C. Duty Assignment
The District and the CVEA share a common objective of enhancing the professional status of teachers through improving the availability of teachers to students/parents, and increasing planning time within the professional day. Toward achieving this objective, it is desirable to minimize duty assignments.
The vast majority of school sites employ duty assignment methods that have proved successful over the years; sites will continue to employ such methods. If a problem occurs at a particular site, the following procedure will be followed:
1. A faculty Duty and After School/Evening Activity Committee shall be established, composed of three teachers (a CVEA representative and two other teachers selected by the faculty).
2. The principal shall develop a statement regarding the need for duty assignments and after school/evening activities. After development of this statement, the principal will draft a tentative plan including place/time and frequency, and submit it to the committee for review.
3. A committee shall share the Need Statement and tentative plan with the staff, and conduct discussion for purposes of developing input for the principal regarding agreement, concerns, disagreement, and/or an optional plan.
4. A committee shall communicate the position of staff to the principal and serve as a liaison recognizing that the objective is to reach consensus regarding a Duty and After School/Evening Activity Schedule. To achieve consensus, the committee may be required to consult a number of times with the staff and principal regarding a particular issue.
5. After conducting this process to minimize duties, the principal will establish the Duty and After School/Evening Activity Schedule for the year. Should there be staff recommendations which are not included in the plan, the principal shall provide rationale to staff regarding why such recommendations were not incorporated.
