A talk for teachers on homeowner perks

The City has a tough time retaining teachers so the district has been trying to entice them to stay with heftier paychecks for sticking around and homeowner perks such as down payment assistance for up to $150,000.

Along the lines of that broad effort the San Francisco Urban Housing Corporation is holding a workshop about homeownership Oct. 17 in collaboration with the Mayor's Office of Housing Homeownership program. The workshop is specifically for teachers.

The teacher’s union has reported that several teachers did not get the thousands they were entitled to in Sept. 30 paychecks for teaching hard-to-fill positions such as math and special education. However, the kinks with the new reimbursement policy will be ironed out, according to the union.

The union recently sent out a letter to the teachers regarding the checks and the workshop, which will be held at Everett Middle School in the Mission District.
