and what can we take off the teacher’s plate to give them more time,” said union representative Kimberly Adams, WTTG reported. “If that’s simply not possible, then how [we can] compensate those hours after or before school that will be spent doing this work.”

FCPS Superintendent Scott Brabrand said earlier this week that the extra requirements are a short-term solution to a short-term problem, WTTG reported.
