Scan Scam Update

I called my UFT representative yesterday.  I emphasized that if the DOE thought I had been absent all year without notifying them, then they could terminate me.  He told me he would look into it and called me back soon thereafter.  He said that the matter was resolved.  However, I still can't get my attendance data from Cybershift.  None of the people at my site can either.  The regular workers can get into Cybershift but we can't.  Teachers at other sites can get into Cybershift, but we can't.  Unless I'm mistaken we have the contractual right to view our records whenever we want.  Well, I want to view and get a copy of my attendance records,  but they are Lost In DOE Cyberspace.

My advice to other reassigned teachers is to maintain your own copies of your attendance records and do not rely on your site supervisor or the DOE to do so for you.

No, school based teacher's are on CyberShift, only administrative staff. If you would like to receive a copy of the timesheets, just request them from Please send the email from a DOE email account as we need to indentify you as a DOE employee.

Thank you very much for the information. It will give me peace of mind to have a copy of my daily attendance for the month of September. I would also like to be able to log on to cybershift in order to monitor my attendance records.

Thank you again. One less thing to worry about.
