          Exercising this option shall not diminish the right of the Association to take up the matter in arbitration as provide below.

In the event that a grievance is filed at such time that it cannot be processed through all the steps in this grievance procedure by the end of the school year, and if left unresolved until the beginning of the following school year could result in harm to a party in interest, the time limits set forth herein shall be reduced so that the grievance procedure may be exhaused prior to the end of the school year or as soon thereafter as practicable.
