LTOs and June 28th PD Day
Our office has received many calls about whether or not LTOs are to attend school on June 28th.
If your assignment has a posted end date of June 28, you are expected to report to the school where you will work and be paid according to your FTE.
For LTOs with unposted end dates, if no permanent teacher is coming to replace you that day, you are expected to report to the school where you will work and be paid according to your FTE.
Daily OTs have access to 5 half-days of paid PD. At this late date, the only options are online modules listed in the Employee Portal in the Conference Registration section. These can be done anytime up to the end of day on June 28th, and count for all purposes as a day of work, including for credit for the 10 days necessary to remain on the OT Roster, credit for Teachers' pension, experience credit for grid placement, Employment Insurance etc.
NB. For purposes of Employment Insurance, the Board reports a day if work as 8 hours.
Please note this will be the last BLOG for this school year.
