I am also a teacher in a right-to-work state. The union which is usually pretty weak, asks all teachers who are resigning due to their district's Covid policies, register with them first. I think it's so they can fight things like sanctions against your certification for job abandonment during a contract year. Do you find this also where you are?

Teachers are on contracts for a school year, if they quit their job without the district finding a replacement for them it's job or contract abandonment. Where I teach the sanctions for that is a one-year suspension of your certification.

All I can say is that I do not trust that my district to make teacher health and safety a priority. And I'm prepared to quit if the arrangements they've made are not acceptable. We are supposed to resume in-person classes on Sept 10th. We are in a COVID hotspot and the mayor of our city has issued a shelter in place order until December. My school, while located in the city proper, belongs to a district that is not part of the city schools system.

The problem there is Essential Academic kids are also often those whose health conditions make them more vulnerable to serious complications from contracting Covid.
