E Pluribus Unum - Out of Many, One

This agreement will enter into force on July 1, 2019 and will apply until June 30, 2021. (1) A permanent worker may apply in writing for leave from a full-time job to accept a non-permanent part-time job in the district. Such an application is no more than one year old and is generally submitted until April 1. This leave plan, if agreed by the worker and the district, is reduced to the letter indicating the percentage of the working time used by the worker and signed by the worker and the district. Any changes to this agreement are agreed in writing and signed by the worker and the district. The needs of our students and the needs of the changing world require that we stand together and continually improve the quality of education for all students. The standards of the past may not go far in the future of our students. That is why we must always try to set new standards and ensure justice for excellence for all. To improve quality and ensure fairness, we must constantly review and change our expectations, roles, responsibilities and practices.

In other words, we believe that staff and administrators should share responsibility for effective school management as part of education reform and alternative programs. Together, they will meet student expectations, plan how best to meet these expectations, and evaluate the results of their efforts. The results of these evaluations are shared and used to modify and improve the program or programs. For this reason, in the development and implementation of new programs, both parties recognize that staff must have the flexibility to explore unique arrangements. Both parties agree that staff in the new programs will be free to develop program parameters during the pilot year, assuming that each attempt will be made to work within the restrictions of the collective agreement. However, both sides also agree that staff should be free to explore areas that may conflict with the treaty. It was also agreed that contractual articles, including salary, ancillary benefits, complaints, evaluation, management rights, teacher rights and dismissal procedures, could not be cancelled unless sufficient grounds were given to induce the parties to do something else. Only programs approved by both parties are covered by the guidelines of this memorandum. In order to facilitate the resolution of potential contractual disputes, the superintendent or delegate and the association`s president will act as an “ombudsman committee” to advise staff on the impact of their planning on the contract or on established practice.

Program plans are reviewed by the Ombudsman Committee to determine the impact on collective bargaining and a response will be provided to the Programs and Education Department in the event of concerns. Before implementation, both parties will approve in writing all conditions that are inconsistent with the collective agreement.
