ARTICLE III - SABBATICAL LEAVE POLICY

A. The Board, in seeking to enhance the general welfare and competency of the professional staff, and to stimulate enrichment of the education environment, shall grant sabbatical leave to full-time professional employees, not to exceed one (1) in any one (1) academic year, in accordance with the following provisions.

      Eligible professional staff members shall have served a minimum of seven (7) consecutive years in the Clearview District immediately prior to the year of requested leave.

      Such leave shall be restricted to post baccalaureate study within the scope of the candidate's area of certification or teaching assignment, and shall be granted for a period of not less than one half ( ) academic year, five (5) months, nor more than one (1) full contractual year.

      Reimbursement shall be at the rate of one half ( ) of the salary for which the employee would be eligible during the term of leave, as determined by his/her appropriate placement on the prevailing salary schedule. The year of sabbatical leave shall be included for purposes of determination.

      Requests for sabbatical leave shall be submitted to the Superintendent by January 10th of the year prior to the requested sabbatical. Such a request shall include a detailed outline of the applicants proposed program for the sabbatical period. In the event the number of applications shall exceed the number of leaves which may be awarded in a given year, a recommendation shall be made, by the Superintendent, based on which proposals would seem to be potentially most beneficial to the educational program of the district. An applicant shall be notified of the disposition of this request within two (2) months following submission.

      Recipients shall agree to return to duties within the district for a period of not less than two (2) full contractual years following such leave. In default of such agreement, the recipient shall reimburse the Board the full amount if he/she returns for less than one (1) year, or one half ( ) the awarded amount if for more than one (1), but less than two (2) years.

      Recipients, following such leave, shall be assigned to a position and duties essentially comparable to those engaged in prior to such leave.

      Credit for salary guide purposes shall be granted for the sabbatical period.

      The recipient of a leave shall be eligible for subsequent leave after having completed seven (7) additional years following resumption of his/her duties.

ARTICLE IV - GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

A. Definitions:

1. Definition of Grievance

          A grievance is a claim by an employee or the Association based upon the interpretation, application or violation of this agreement, policies or administrative decisions affecting terms and conditions of employment.
      Non-Arbitral Grievance
          A "non-arbitral grievance" is an allegation by an employee covered by this Agreement, or the Association, that there has been a violation of Board policies, or that an Administrative decision violates the rights of the employee. The Board shall be the last step in this procedure on this type of grievance. These non-contract grievances may not be submitted to binding arbitration.
      Arbitral Grievance:
          An "arbitral grievance" is an allegation that there has been a violation of a provision of this Agreement. Such grievances may be submitted through the entire grievance procedure, up to and including binding arbitration, as the final step in that procedure. Only grievances that deal with the violations of the provisions of this Agreement may be submitted to binding arbitration.
4. Grievant:

A "grievant" is an employee who files the grievance or the Association.

5. Representative:

          A "representative" is an employee who files the grievance or the Association.
6. Day:
      "Day" means a day when district schools are open for business.
7. Party in Interest:
          "Party in Interest" is a person, agent, or agency with an interest in the grievance.
B. Procedures:

1. Grievances shall be processed promptly and expeditiously.

2. Formal grievances and appeals shall be filed in writing.

3. Communications and decisions concerning formal grievances shall be in writing.

4. A grievant shall be permitted a representative at all levels of the procedure.

5. There shall be no additional evidence submitted during the grievance process by either party once a grievance has been submitted to the Board.

6. Failure by the grievant to process a grievance within the specified time shall render the grievance null and void.

7. Failure by the Board to issue a decision within the specified time limits shall advance the grievance to the next level.

8. Grievances shall be adjudicated according to the terms of this procedure and the filing, pendency, or hearing of any grievance shall not impede the normal management of the work force or operations of any of the activities or functions of the Board.

9. Forms for grievance processing shall be developed between the parties, and shall be mutually agreed by the parties, and distributed on an as needed basis by either party.

10. The parties in interest will cooperate in investigating and providing pertinent information concerning a grievance being processed.

11. Notice of hearings shall be given to the grievant at least five (5) days in advance, and such hearing shall be held on mutually agreeable premises.

C. Processing:

1. Step One - A grievance, to be considered under this procedure, must be initiated by the grievant within fifteen (15) days from the time of its occurrence, or the time when the aggrieved became aware, or should have become aware, of the alleged grievance. Any employee covered by this Agreement who has a grievance shall discuss it first with his/her Principal, or immediate supervisor, in an attempt to resolve the matter informally at that level of supervision.

2. Step Two - If, as a result of the above discussion, the matter is not resolved satisfactorily within five (5) school days, the grievant shall set forth his/her grievance in writing to the Principal or Director of Pupil Personnel Services, as applicable, or in the case of non-teaching personnel, to the next level of supervision, on the form provided. The Principal, Director of Pupil Personnel, or appropriate supervisor, shall communicate his/her decision to the grievant in writing within ten (10) school days after receipt of the written grievance.

The written grievance must specify the following:

            The date of the occurrence giving rise to the grievance

            The date the grievance is filed.

            The nature of the grievance

            The specific provisions of the contract or specific board policies allegedly violated

            The remedy being sought

3. Step Three - The grievant, no later than five (5) days after receipt of the decision in the foregoing step, may appeal the decision to the Superintendent of Schools. The appeal to the Superintendent must be made on the form provided, reciting the matter as specified above, and his/her dissatisfaction with decisions previously rendered. The Superintendent shall attempt to resolve the matter as promptly as possible, but within a period not to exceed fifteen (15) days. The Superintendent shall communicate his/her decision in writing to the grievant, and all related papers and evidence shall be attached.

4. Step Four - If the grievance is not resolved to the grievant's satisfaction, he/she may request, not later than five (5) days after receipt of the Superintendent's decision, a review by the Board. The request shall be submitted in writing to the Superintendent of Schools, and all related papers and evidence shall be attached. The Board, or a committee thereof, shall review the grievance and shall, at the option of the Board, hold a hearing with the grievant and render a decision in writing within twenty (20) days of receipt of the grievance by the Board.

5. Step Five -

a. If a decision of the Board does not resolve the grievance to the satisfaction of the grievant, and the Association wishes review by a third party, the grievance may be submitted to binding arbitration, as long as the grievance concerns a matter that is an allegation that a provision of the contract has been violated. If arbitration is requested, the Association shall notify the Board of Education within ten (10) days of receipt of the Board's decision in Step Four. The notification to the Board of Education shall be submitted by certified mail to the Office of the Superintendent of Schools.

b. Grievances concerning (1) any matter for which a specified method of review is prescribed, either by law or in any regulation of the State Commissioner of Education, or any matter which, according to law, is either beyond the scope of the Board authority, or limited to action by the Board alone; (2) a complaint of a non-tenure teacher which arises by reason of his/her not being re-employed; (3) a complaint by any teacher occasioned by an appointment to or lack of appointment to, retention or lack of retention in these positions, in which tenure is either not possible or not required; (4) any matter not part of this Agreement; and (5) any Board policy shall not be deemed to be arbitrable.

D. Services of an Arbitrator:

The following procedures shall be used to secure the services of an arbitrator.

1. Once the Board of Education has received the notification within the time limits stated in C-5, Paragraph A above, the Association may request the Public Employment Relations Commission arbitration selection procedures be invoked. It will be the responsibility of the parties to follow those selection procedures in determining who shall serve as arbitrator in each instance.

2. The following rules will be binding on any arbitrator and the parties.

          a. The arbitrator must first rule on the arbitrability of the grievance, if so requested by either party.

b. The arbitrator shall have no power to add to, subtract from, or alter the language of this Agreement. He/She will have no power to make an award inconsistent with law, and he/she shall have no power to entertain grievances that do not constitute violations of this Agreement. The arbitrator shall rule only on the allegation that a provision of the Agreement has been violated.

c. The arbitrator's decisions shall be final and binding on all parties on matters regarding violations of the contract.
    d. The cost of the services of the arbitrator shall be shared equally by the parties in interest.

    E. End of the Year Grievances:

        If a grievance occurs at the end of the school year, and if an insufficient number of school days exist before the last day of school in which the grievance can be processed fully, the time limits may be reduced or extended by mutual agreement.



    ARTICLE V - TEACHER ASSIGNMENT

    The building principal shall cause to be mailed to each teacher a written notice of their class and/or subject assignments for the forthcoming year on or before August 1st, or as soon thereafter as is practicable. The teacher not advised of such assignments by August 1st shall instead be mailed an explanation of the reason for the delay, and be given a subsequent date when they might reasonably expect such notification of assignment. The purpose and intent of this Article is to make known to teachers their class and subject assignments as soon as factors of scheduling and staffing shall permit.


































    ARTICLE VI - EVALUATION PROCEDURE

    A. Teachers:

    1. Teachers shall be evaluated only by professional employees of the district who hold bonafide state certificates for supervision, and only in terms of those documents which have been placed in their files.

    2. Signed evaluations will be completed in duplicate, with one (1) copy transmitted to the teacher. One (1) of the copies shall be signed by the teacher and returned to the evaluator; the other will be retained by the teacher. Should the teacher wish to make comment about his/her evaluation in general, or about any part of his/her evaluation in particular, he/she may do so on the evaluation sheet he/she signs and returns. Additional sheets may be appended to the original evaluation, but each must be signed and dated by the person originating same.

    3. Teachers shall receive a copy of any written evaluation and/or other reports, with the exception of letters of recommendation, and be given an opportunity to note differences of opinion on such reports prior to their inclusion in their personal file. The building principal shall undertake a review of all files of each professional employee assigned to his/her building at least every three (3) years. Teachers wishing an interim review may initiate a request through the Association representative, or directly with the building principal. During such review, the principal shall remove from the file such data and/or reports which would seem to have become irrelevant. Within ten (10) days of the review, the teacher concerned will receive a list of the documents contained therein.

        Under this procedure, end-year summary evaluations will be presented, utilizing observation evaluation data previously included in the employee's file.
    B. Support Personnel:

    1. Evaluation of employee performance will be conducted by an appropriate supervisor or administrator on at least one (1) occasion during the contract year. An employee will receive a written evaluation sheet after completion of the necessary evaluation activities.

Any disagreements the employee has with the evaluation should be made known to the immediate supervisor during the conference.


        2. All conferences held in connection with this Article will be held in strict confidence, and not in the presence of other members of the bargaining unit, or other employees of the district.

    5. All employees will receive a copy of their written evaluation at least twenty-four (24) hours before a conference.

    6. Placement of employee's initials on an evaluation form signifies receipt, but not acceptance, of the contents of the form.

    7. An employee may attach a written comment to an evaluation form after the conference is concluded. Such response shall also be sent to the employee's supervisor.

    8. If an employee wishes to review the contents of his/her personal file, the employee must notify the Superintendent for an appointment at least seventy-two (72) hours before the file is to be reviewed. No file may be reviewed without an administrator present, and no material may be removed from the file.

        9. If the intent of the supervisor is to take disciplinary action based on the evaluation, the employee shall be entitled to a representative at the conference to review said evaluation.

    ARTICLE VII - STAFF VACANCIES AND PROMOTIONS

    A. The Board of Education subscribes to the belief that preference should be given to promotion of qualified staff personnel to appropriate vacancies as they occur. In consideration of its legal and moral responsibilities, however, the Board of Education, through the Superintendent, retains the right to assign and/or reassign personnel in accordance with the best interests of the educational program and the school district.

    B. To implement this policy, the Superintendent shall cause written notice to be posted, announcing all vacancies as they occur, on the bulletin board in each main office, and a copy forwarded to the President of the Association.

Actual beginning and ending times, as well as ending times for payment purposes, will be determined by the Transportation Coordinator.

      g. In the event that there exists a period of time of one (1) hour or less between high school, special education, and grammar school runs (AM or PM) in which the drivers are not "on the road", drivers will be compensated in quarter hour increments up to a maximum of thirty (30) minutes.

      h. Drivers assigned to all other runs not listed in Paragraph f. will be paid a minimum of one (1) hour for each of these runs. In the event that a run exceeds one (1) hour, drivers will be compensated in quarter hour increments to the next quarter hour.

      n. Overnight trips will not be chargeable as extra hours.

      o. In those instances when it is necessary to reduce the pay for one (1) of the above-described employees, due to day(s) not worked, the following steps will be taken:

      (1) If the hours are to be deducted from the employee's contracted pay, information will be provided to the payroll department, indicating the number of hours the employee did not work.

      (a) The total number of hours not worked will be multiplied by the employee's hourly rate (excluding longevity) to determine the amount to be reduced from the employee's contracted pay.

      (b) When reducing the pay for hourly employees, only the actual number of hours not worked will be considered.

      (2) If the hours are to be deducted from extra hours worked, the actual hours not worked will be reduced from the appropriate time sheet before being submitted to the payroll department. In this instance, the contracted pay will not be reduced.

      p. In those instances when an hourly employee leaves or enters the district after the start of the school year, the steps listed below will be followed to determine any adjustments to the contract. Leaving during the school year:

      (1) A calculation will be made to determine the total number of hours the employee has worked, from the beginning of the school year, until the day he/she leaves the district.

      (2) This number will be compared to the pay the employee has actually received up until the time he/she leaves the district.

      (3) If the total number of hours the employee has worked, multiplied by the employee's hourly wage, exceeds the amount actually paid to the employee, then an adjustment will be made, in the last pay, in which the difference owed to the employee will be added to the contracted pay.

      (4) If the total number of hours the employee has worked, multiplied by the employee's hourly wage, is less than the amount actually paid to the employee, then an adjustment will be made, in the last pay, in which the difference owed to the district will be deducted from the contracted pay. If the amount to be deducted is greater than the contracted pay for that period, this amount will be deducted from any extra pay owed, or will be reimbursed by the employee to the district.

      q. Bus Drivers will be paid seventy-five percent (75%) of full rate for stand-by time (stand-by time being defined as the time that exists between full rate driving time for co-curricular and athletic trips).

      (1) For trips involving stand-by time, drivers will be guaranteed a minimum of one (1) hour driving time each way. Any driving time over one (1) hour will be figured in one-quarter (1/4) hour increments.

      (2) Drivers will be guaranteed full rate for contracted hours.

      r. Any run which starts before 6:00 A.M. will be guaranteed a minimum of four (4) hours pay, plus maintenance.

      7. Instructional Aides:

          The regular work day shall not exceed seven (7) hours.
      8. Lavatory Aide:

        ARTICLE XVII - REPRESENTATION FEE

        A. PURPOSE OF FEE:

            If an employee does not become a member of the Association during any membership year (i.e. from September 1st to the following August 31st), which is covered in whole or in part by this Agreement, said employee will be required to pay a representation fee to the Association for that membership year. The purpose of this fee will be to offset the employee's per capita cost of services rendered by the Association as majority representative.

        B. AMOUNT OF FEE:

        1. Notification:
                Prior to the beginning of each membership year, the Association will notify the Board, in writing, of the amount of the regular membership dues, initiation fees, and assessments charged by the Association to its own members for that membership year. The representation fee to be paid by non-members will be determined by the Association, in accordance
        with the law.

        2. Legal Maximum:
                In order to adequately offset the per capita costs of services rendered by the Association as majority representative, the representation fee should be equal in amount to the regular membership dues, initiation fees, and assessments charged by the Association to its own members, and the
                representation fee may be set up to eighty-five percent (85%) of that amount as the maximum presently allowed by law. If the law is changed in this regard, the amount of the representation fee automatically will be increased to the maximum allowed, said increase to become effective as of the beginning of the Association membership year immediately following the effective date of the change.
            Indemnification:
                The association shall indemnify and hold the Board harmless against any and all claims, demands, suits and other forms of liability, including liability for reasonable counsel fees and other legal costs and expenses, that may arise out of, or by reason of, any action taken or not taken by the Board in conformance with this provision.





        C. DEDUCTION AND TRANSMISSION OF FEE:

        1. Notification:
                Once during each membership year, covered in whole or in part by this Agreement, the Association will submit to the Board a list of those employees who have not become members of the Association for the then current membership year. The Board will deduct from the salaries of such employees, in accordance with Paragraph 2. below, the full amount of the representation fee, and promptly will transmit the amount so deducted to the Association.
        2. Payroll Deduction Schedule:
                The Board will deduct the representation fee in equal installments, as nearly as possible, from the pay checks paid to each employee on the aforesaid list during the remainder of the membership year in question. The deduction will begin with the first pay check paid:

        a. ten (10) days after receipt of the aforesaid list by the Board, or

        b. thirty (30) days after the employee begins his/her employment in a bargaining unit position, unless the employee previously served in a bargaining unit position, and continued in the employee of the Board in a non-bargaining unit position, or was on layoff, in which event, the deductions will begin with the first pay check paid ten (10) days after the resumption of the employee's employment in a bargaining unit position, whichever is later.

        3. Termination of Employment:

                If an employee, who is required to pay a representation fee, terminates his/her employment with the Board before the Association has received the full amount of the representation fee, to which it is entitled under this Article, the Board will deduct the unpaid portion of the fee from the
                last pay check paid to said employee during the membership year in question.

        4. Mechanics:
                Except as otherwise provided in this Article, the mechanics of the deduction of representation fees, and the transmission of such fees to the Association, will, as nearly as possible, be the same as those used for the deduction and transmission of regular membership dues to the Association.

        5. Changes:
                The Association will notify the Board, in writing, of any changes in the list provided for in Paragraph 1. above, and/or the amount of the representation fee, and such changes will be reflected in any deduction made more than ten (10) days after the Board receives said notice.

        6. New Employees:
                On or about the last day of each month, beginning with the month this Agreement becomes effective, the Board will submit to the Association a list of all employees who began their employment in a bargaining unit position during the preceding thirty (30) day period. The list will include names, job title, and dates of employment for all such employees.
