Directives: Educators not given School Laptops

Members of the UPE have reported that they are still waiting for their school laptop to be given to them. The institutes where they work have provided various reasons for the delay. The UPE deems this unacceptable since all Educators are equally entitled to access to resources.

For this reason, we feel compelled to direct our members to act as follows; 

Members of the UPE who to date have not been provided with a school laptop, are to refrain from using their own personal devices.

Members of UPE who haven’t been given a school laptop are to refrain from inputting/handing in any marks and or resources or material involving the use of such devices. 

We hope that this situation will be promptly resolved, given that practically half the current academic year has been completed.
