District 75: Information about parental leave during the Chapter 683 Summer Program

If you have worked the Chapter 683 program for the past two years, we want to make you aware of an agreement regarding paid parental leave for those of you who are having a child, adopting a child or caring for a new foster child during or immediately prior to the program. You may now choose to take advantage of paid parental leave during the Chapter 683 program, or you may wait to take paid parental leave until the school year begins — but you must make that decision right away. Please inform the DOE and UFT of your intention by Friday, June 18, 2021.
