We require teachers submit their availability on a month to month basis to ensure flexibility for both teachers and students. Your availability for the upcoming month is due by the 20th of the current month.
Why do we need your monthly availability?
We want to build consistent and efficient schedules for both our teachers and students. While we expect your teaching days to stay the same from month to month, we understand that life happens and you may have some dates unavailable during a certain month. Once submitted, we run our proprietary, automated scheduling mechanism that will populate lessons for the upcoming month.
Why do I have to submit my availability by the 20th?
The office will reach out to monthly students about 5-6 days before the end of each month to confirm dates scheduled for the following month. We need to know what days you may need to take off before contacting our monthly students with their upcoming schedule.
- Remember: Monthly students will not be scheduled on days you have told us you are unavailable for, but semester students will still be scheduled regardless of a teacher’s absence recorded on their monthly availability. Click here for more details.
How do I submit my monthly availability?
You can submit your monthly availability on the FMC Teacher App! You will be sent the task on the 15th of each month and have five days to complete. For a step by step guide to submitting your monthly availability, click for iPhone or Android.
What do I do if I have an extended absence coming up?
Extended absences can include vacations, performance gigs, and medical leave, including maternity/paternity. Generally, these absences are a week or more. Please call our office to discuss a plan for any extended time off.
