Invitation


An AP sends a teacher an e-mail requesting a meeting about various "infractions" and suggests the teacher bring union rep.

The AP puts the word "invitation" in the subject.  This is not an invitation, it is a command. respond  Has this AP lost his mind?

I have had this exact situation. Be prepared, have a pit bull union rep, and maybe the uniserv director there too. Let them defend you.

If you write a response, understand they are pointless and merely are an addendum to the negative letter the AP will put in your file.

Not me--I'm retired. A colleague. I posted here to let people in the school know what is going on.

How awful to put it in the form on "an invitation". However, he is covering his tracks by making sure he has the union rep there.

If this is from Packemin, then the teacher has a good union rep. However, if the infractions are serious, then the rep should have someone from the district take the case or at least advise him on how to handle it.
