      Whenever a teacher’s absence due to personal illness exceeds the annual sick leave and accumulated sick leave days, the Board of Education may, in its discretion, permit additional days for an extended illness on a case by case basis during which time the cost of employing a substitute will be deducted from the teacher’s salary in accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:3-6. In the case of employees whose term of employment is, for any reason, less than a full school year, the sick leave entitlement may be granted at the discretion of the Board of Education which shall be calculated at one (1) day per month or major fraction of a month of actual employment.

      Additional leaves of absence without pay may be granted at the discretion of the Board of Education. Sick leave referred to herein will be defined in applicable New Jersey Statutes now or hereafter in effect.

Employees would become eligible for this benefit only upon reaching retirement age and conditions as established by the New Jersey Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund. In the event of the death of an eligible employee before retirement, the payment would be made to the employee’s estate or specified beneficiary. Staff members who retire by June 30, 2011, will receive an additional twenty (20) days added to their cap for reimbursement at the rate of $45.00 per day.

      (5) An allowance of up to three (3) days leave with prior approval by the Superintendent shall be granted for reasons of a personal nature. These days are for personal business which cannot be handled outside of school hours. If the reason for personal business is considered by the teacher to be of such a confidential nature the reason for requesting the personal business day may be submitted directly to the Superintendent for consideration. Any unused personal days shall be converted to sick days.

      (6) Educational leave may be granted with prior approval of the Superintendent for:

      (a) Attendance at conference for professional improvement.

      (b) Representing the Haddon Heights School District and/or teaching profession at civic, public or educational meetings.

      (c) Visiting other school for self-improvement.

      For the protection of the employee and for proper payroll accounting and audit, every absence must be accounted for in writing and reported to the Superintendent on the proper form. Absences not covered by any of the above provisions will cause salary reductions at the rate of 1/200th for each day’s absence.

      C. Maternity Leave/Parental Leave

      (1) A pregnant teacher may apply for a leave of absence. Upon request, such leave shall be granted prior to the anticipated date of birth and may continue for a reasonable period of time to a specific date following birth as set forth herein or in accordance with Board Policy. A pregnant teacher shall be entitled to use sick leave pursuant to the provisions of the negotiated agreement and in accordance with the Family Leave Act for pregnancy related illness or disability. Any leave of absence granted hereunder shall be without pay or benefits unless such pay and/or benefits are specifically provided in this Article or the Family Leave Act for pregnancy related illness or disability.

      Maternity leave shall be subject to the following conditions:

      (a) A teacher shall notify the Superintendent of her pregnancy as soon as it is medically confirmed but not later than 120 days before the anticipated date of birth.

      (b) A request for maternity leave shall include a statement from the physician confirming the pregnancy and anticipated date of birth. The request shall also state whether the leave requested is without pay and/or benefits; sick leave for maternity related disability or illness; or pursuant to the Family Leave Act.

      (c) A teacher is entitled to use sick leave for pregnancy related illness or disability for the time period which shall not commence prior to twenty (20) days before the anticipated date of birth and shall terminate no later than twenty (20) days subsequent to the date of birth. If a teacher has insufficient sick leave to cover the period prior to twenty (20) days before through twenty (20) days subsequent to the date of birth, then the leave shall be without pay or benefits unless contrary to the Family Leave Act.

      (d) Any teacher seeking a leave of absence hereunder shall apply to the Board for said leave to begin at any time prior to birth. At the time of application, the employee shall specify in writing the date on which she wishes to commence leave and the date on which she wishes to return to work after birth. The Board will require a certificate from a physician in support of the requested leave dates. The physician’s certificate is subject to agreement by the Board’s physician.

      Where medical opinion is supportive of leave dates requested, such leave will be granted except that the Board may change the requested dates upon finding that the granting of a leave for those dates would interfere with educational continuity and provided that such date change by the Board is not medically contra-indicated.

      The commencement or termination of such dates may be further extended or reduced for medical reasons upon application to the Board. The Board will require a certificate from a physician in support of this request. The physician’s certificate is subject to agreement by the Board’s physician. Such extension or reduction will be granted for a reasonable period of time except that the Board may change the requested date upon finding that such extension or reduction would interfere with educational continuity and that such date change by the Board is not medically contra-indicated.

      (e) Unless a different date is specifically permitted under this Article or the Family Leave Act, the termination date of a leave of absence hereunder shall be September 1st or the beginning of the second semester only. Notification of intent to return from Maternity Leave, or resignation, shall be made in writing to the Superintendent of Schools sixty (60) days prior to the scheduled termination of the leave of absence. Teachers returning to employment in September shall give notice to the Superintendent no later than April 15th prior thereto. Failure to notify of intent to return as specified herein will be deemed a waiver by the teacher of her right to return to duty.

      (f) After the fifth month of pregnancy, the teacher shall furnish the Superintendent, every thirty (30) days, with a certificate from her attending obstetrician or gynecologist stating that she is physically capable of performing the duties of her position.

      (g) A statement from a physician certifying that the teacher is physically able to return to duty shall be furnished to the Board before a teacher is permitted to return from maternity leave.

      (h) Notwithstanding the language herein, a request for a finding by a principal or other administrator that the teacher’s pregnancy interferes with the performance of her duties shall be documented in writing and referred through the Superintendent to the Board of Education. The Board may require the teacher to submit to a medical examination by a physician selected by the Board. The Board shall, upon recommendation of the Superintendent and within its discretion, make a determination as to the ability of the teacher to perform her duties.

      (i) Notwithstanding the language herein, a request for a finding by a principal or other administrator that the teacher’s condition after return from childbirth or pregnancy related illness or disability interferes with the performance of her duties shall be documented in writing and referred through the Superintendent to the Board of Education. The Board may require the teacher to submit to a medical examination by a physician selected by the Board. The Board shall, upon recommendation of the Superintendent and within its discretion, make a determination as to the ability of the teacher to perform her duties.

      (j) Any leave of absence granted a non-tenured (probationary) teacher hereunder may not be extended beyond the end of the contract school year in which the leave is obtained.

      (k) Except as provided herein, no teacher shall be barred from returning to duty after the birth of her child solely on the grounds that there has not been a time lapse between the birth and her desired date of return.

      (l) Time spent on maternity leave shall not count towards fulfillment of time requirements for acquiring tenure, nor shall it count toward placement on the salary guide or for seniority or leave accrual of any sort.

      (m) All benefits to which teachers were entitled at the time the leave hereunder commenced and which are still available to teachers at time of return, including unused accumulated sick leave and credits toward sabbatical eligibility, shall be restored to teachers returning from leave hereunder; and they shall be assured their original position or similar position within their area of interests, abilities and training following completion of leave hereunder, provided they notify the Superintendent of Schools of their interest to return prior to February 1st.

      (2) A tenured teacher may request a parental leave of absence. Any leave of absence granted hereunder shall be without pay and/or benefits unless such pay and/or benefits are specifically provided in this Article or the Family Leave Act. Parental leave of absence is limited to the following circumstances and conditions:

      (a) Any tenured teacher who adopts an infant may receive a leave without pay and/or benefits for up to one year for the purpose of caring for the infant. The leave shall commence upon receiving de facto custody of the infant or sooner if necessary to fulfill the requirements for the adoption.

      (b) Any tenured teacher may receive a leave without pay and/or benefits for up to one year for a serious, chronic illness of a child, spouse or dependent parent or dependent sibling.

      (c) Any tenured teacher who becomes a biological parent may receive a leave without pay and/or benefits of up to one year for the purpose of caring for the infant.

      (d) The Board reserves the right to set the term of the leave requested hereunder within reasonable limits in the best interest of the schools.

      (e) A teacher shall notify the Superintendent of his/her request for leave hereunder no later than 120 days before the anticipated start of such leave.

      (f) Time spent on parental leave shall not count towards fulfillment of time requirements for acquiring tenure, nor shall it count toward placement on the salary guide or for seniority or leave accrual of any sort.

      (g) All benefits to which teachers are entitled at the time the leave hereunder commenced and which are still available to teachers at time of return, including unused accumulated sick leave and credits toward sabbatical eligibility, shall be restored to teachers returning from leave hereunder; and they shall be assured their original position or similar position within their area of interests, abilities and training following completion of leave hereunder, provided they notify the Superintendent of Schools of their interest to return prior to February 1st.

      D. Extended Leaves of Absence. Occasionally, it is necessary for teachers to be absent for long periods of time, generally as a result of emergencies or other circumstances beyond the control of the teacher. Extended leaves may be granted for the following circumstances and with the following conditions:

      (1) Leave for military reasons, up to ninety (90) days will be granted by the Board as ordered by action of the Adjutant’s General’s Office to any regular employee who is a duly qualified member of the reserved components of the armed forces and who is called into temporary active duty, provided such obligation cannot be fulfilled on days when work is not scheduled. During leave for military reasons, employees shall receive their regular salary in addition to any salary that they receive from the state or federal government. Tenure, pension, and other employment rights of employees who shall enter active military service shall be protected as set forth in Title 18A:6-33 et seq. and the Public Laws of 1944 Chapter 226 as amended.

      (2) Other leaves of absence, without pay and benefits, may be granted by the Board which, in its opinion, are for good reasons.

      (3) Any leave of absence granted a non-tenured (probationary) teacher hereunder may not be extended beyond the end of the contract school year in which the leave is obtained.

      (4) All benefits to which teachers were entitled at the time the leave hereunder commenced and which are still available to teachers at time of return, including unused accumulated sick leave and credits toward sabbatical eligibility, shall be restored to teachers returning from leave hereunder; and they shall be assured their original position or similar position within their area of interests, abilities and training following completion of leave hereunder, provided they notify the Superintendent of Schools of their interest to return prior to February 1st.

      E. Sabbatical Leave of Absence. Upon recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools, an educational sabbatical leave may be granted to a certified member of the staff, within his/her field of study, by the Board subject to the following conditions:
      (1) Requests for sabbatical leave must be received by the Superintendent, in writing, in such form as may be required by the Superintendent. Such requests must be in the hands of the Superintendent no later than October 31st of the fiscal year preceding the school year for which the sabbatical leave is requested.

      (2) The applicant must have completed at least eight (8) consecutive full school years of service in the school district of Haddon Heights.

      (3) Payment for sabbatical leave is granted on the following basis:

      (a) One-half () of the annual contracted salary will be granted for a full year’s leave for study. (Two (2) semesters of schooling)

      (4) The beneficiary will agree to return to the school district of Haddon Heights for four (4) full years of employment on the appropriate salary level following the leave except in the event of the death or serious illness of the beneficiary. If the beneficiary of the sabbatical leave does not fulfill the return agreement to the school district of Haddon Heights, the beneficiary will be obligated to reimburse the Board of Education for the salary received during the sabbatical leave although service credit will be granted according to the following plan:




      % of salary to be reimbursed to the Board of Education:
      Leaving before
      2 full years of service 100% of salary received
      3 full years of service 40% of salary received
      4 full years of service 20% of salary received

      (5) To the extent feasible, with due regard for the interests of the school program, teachers returning to work after a sabbatical leave shall be offered the same or a similar position.

      (6) A sabbatical year will be considered as a year of teaching experience in determining the individual’s salary.

      (7) Upon the recommendation of the Superintendent, the Board will grant no more than one (1) sabbatical leave per year.

      ARTICLE XVIII
      GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

      A. Definition. A “grievance” shall mean a complaint by an employee or group of employees that there has been to him/her or them, or to the Association an inequitable, improper, or unjust application, interpretation, or violation of Board policy, this Agreement, or an administrative decision.

      B. Purpose. The purpose of this procedure is to provide a means for those employees covered by this contract to process complaints. It is agreed that these proceedings will be kept confidential.

      C. Procedure:

      (1) The number of days indicated at each level of the grievance procedure shall be considered as a maximum and the parties shall attempt to expedite the process wherever possible.

      (2) In the event 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, the time limits set forth herein may be reduced by mutual agreement of the parties.

      (3) Failure at any step of this procedure to communicate the decision on a grievance within the specified time limits shall permit the grievant to proceed to the next step. Failure at any step of this procedure to appeal a grievance to the next step within the specified time limits shall be deemed to be waiver of further appeal of the decision.

      (4) It is understood that an employee grievant shall, during and notwithstanding the pendency of any grievance, continue to observe all assignments and applicable regulations of the Board until such grievance and any effect thereof shall have been duly determined.

      (5) A grievance to be considered under the procedure must be initiated by the grievant (the employee or the Association) within fifteen (15) working days from the time when the grievant knew of its occurrence.

      (6) The grievant shall initiate the grievance by first discussing it with the principal (or immediate superior or coordinator, if applicable) in an attempt to resolve the matter, informally, at that level.

      (7) If, as a result of the discussion, the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of the employee within fifteen (15) working days, the teacher and his/her representative shall set forth the grievance in writing, within fifteen (15) working days, to the principal, specifying:

      (a) The nature of the grievance.

      (b) The nature and extent of the injury or loss.

      (c) The results of previous discussions.

      (d) The dissatisfaction with decisions previously rendered.

      The principal shall communicate the decision to the employee in writing within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the written grievance.

      (8) The employee grievant, no later than fifteen (15) working days after receipt of the decision of the principal or other immediate supervisor, may appeal the decision to the Superintendent of Schools. A copy of the written grievance and written decision shall be properly referred to the Association at each step of the grievance procedure.

      (9) The Superintendent shall attempt to resolve the matter as quickly as possible, but within a period not to exceed fifteen (15) working days from the receipt of the appeal. The Superintendent shall communicate the decision in writing to the employee grievant, to the Association, and to the principal or other immediate supervisor.

      (10) If the grievance is not resolved to the grievant’s satisfaction, the grievant, not later than fifteen (15) working days after receipt of the Superintendent’s decision, may request a review by the Board. The request shall be submitted in writing through the Superintendent who shall attach all related papers and forward the request to the Board. The Board, or a committee thereof, shall review the grievance. Except for:

      (a) Any matter for which a specific method of review is prescribed and expressly set forth by law or any rule or regulation of the State Commissioner of Education; or

      (b) A complaint of a non-tenured teacher which arises by reason of not being reemployed; or

      (c) A complaint by any certificated personnel occasioned by appointment to, retention in or lack of retention in, any position for which tenure either is not possible or not required.

      The Board, at its option, shall hold a hearing with the employee grievant and render a decision in writing and forward copies thereof to the grievant and to the Association fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the appeal, or if a hearing is granted, within fifteen (15) working days of the date of the hearing. The referred to hearing, if granted, shall be held within a reasonably expeditious time after receipt of the appeal notice.

      (11) If the decision of the Board does not resolve the grievance to the satisfaction of the employee grievant and grievant wishes review by a third party, grievant shall so notify the Association within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the Board’s decision. If the Association determines that the matter should be reviewed further, it shall so advise the Board through the Superintendent within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the Board’s decision. The Board and Association shall attempt to select a mutually acceptable arbitrator.

      (12) The following procedure will be used to secure the services of an arbitrator:

      (a) A joint request by the Association and the Board will be made to the American Arbitration Association to submit a roster of persons qualified to function as arbitrators in the dispute in question.

      (b) If the parties are unable to determine a mutually satisfactory arbitrator from the submitted list, they will request the American Arbitration Association to submit a second roster of names.

      (c) If the parties are unable to determine within fifteen (15) working days of the initial request for arbitration, a mutually satisfactory arbitrator from the second submitted list, the American Arbitration Association may be requested by either party to designate an arbitrator.

      (d) The arbitrator shall be limited to the issue submitted and shall consider nothing else. The arbitrator can add nothing to nor subtract anything from the Agreement between the parties or any policy of the Board of Education. The recommendations of the arbitrator shall be advisory.

      (13) If, in the judgment of the Association, a grievance affects a group or class of teachers, the Association may submit such grievance in writing to the Superintendent directly, in accordance with the procedure set forth above and the processing of such grievance shall commence at said level. The Association may process such grievance through all levels of the grievance procedure.

      D. Costs. The costs for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem expenses, if any, and actual and necessary travel, subsistence expenses, and the cost of the hearing room shall be borne equally by the Board and the Association. Any other expenses incurred shall be paid by the party incurring the expense. In the event an arbitrator’s fee is incurred due to a cancellation of an arbitration hearing, the party who canceled the hearing shall be liable for the full fee for that canceled hearing.

      (1) Any aggrieved person may be represented at all stages of the grievance procedure by themselves, or, at his/her option, by the Association, by a representative selected or approved by the Association.

      (2) When a teacher is not represented by the Association in the processing of a grievance, the Association shall at the time of submission of the grievance to the Superintendent or any later level, be notified by the Superintendent that the grievance is in process, have the right to be present and present its position in writing at all hearing sessions held concerning the grievance and shall receive a copy of all decisions rendered.

      (3) The Board and Association agree that no reprisals of any kind shall be taken by the Board or the Association or their agents against any participant in the grievance procedure by reason of such participation.

      (6) A representative of the Association shall have the right to be present and speak at all grievance hearings at levels 3 and 4 of the grievance.
