We are currently working on finalizing the handy pocket calendars that will be mailed to you in September. Please remember to refer to these as we go to great lengths to include accurate information and contacts that are very pertinent to the OT.
Regarding LTOs, the second round of LTO assignments will be posted on First Class under the Occasional Teachers’ Folder on August 15th.
Those LTOs currently in a continuous assignment which extends beyond 3 months will be paid an additional $8.00 per day worked (pro-rated for part-time) in addition to regular salary, in lieu of benefits, commencing the fourth working month. This amount includes vacation pay and statutory holiday pay. This is the second installment for full year LTOs and it will come with your July 15th pay.
As well, if you expressed an Interest in an Elementary Teaching Position and received an evaluation this year, submit your receipt for single board Apply to Education subscription to Sandi Douglas at the Board for reimbursement per Article 17.03 of the Agreement.
This will be our last Wednesday Blog posting for the school year. We thank you for reading and hope you found it beneficial. We look forward to resuming on Wednesdays in September.
Have a safe, enjoyable and relaxing summer!
