The U.S. Department of Labor announced today the launch of its Spanish-language translation of Worker.gov, a website dedicated to informing workers of their rights and federal workplace protections. Spanish-speaking workers and job seekers can visit Worker.gov/es to learn about the department and the laws governing their wages, safety, equality rights, retirement benefits, organizing with coworkers and fair treatment as veterans or service members.



“The launch of Worker.gov in Spanish advances the objective of Executive Order 13166, which encourages federal agencies to provide meaningful access to information to persons with limited English proficiency,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy Tanya L. Goldman. “Language should never be a barrier to workplace equity, and we hope that making this material available in Spanish will reduce language barriers and help Spanish-speaking workers understand their rights in American workplaces.”



The U.S. Census Bureau reports an estimated 41.8 million people, or 13.5 percent of the U.S. population, spoke Spanish at home in 2019.

Many other Labor Department resources are available in Spanish at https://www.dol.gov/general/topic/spanish-speakingtopic. Workers can contact the department at 1-866-487-2365 (TTY 1-877-889-5627) if they have questions or concerns about their rights.

Kane County Animal Control will host its first Rabies and Microchip Animal Clinic of the year on Saturday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Kane County Animal Control, 4060 Keslinger Road in Geneva.

The clinic will be conducted drive-thru style. Dog and cat owners just pull up in their vehicle and let the staff and volunteers do the work. People do not need to get out of their cars, but are asked to please wear a mask so everyone remains safe and protected.

The cost of a one-year rabies vaccine (with tag) is $20 for neutered pets, $35 for non-neutered and $10 for seniors with pets. Microchips are also available for $15. Cash, check, VISA and MasterCard are accepted.

The clinic will run with two teams, each consisting of a doctor and staff, plus clerks to process paperwork and finances. The staff will leash the pet and transport them to the exam station. While the medical crew performs the exam and vaccinations, a clerk completes the rabies certificate and another handles payment. Once the procedure is completed, the vet will communicate with the owner in their car. After each vehicle pulls away, the staff cleans the station for the next client.

The animal control staff maintains proper infection control by wearing masks, gloves and scrub tops. Their goal is to help treat the animals in need and still provide a much-needed resource during these complicated times.

Additional clinics are planned for:

Wednesday May 12th from 4:30pm - 7:00pm
Saturday June 12th from 10:00am - 1:00pm
Dates to be determined for August, September and October.

ComEd agrega $9 millones en asistencia con las facturas y amplía los planes de pago para ayudar a los clientes que luchan con las facturas de electricidad

Parte de un programa de asistencia más amplio
Reconociendo que muchas familias de Illinois continúan siendo afectadas por dificultades económicos debido a la pandemia de COVID-19, ComEd está aumentando los fondos de asistencia por $9 millones para ayudar a los clientes a recuperar su posición financiera.
ComEd trabajó con el personal de la Comisión de Comercio de Illinois, la Oficina del Fiscal General de Illinois, otras grandes empresas de servicios de gas y electricidad de Illinois y un amplio grupo de defensores del consumidor para desarrollar un paquete de soporte integral para ayudar a los clientes residenciales a superar las dificultades continuas de la pandemia. El paquete, que hoy fue aprobado unánimemente por la Comisión de Comercio de Illinois, también incluye opciones mejoradas de arreglos de pago y programas especiales de reconexión para clientes elegibles. Cada uno de estos programas se ofrecerá por un tiempo limitado.
“Los nuevos programas que se ofrecen hoy amplían nuestros esfuerzos para ayudar a los clientes a llegar a un lugar estable”, dijo el CEO de ComEd, Joe Dominguez. “Incluso antes de la pandemia, ComEd brindó a los clientes el apoyo que necesitaban y trabajó con organizaciones comunitarias para generar conciencia entre los clientes que más necesitaban ayuda. En el 2020, conectamos a los clientes con un récord de más de $75 millones en asistencia financiera y apoyamos a más de un cuarto de millón de clientes con subvenciones estabilizadoras ".
Opciones de asistencia para el pago de facturas por tiempo limitado
• Programa de asistencia para el pago de facturas de ComEd. En abril de 2021, ComEd aumentará la cantidad de fondos disponibles para proporcionar más créditos únicos de hasta $500, mientras haya fondos disponibles. Estos créditos son para clientes residenciales elegibles que tienen saldos pendientes o que buscan reconectar su servicio eléctrico.
• Arreglos de pago más flexibles. Hasta el 30 de junio de 2021, ComEd ofrecerá planes de arreglos de pago extendidos, lo que permite a los clientes residenciales distribuir sus saldos pendientes en 18 cuotas mensuales sin pago inicial. Clientes residenciales
elegibles que están pasando por desafíos financieros que se inscriben en un plan de pago de 18 meses sin tener que poner dinero estarán exento de desconexión hasta el 30 de junio de 2021. Todos los demás clientes residenciales elegibles con saldos pendientes pueden inscribirse en un plan de pago de 18 meses con un 10 por ciento de pago inicial hasta el 30 de junio de 2021.
• Asistencia para la reconexión del servicio. Hasta el 10 de julio de 2021, los hogares elegibles que tuvieron desconectado el servicio eléctrico por una razón no relacionada a asuntos de seguridad en 2021 pueden volver a conectar su servicio proporcionando solo el 25 por ciento de su saldo pendiente. Cualquier saldo pendiente restante se transferirá a un plan de 18 meses sin pago inicial.
Opciones adicionales de asistencia de facturación
Los programas ComEd CARE también ofrecen una variedad de opciones de asistencia financiera, mientras hay fondos disponibles, para ayudar a los clientes elegibles a pagar sus facturas de electricidad. Hay programas disponibles para clientes residenciales, pequeñas empresas y organizaciones sin fines de lucro, así como para miembros activados y desplegados de las Fuerzas Armadas de EE. UU., Guardia Nacional, Reservas y veteranos dados de baja honorablemente.
Cualquier cliente que esta pasando por tiempos difíciles o por dificultades con su factura de electricidad debe llamar a ComEd de inmediato al 1-800-955-8237 (1-800-95-LUCES), de lunes a viernes de 7 a.m. a 7 p.m. para obtener más información sobre cómo postularse. Puede encontrar información sobre cada una de estas opciones, junto con los requisitos de elegibilidad, en es.ComEd.com/PaymentAssistance.
ComEd también ofrece alertas de uso y consejos de administración de energía para ayudar a los clientes a administrar el uso de energía para ahorrar dinero ahora y en las facturas de electricidad futuras. Para obtener información, visite es.ComEd.com/OnlineTools.

Nos comprometemos a ayudar a las familias y comunidades a recuperarse de los desafíos económicos actuales. Obtenga información sobre las opciones de asistencia financiera disponibles para ayudar a personas con dificultades para pagar las facturas de energía. Obtenga más información aquí.

Survey Start for State of Illinois

U-46 Designates March 23 as ‘Survey Day’

Date designed to encourage participation in 5 Essentials and Equity and Inclusion surveys
School District U-46 is offering two ways for students to make their voices heard this month. To emphasize the point, the District is designating Tuesday, March 23 as “U-46 Survey Day” to ensure everyone has the space and information available to provide their feedback on two important surveys: the Illinois 5Essentials and the Equity and Inclusion Student Survey.
In addition to students, the 5Essentials Survey invites parents and teachers to share their opinions, and while many already have, the March 23 Survey Day also aims to increase participation rates among both teachers and parents.

The 5Essentials Survey, administered in U-46 since 2013, provides a comprehensive picture of a school’s organizational culture in an individualized report measuring five “essentials” critical for school success: Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction. School Improvement Planning teams across the District use the survey results to better identify a school’s strengths and areas that can be improved.
All teachers and students in 6th through 12th grades can take the survey at any time and will be encouraged to complete the survey during the school day on the 23rd if they have not yet done so.

The version open to parents takes about 15 minutes to complete, is available at http://bit.ly/5EssentialsU46 in Spanish and English, and can be accessed via a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. The responses of parents or guardians remain anonymous.

A 20 percent parent participation rate is required to generate a parental supplemental report, but U-46 is aiming for at least a 35 percent participation rate by school this year for a more reliable and meaningful sample of our parents’ feedback. So far in 2021, 22 of the District’s 57 schools have met or exceeded the District’s 35 percent threshold goal.

The parent report provides important, actionable data for schools. For instance, the winter 2019 “Sidewalk Heroes” campaign with the City of Elgin was inspired by a desire to improve the “supportive environment” at Washington Elementary School by making it safer for students who walk to school during winter weather. Sidewalk Heroes encourages those who are able to keep sidewalks clear of ice and snow in their neighborhoods.

At Ridge Circle Elementary School in Streamwood, 72 percent of parents have already filled out the 2021 5Essentials Survey. Principal Janelle Raine credits a new approach for her high rate of success this year. One school day, her teachers gave their students no homework, and instead the students were told to have their parents look in Canvas, the District’s online learning management system, for their own assignment, which was completing the 5Essentials Survey.

“It turns out kids love to give their parents homework!” Raine said. “I appreciate that parents are taking the time to communicate their thoughts on these important topics. We’re proud of our building, but we want to continue to get better. We use the data from 5Essentials, including the parents’ feedback, to determine what areas we need to continue to grow in.”

U-46’s Survey Day will also focus on the Student Equity and Inclusion Survey, designed to measure how well students feel included and represented in the District’s schools. It is open to students in 4th through 12th grades, and some teachers are asking students to take the survey as part of class time. During Survey Day, teachers will be encouraged to make time for their students to complete the survey. Alternatively, students can also take it on their own time by following a link emailed to their student account.

The Equity and Inclusion Survey was first administered in U-46 last May, and the District is again partnering with Panorama Education, a leading K-12 research company, to manage the survey process to ensure data privacy and security.

So far, nearly 30 percent of 4th through 12th graders have completed the survey with questions such as how well people at their school understand them as a person; how common it is at their school for students to have close friends from different racial, ethnic or cultural backgrounds; and how often they are encouraged to think more deeply about race-related topics.

At Harriet Gifford Elementary School, more than 90 percent of students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade have taken the Equity and Inclusion Survey. The school created a schedule for teachers to indicate which day of the week their students could take the survey in class, and a few weeks ahead of time, Principal Joe Corcoran and Assistant Principal Geynell Lawrence-Tabb delivered a presentation to students to review last year’s survey so that the young people could better understand the questions being asked of them. Another member of the team provided support as needed to classroom teachers.

“Our school really values student voice, and we know that the higher the percentage of responses, the more valid the data is for interpreting,” Corcoran said. “This presentation was well received, it set the tone for the upcoming survey, and we know that we will have some solid data to look at for our School Improvement Plan.”

Corcoran credited Washington Elementary Principal Lori Brandes with his school’s approach and the neighboring school in Elgin, at 77 percent, is also proving that it’s a winning strategy. Across the District in Bartlett, Eastview Middle School Principal Donald J. Donner also explained the survey’s importance to both students and teachers and worked with his English department which administered the survey during classes with 77 percent of students completing the survey. Meanwhile, physical education teachers at Eastview administered the 5Essentials and the school aims to have 100 percent student participation by spring break.

“This is their opportunity to share what's working or not working, how they feel and what they need," Donner said. “If students know why they are doing a survey, and feel there is value and their voice will get heard, they are all in.”

The Equity survey will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 26. More information about it, including a preview of this year’s sample questions and the results for the 2020 survey, can be found on the District’s website here.

The 5Essentials portal will close for this school year at the end of the day April 2. While the dates are in flux because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the results of the 5Essentials surveys are always shared with principals and superintendents, as well as on the 5Essentials reporting site and will be part of the State School Report Card website in Fall 2021.

ATTENTION: PARENTS, TEACHERS, SOCIAL WORKERS... As everyone knows, October is National Bullying Prevention Month. I am the author of books about bullying issues and prevention strategies for people of varying ages. Visit my website [www.DrElanaAshley.com] and scroll down the homepage to see the books for adults and children.

If you continue to scroll down the homepage, past the photo of me and my educational puppet team, you will see two videos -- one is a one-on-one interview with a TV host; the 2nd is an interview of myself and my educational colleague Ellie Elephant with a 2nd very different TV Host who talks with us about important issues related to bullying -- a topic which continues to be problematic everywhere. Stay safe and healthy! Dr. Elana Ashley

An Economy and a Future That Includes All Our Citizens! As much as we might hate it the 2020 election season started the second the mid-terms were over. Many old hats on the left were surprised that many of the young Democratic candidates won while espousing progressive policies and goals. If this is any indication then to win in 2020 Democrats need to offer the poor and middle class a new, 'New Deal'. Damaged and disheartened, lied to and taken advantage of by the wealthy and those determined to hold power at any cost, they are yearning for relief and someone to actually do something to better their circumstances, and give them hope for a better future for them and their children. Healthcare for all, Free tuition at public colleges, Social Security at age 50 and some form of a limited Universal Basic Income to lift all our citizens out of abject poverty and give all our children a financial platform with which to begin their lives as productive adults in a thriving economy. I watched an episode of the business program ‘On the Money’ on Sunday July 30, 2017. The first and main topic was something called Universal Income. The idea that instead of all the poverty programs and such, the Government should just give everybody a check every month for $1000 dollars. When one considers the gap between rich and poor, the rate of automation and the fact that there will never be enough jobs to go around it might be a better way of keeping our folks out of abject poverty. The drawback was the cost. One of the commentators said it would cost upwards of 3 trillion dollars. However there is a way to reach the goal of a Universal Income, eliminating abject poverty, and at a much lower cost. Here’s how. Start by expanding Social Security. Eliminate the cap on taxable income and raise the tax to 8% from the current rate of 6.2%. Then lower the age of eligibility to 50 years. Create a stipend that will give a check to all adults and High School Grads of $1000 a month. Those who do not finish High School should have to wait till they are 20 to encourage them to finish school. They can use this fund to support them if they go to college or to help them in getting started in life. Our wealthy students are able to go to college and do well precisely because they have a financial platform to support them. This would give all our students the same support. Every child we shepherd thru College is possibly the guy who will cure cancer or invent star drive or save the planet. Investing in our children is like buying a lottery ticket for humanity! To pay for it, go to the Stock Market and place a tax of 3% on all trades to fund the stipend. The market in 2016 did, according to the World Bank, over 42 trillion in trades and a 3% tax won’t break the bank. The payments should be set up so one gradually loses the stipend as they move up the economic ladder in a way that will encourage advancement, for example one would lose $100 of the stipend for every $10,000 in reported income so that when one is making $100,000 a year they lose the stipend entirely. A basic stipend would allow us to eliminate all those poverty programs conservatives always complain about. Currently we spend a trillion dollars on some 126 anti-poverty programs and their elimination would certainly offset the cost of the stipend. Imagine the country with no one in abject poverty. Imagine the numbers of kids now being able to go to college because they have the financial support to do so. The economic force of all that spending would drive the economy to new heights and would certainly close the income gap between the rich and poor that is hurting our economy and country. A basic stipend would free workers from starving or being held in economic servitude, making only enough to pay for enough food to be able to work another 40 hours. Business would have to bid for one’s labor instead of workers begging for a job! We can take back the dignity and value our labor should produce. We can boost the spending power of the poor and middle class and leave behind the failed and greedy policy of ‘trickle down’ economics which has damaged our economy and brought about the latest version of the Great Recession! Employers would benefit too. Not having to spend on unemployment or health insurance would save them money and allow them to pay better wages. Yep, we can do this if we only have the will. We can make this country live up to the promises articulated by President Roosevelt in his famous ‘Four Freedoms” speech, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear and the last which always seems to be forgotten, Freedom from want! We have the power and wealth to accomplish the last of these. The mechanics are in place. The tools are available to us. Let us make a better country and thereby a better world by finishing the work set out for us by President Roosevelt some 76 years ago. Democrats can win but not with the same old mid-center or center-left policies and platform. They must offer us an economy and a vision that really works for us all, brings us together and moves the Country and its people forward to a bright future that includes all our citizens!
