CLASSROOM RELEASE TIME

PR-2-4

PROCEDURAL DOCUMENT DRAFT

Effective date: 06-April-17

 

Rationale

That teachers will be entitled to 10 hours release time per term (of ten weeks) equivalent to one hour per week release in order to address their workload for full time employees or pro-rata if not full time. 

Implementation

For ease of staffing, Plateau School will accumulate release time so that each teacher is entitled to 2 days per term. 

If a teacher transfers schools during the term, any unused release time will be used by the teacher taking the position. 

At Plateau School, classroom release time will be used for planning, reporting, professional development, peer observation, assessment and other use agreed to from time to time between the teacher and principal. 

If a teacher is sick on the days they were entitled to CRT, and it is possible to reschedule days, this will be done.  

Beginning Teachers

Support time for beginning teachers, who are entitled to 0.1 or 0.2 FTTE beginning teacher time allowance, is provided in addition to the classroom release time entitlements.
