URGENT - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) specifies that only permanent day school teachers will have an unpaid day, December 20, 2013. Permanent day school teachers will not be expected to report to work on December 20, 2013.
However, Long Term Occasional Teachers (LTOs) scheduled to work on December 20, 2013 will attend their home school to participate in professional activities according to a district school board agenda.
Part time permanent teachers with a long term occasional assignment and part time LTOs must attend for part of the day that is equivalent to the number of sections for which they are employed as LTOs. For example, a teacher with 1 section of long term occasional work would attend for one third of the day.
It is our understanding that the school board will be providing an agenda of activities that will allow part time LTOs to attend a session of their own choice. The Federation strongly suggests that part time LTOs communicate in writing to their administrator the part of the day that they will attend.
If you do not wish to report to work on December 20, 2013, and subsequently not be paid, long term occasional teachers must apply for a Voluntary Unpaid Leave of Absence Program (VLAP) day.
Questions or concerns regarding this notice should be directed to the District Office.
