11-16-21 Support for School Staff Wellness

Dear School Staff,

Like many districts across the country, Milwaukee Public Schools recognizes the challenges that have plagued our school staff throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I have heard from countless staff members expressing the increased need for additional school support. After careful consideration for the wellness of our students and school staff, I have decided to implement the following measures to support students and our staffing needs:

  1. MPS will actively pursue retired educators and limited-term employees to serve as substitute teachers. 
  2. School Support Teachers (SST) and Achievement Gap Reduction (AGR) teachers will serve as building substitute teachers at the discretion of the principal/school leader to be flexible to allow for instructional coaching and professional development.
  3. District record and professional development days, November 15, 2021, and December 23, 2021, will allow for school staff to have the option to work from their respective school location or a remote location.
  4. December 10, 2021, will be considered an early student release day to allow for staff planning from their respective school location or a remote location. Additional information about this schedule change is forthcoming to families.
  5. Central Services staff will support schools with student arrival, dismissal, lunch, observations, special lessons, or secretarial duties/responsibilities. 

It is with heartfelt appreciation that I express gratitude for the amazing work you do on a daily basis for the students in Milwaukee Public Schools.
