Summer break! I hope all of you out there are enjoying some well-deserved time off/down time. Here at OPSRC, we know how hard you work for your students. We know about the tireless efforts you put forth to ensure that all your students gets the quality education that they deserve, and we hope that in your downtime you’re getting some much-deserved rest.
I wanted to share some things with you so that you can spend time learning and growing at any time, wherever you’re at. For as much as you’ll spend the summer resting, I also know you’re going to doctor appointments, running errands and all the other things that aren't very convenient during the school year. The other thing I know about teachers is that this is when they spend time trying to better themselves professionally, so I wanted to provide you a few resources to help you do that.

Well, it depends. In a very recent case, Graham Public Schools was on the unfortunate side of this question and was held liable. While leaving school to rush to a family medical emergency, the employee tripped on a mat that had been placed there by the school administration.
