AASBO STATEMENT ON COVID-19
Conference Postponed Till Fall 2020

Arizona ASBO Members,

 

We hope you are doing well and settling to the start of summer.  The triple digit heat reminds us that we live in the glorious state of Arizona.  
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to provide you with an update on our ongoing efforts to continue assisting Arizona ASBO members while also protecting the health and safety of our staff and members. We are in unprecedented times, but we are confident that we will weather this crisis together as a resilient community.

 

Spring and Summer Conferences

Due to these uncertain times, the safety of our members and staff being at the forefront, and the unknown challenges districts will be facing with the opening of schools, the AASBO Board has decided to move the summer conference scheduled July 15th -18th to Sunday August 30th - Wednesday September 2nd. We have been working relentlessly with the Marriott hotel to come up with alternative dates and due to the size of our conference, taking up virtually the entire hotel, these dates were the only dates available in September or October. We have also worked with our Marriott overflow hotel, speakers and support services to coordinate this change and they have been able to accommodate these changes. With this change, it will require that we cancel the Spring Conference this year which was scheduled for the same time frame.
We will also be working very closely with the hotel to establish safety protocols that will be needed for the conference. Marriott Hotels have been proactive in this area and have already established specific protocols for their hotels.
Lizette Huie and Karla Soto will bring the Professional Development committee together to look at PD sessions for the conference with the goal being to utilize those sessions from the spring conference and combining them with summer conference to create the best of the best sessions for our members. They will also be exploring new sessions directly related to issues and lessons learned from the pandemic.
We will continue to keep you updated as things progress. Stay tuned.

 

July Webinar Forum

In lieu of holding our conference in July, we will be providing our members a free, all-day Webinar forum on July 15th, 2020 in partnership with ASBA. The forums will consist of speaker panels from the various district operational departments such as maintenance, transportation, food services, IT, Business, Accounting and others plus those forums provided from ASBA. The forums will be back to back so our members will be able to attend one, two or all of the forums as they choose. As the planning for this day progresses, we will be sending out more information on the details of these forums.

 

As we stay “socially distant”, please keep connected with your fellow AASBO members.  AASBO is an organization of individuals and we as individuals cannot do it alone.  Reach out and contribute to our AASBO Engage website https://engage.aasbo.org/home.  It is a great tool to stay connected.  Stay safe and we hope to connect with you at our upcoming events.




AASBO COVID-19 Discussion Group

In order to accommodate questions and allow for discussions as to what measures your district and others across the state are taking concerning the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19P) pandemic, AASBO has setup a discussion group in our AASBO Engage Website. We will be sending out an email to all of our members inviting them to receive the email notifications for the discussion group. Just a few of the important questions that have been raised and can be discussed are:

  • Are you requiring staff to return to work or stay home with pay?
  • If you are having staff stay home, are you adopting the resolution currently being circulated by school district attorneys?
  • If you are adopting the resolution are you are having essential classified staff returning to work being compensated in a way different from their current approved rate?


Here is the direct link to the discussion group:

Be sure to turn on your email notifications in Engage in order to receive to feedback from the discussion group.
