In consideration of the following mutual covenants, it is hereby agreed by and between the Board of Education of the Borough of Maywood, New Jersey, (hereinafter referred to as the “Board”), and the Maywood Education Association, Inc., (hereinafter referred to as the “Association”), as follows:

ARTICLE 1 - RECOGNITION

WHEREAS, the Association has represented to the Board that a majority of the employees of the Maywood School District in the categories listed below have designated the Association as its representative for the purpose of collective negotiations with the Board.

      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 303 and Chapter 123, Public Laws of 1968 and 1974, of the State of New Jersey, the Board does hereby recognize the Association as the exclusive representative with which said Board will negotiate concerning the terms and conditions of employment of:

      Non-Supervisory Professional Personnel

      Secretaries

      Kitchen Personnel

      Effective July, 1986, the secretary to the Superintendent of Schools and the secretary to the School Business Administrator/Board Secretary shall be excluded from the bargaining unit as above defined.

Unless otherwise indicated, the term employee when used in this agreement shall refer to all employees represented by the Association.

The term full-time employee is defined as a person employed for twenty-eight (28) or more hours per week.

The parties agree that the Board reserves all rights, authority and responsibilities, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, not otherwise affected by the provisions of this Agreement.

1. Effective July 1, 1986, if an employee in those categories covered by this Agreement, does not become a member of the Association during any membership year, July 1 to the following June 30, covered by this Agreement, said employee shall be required to pay a representation fee to the Association for that membership year. Deductions for representation fee payers beginning employment at times other than the start of the school year or termination of employment at times other than the end of the school year, shall be made in a manner identical to the deductions for Union Dues in accordance with the law.

      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 not exceed 85% of that amount.

      Once during each membership year, the Association will submit to the Board a list of those employees who have not become members of the Association for that membership year. The Board will deduct from the salaries of such employees (see Paragraph 4 below), the amount of the representation fee and will promptly transmit the amount so deducted to the Association.

      The Board will deduct the representation fee in equal installments, as nearly as possible, from the paychecks paid each employee on the aforementioned list. The deductions will begin with the first paycheck paid.

          Twenty (20) days after receipt of the aforementioned list by the Board; or

          Thirty (30) days after the employee begins or resumes his/her employment; i.e., effective date individual is placed on payroll in a bargaining unit position.

      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 if a member of the Bargaining Unit as defined in Article 1 challenges any assessment, in accordance with law.
ARTICLE 2 - NEGOTIATION PROCEDURE

The Board and the Association agree to enter into collective negotiation over a successor Agreement in accordance with Chapter 303 and Chapter 123, New Jersey Public Laws of 1968 and 1974 (N.J.S.A. 34:13A-5.1 et. seq.), in good faith effort to reach agreement on all matters concerning the terms and conditions of Association members’ employment.

Requests for negotiation meetings from the Association must be directed to the Superintendent of Schools in writing. Requests for such meetings from the Board must be made in writing to the President of the Association via the Superintendent. A mutually convenient meeting date shall be set within fifteen (15) school days of receipt of the request.

This Agreement, subject to N.J.S.A. 34:13A-5.1 et. seq., incorporates the entire understanding of the parties.

This Agreement shall not be modified in whole or in part by the parties except by an instrument in writing duly executed by both parties.

ARTICLE 3 - GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

Definition

      A grievance is a claim by an employee or by the Association based upon the interpretation, application, or violation of this Agreement, policies, administrative decisions affecting the terms and conditions of employment of an employee or a group of employees.

      A grievance to be considered under this procedure must be initiated in writing within thirty-five (35) calendar days from the time when the grievant knew or should have known of its occurrence.

Procedure
      (a) 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 a waiver of further appeal of the decision.
          It is understood that any employee grievant shall, during and notwithstanding the pendency of any grievance, continue to observe all assignments and applicable rules and regulations of the Board until such grievance and any effect thereof shall have been duly determined.
      The grievant shall file the grievance in writing with the Principal, specifying the nature of the grievance. Within ten (10) calendar days of the filing of the grievance, the Principal will meet with the grievant in an attempt to resolve the matter. Within five (5) school days of the meeting, the Principal shall issue his decision.

      The grievant, no later than eight (8) calendar days after receipt of the written decision of his Principal or other immediate superior, may appeal the decision to the Superintendent. The appeal to the Superintendent must be made in writing specifying:

          All dates (date of occurrence, date of filing, date of prior decision, and date of appeal).

          A description of the incident or alleged violation giving rise to the grievance.

          Identification of the specific provision(s) of the agreement, specific board policy, and/or specific administrative decision involved.

          The specific remedy sought by the grievant(s).

          The outcome from the prior level in the procedure, if any.

          The Superintendent shall attempt to resolve the matter as quickly as possible, but within a period not to exceed ten (10) calendar days from the receipt of the appeal. The Superintendent shall communicate his decision in writing to the employee grievant, to the Association, and to the Principal.

      If the grievance is not resolved to the grievant’s satisfaction, he/she, no later than eight (8) calendar 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 and shall, at its option, hold a hearing with the employee grievant and an Association representative and render a decision in writing and forward copies thereof to the grievant and to the Association within twenty (20) calendar days of receipt of the grievance, or after the close of the hearing, if granted. The Board shall reserve the right to have their attorney present at any hearing.

      If the decision of the Board does not resolve the grievance to the satisfaction of the employee grievant and he wishes review by a third party, and if the Association determines that the matter should be reviewed further, the grievant shall, by written notice, so advise the Board through the Superintendent within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the Board’s decision.

          However, the Board’s decision shall be final and binding on the grievances concerning:

          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 Commission of Education; or

          A complaint of non-tenure teacher which arises by reason of his not being re-employed; or

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

      (a) The parties agree to follow the rules and regulations of the Public Employment Relations Commission, to secure the services of an arbitrator. Should the Association file for arbitration, the Association shall simultaneously notify the Board of its action.
          The arbitrator shall limit himself to the issues submitted to him and shall consider nothing else. He can add nothing or subtract anything from the agreement between the parties or any policy of the Board. The recommendations of the arbitrator shall be advisory.

          Rights of Employees to Representation:

              Any aggrieved person, at his own or at the Association’s expense, may be represented at all stages of the grievance procedure by himself, or at his option, by the Association or by a representative selected or approved by the Association.

              If an employee was 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 existence and the Association shall have the right to be present at all hearings.

      Since it is important that grievances be processed as rapidly as possible, the number of days indicated at each level should be considered as a maximum, and every effort should be made to expedite the process.

      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, or if it is filed after the end of the school year, then the time limits shall be established by counting weekdays, except recognized legal holidays, following the end of the school year’s school days.

      The parties shall mutually develop a grievance form pursuant to this Article to commence on July 1, 2001.

ARTICLE 4 – ASSOCIATION MEMBERS’ RIGHTS AND PERSONAL AND ACADEMIC FREEDOM

Pursuant to Chapter 303 and Chapter 123, New Jersey Public Laws of 1968 and 1974, the Board hereby agrees that every employee of the Board shall have the right freely to organize, join, and support the Association or any other employee organization, or to refrain from any such activity, for the purpose of engaging in collective negotiation and other concerted legal activities for mutual aid and protection.

ARTICLE 5 – PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT

The Board agrees to provide the following reimbursement program for teachers.

      Teachers who take graduate credits at an accredited college or university in areas of their current teaching assignment or in other areas requested by the Superintendent, shall be reimbursed for 100% of the tuition costs and registration fees up to an individual limit of $900.00 for a full year, July 1 to June 30.

      Teachers who take graduate credits at an accredited college or university in areas other than their current teaching assignment, but related to any potential teaching assignments in the Maywood School District and not upon request of the Superintendent, shall be reimbursed for 50% of the tuition costs and registration fees up to an individual limit of $500.00 for a full year, July 1 to June 30.

      Funds for courses taken under 1 and 2 above will be reimbursed under the following conditions:

          Courses to be taken must receive the prior approval of the Superintendent.

          Courses must be taken at an accredited college of university.

          A passing grade of B or better, as shown on an official transcript copy, must be earned for the course. Reimbursement will not be provided for courses which are audited or are offered on a pass/fail basis.

          Proof of tuition, receipt from college, or a canceled check must be presented to the Board.

          Credit for approved courses will be awarded on the basis of fifteen (15) hours attendance per credit, per course.

          Reimbursement to staff members shall be made within forty-five (45) days of the approved submittal of complete documentation of course grade and tuition payment.

          Reimbursement to staff members shall be made within forty-five (45) days of the full submittal of the approved costs, in regard to conferences, workshops, seminars, in-service training programs or other approved sessions.

The Board shall pay reasonable expenses (including registration fees, meals, overnight lodging, and/or transportation) incurred by employees attending conferences, workshops, seminars, in-service training programs or other such sessions pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:11-12.

Secretaries may be entitled to reimbursement for tuition and fees for courses taken to improve their professional performance up to $400.00 per year, per individual from July 1 through June 30. Courses must be applied for and approved in advance by the Superintendent of Schools.

Any teacher who receives a tuition reimbursement payment pursuant to this section shall be required to remain in the employ of the Board for a period of no less than two (2) years from the date of such payment. A failure on the part of the teacher to remain in the employ of the Board for two (2) years will result in them being required to reimburse the Board for any and all monies paid to them pursuant to this section. Such payment shall be made within thirty (30) days of separation. Further, such a teacher shall also be liable for any and all monies, including reasonable attorney's fees, expended by the Board in an effort to recover these funds. This provision applies to those teachers who have been employed by the Board for less than ten (10) years.

ARTICLE 6 – TEACHER EVALUATION

All monitoring or observation of the work performance of a teacher shall be conducted openly and with the full knowledge of the teacher.

ARTICLE 7 – TEACHER EMPLOYMENT

Effective July 1, 2002, each teacher shall be placed on his/her proper salary step schedule as of the beginning of the school year. Steps do not equate to years of service.

      All lateral movements (from BA to MA to MA+30) will be implemented effective September 15 or February 15 of the contract school year. Only one (1) lateral move on the guide, per person, per year will be allowed.

      The following restrictions apply:

      A teacher's lateral movement shall be permitted on September 15 only if proof of course completion is handed in on or before September 15 of that school year.

      A teacher's lateral movement shall be permitted on February 15 only if proof of course completion is handed in on or before February 15 of that school year.

      A teacher shall notify the Superintendent in writing of any anticipated course completions by February 15 of the prior school year.

      In order to be eligible for placement on the Masters +30 column, an employee must have accumulated the thirty (30) credits after the achievement of his/her Masters degree. Credits earned before the Masters degree or Bachelors degree will not be considered for eligibility to move to the Masters +30 column. Only those credits acquired after the Masters degree in an accredited program, where a B or better grade had been earned, shall be counted toward the placement in this column. All movement on the salary guide must be approved by the Board.

The initial placement of a new teacher on the salary guide shall be a matter of agreement between the teacher and the Board. After the first year of employment, the new teacher shall progress along the steps of the salary guide in the same manner as other staff members, as per the negotiated agreement.

If no salary agreement has been reached for the following school year by May 15, teachers shall be notified of their salary status no later than thirty (30) calendar days after the Board and the Association approve the Agreement.

The work year for teachers shall be one hundred eighty-six (186) days. The first and last day of the work year shall be non-student days. Teachers new to the district shall work one (1) additional non-student day at the beginning of the work year. The Board retains the right to schedule instructional and/or in-service days on one hundred and eighty-three (183) of the remaining one hundred eighty-four (184) days, while the remaining day shall be an in-service day.

ARTICLE 8 – LEAVE OF ABSENCE

Certified employees of the Maywood School System shall be allowed twelve (12) days sick leave per year, cumulative with two (2) additional non-cumulative days sick leave, without deduction in salary, for combined personal injury or illness.

      Ten (10) month non-certificated employees shall be allowed ten (10) days sick leave per year, cumulative, with two (2) additional non-cumulative days sick leave, without deduction in salary, for combined personal illness or injury.

      Personal illness or injury is interpreted to cover personal illness or injury to the staff member.

      Cumulative Leave:

          Any employee who is appointed after the opening of school shall be credited with one (1) day of sick leave for each month he/she teaches/works during that year.

          At the beginning of a teacher’s term of employment each year and irrespective of the time beginning actual service, each teacher shall have immediately available for use his/her entire sick leave allowance for that year as defined above.

          Absence on sick leave shall be charged first to the annual allowance of any employee until it is fully utilized, second to the two (2) non-cumulative sick days, and thereafter to the accumulated credit.

          Accumulation of sick leave shall be retroactive to the date of employment.

      Medical Certification
          The Board may require a doctor’s certificate for any use of sick leave; otherwise a full salary deduction will be made.
      Leave – Accumulative/Non-Accumulative
          No employee shall lose his/her accumulated allowance of unused days of sick leave by reason of having been on leave of absence, nor shall the employee accumulate any additional days of allowance during the leave of absence, or due to absence in military or naval service of the United States, or the American National Red Cross in time of national emergency.
      Termination of Services
          The salary of any employee shall terminate at the time of his/her discharge, resignation, or death.

          No more than the above allowance per year shall be granted to any employee without special action of the Board.
Death in Family
      Immediate Family
          Absence due to death in the employee’s immediate family (spouse, child, mother, father, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister, brother or grandparent) shall be allowed, with pay, for a period not to exceed seven (7) consecutive calendar days in each such case.
      Non-Immediate Family
          Absence due to death in the employee’s non-immediate family not living in the household of the employee shall be allowed, with pay, on the day of the funeral.

          An official signed statement by each Employee, plus documentation confirming the need for the benefit for immediate or non-immediate family death, must be submitted to the Superintendent for approval following each absence.
Professional Days
      The main purpose of professional days shall be for professional advancement, and therefore, upon the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools, a teacher, without deduction from his salary, may be requested and/or allowed as many as two (2) days in the school year for visiting grades or classes similar to his own in other schools. All teachers visiting shall make a report in writing (duplicate) as may be required by the Superintendent of Schools.

      In the event of attendance at education conventions and meetings approved by the Superintendent, there shall be no deduction in professional days allowance.

Court Order
      Absences from school by reason of legal process, including subpoena, issued by a court of competent jurisdiction to an employee who is not a party of interest in the matter shall be allowed, with pay, provided that the legal process is filed with the Superintendent of Schools. If an employee is a party to a suit, absence from school in that connection shall be without pay.
Personal Business
      An employee will be permitted two (2) days off within the school year, non-cumulative, for personal affairs (including religious holidays) with prior notification to the Superintendent without loss of salary. However, such days shall not be prior to or following school recess or holiday.

      In addition to the above, three (3) days may be permitted at the discretion of the Superintendent for illness in the immediate family without loss of pay. Immediate family shall be defined as spouse, child, mother, father, sister, or brother.

Extended Leaves of Absences
      Leave of absence without pay may be authorized upon recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools and approved by the Board.

      Length of Period

          A leave shall not be granted for more than one (1) year for reasons of personal illness, injury, or for rest and recuperation, but any employee who has been granted a year’s leave of absence may apply to have the leave of absence extended.
      Official Notice
          Employees on leave of absence shall inform the Superintendent of Schools by registered mail before November 1, (if a first semester leave has been granted), or March 1, (if the second semester or a full school year leave has been granted), specifying their intention with respect to returning for duty the following semester and/or school year. Failure of an employee on leave to give such notice shall be interpreted as indicating such employee does not wish to return as a member of the staff of the Maywood school district.
      Medical Examination
          If an application for a leave of absence is favorably considered by the Superintendent of Schools, the applicant may be given a physical examination at the direction of the Board. In lieu of such an examination, the applicant may submit a report upon a physical examination made by a physician and acceptable to the Board, for the purpose of determining either the extent of the illness, injury, or the necessity of recuperation, or for the purpose of determining whether there is reasonable probability that he or she shall be physically able to return to service and to carry on the prescribed work as may be assigned by the Administration.

          The Board reserves the right to determine the number of employees that may be granted a leave of absence in any one year.

          The period of leave of absence without pay shall not be counted as a period of service for the purpose of determining placement on any salary guide.

      Leaves
          Employees who are drafted or enlist for military service are subject to placement, upon discharge, according to state and federal laws.

          Teachers who return to the Maywood School System upon termination of a leave granted under H-2, below, shall be placed on the salary schedule at the level he would have achieved if he had not been on leave.

          Employees on leave for a year or more, or for the major part of a year, shall not receive any increments for the period of such absence, nor shall such period of absence, except for teacher’s participating in programs granted under H-2 below and military duty, count toward experience on the guide. Upon return to duty, the teacher shall be placed on the step of the salary guide corresponding to his experience which will not include the time allotted for his leave of absence.

          All leaves of absence are granted from the Maywood School System and not from a specific position herein.

          No leave of absence shall be granted for employment in another business or occupation, other than provided specifically in this Agreement.

          Benefits to which employees are entitled upon return from leave are covered by the tenure law, state, and federal laws.

          All applications for extended leaves of absence or for extensions or renewals of such leaves shall be made in writing to the Superintendent in accordance with the Board’s Rules and Regulations.

Sabbatical Leave
      The sabbatical leave plan is designed to help maintain instructional service at the highest level of quality and efficiency. While satisfactory service is its prerequisite, sabbatical leave is not a reward for past accomplishment. It is an opportunity made available to improve themselves professionally so that they may better serve the Maywood Public Schools.

      An application for such leave shall be recommended by the Superintendent and approved by the Board, only when in their considered judgment, the professional competence of the staff member and the general efficiency of the school system will be benefitted.

PROCEDURES REGARDING SABBATICAL LEAVE

In these regulations, the words “professional employee” shall be considered as including all certified personnel.

Eligibility

Any professional employee who has completed seven (7) years of continuous and satisfactory service in the Maywood Public Schools may be granted a sabbatical leave. A full year’s sabbatical leave may not be split between two (2) different school years.

Purpose and Obligation

The general reasons for sabbatical leave shall include the following:

Study, including residence requirement for graduate degree.

Travel, when associated with subject field.

Research leading toward publication.

Writing for publication when in subject field.

Other approved purposes.

Work opportunities, when minor in nature and directly growing out of one of the above purposes may be approved; however, this policy is not intended to provide for the substitution of full time, fully compensated employment in place of the regular professional assignment in Maywood.

The employee granted a sabbatical leave shall make a written report to the Superintendent within a reasonable time after returning to his professional assignment in Maywood.

Number of Leaves

Not more than two (2) professional employees may be granted sabbatical leave for the same academic year.

Application for Leave

Application shall be made on forms obtained from the Superintendent’s Office. Applications shall be submitted to the Superintendent no later than the first school day in January of the year preceding the school year for which the leave is requested. No other applications will be considered except under very unusual circumstances not attributable to the free choice of the applicant.

The Superintendent shall receive applications, evaluate them, and prepare recommendations for transmission to the Board. He may prepare a waiting list in order of priority if such becomes necessary because of an excess of applicants.

The recommendations of the Superintendent shall be transmitted to the Board. The decision of the Board shall be transmitted to each applicant in writing, not later than March 1. A teacher granted a sabbatical leave shall notify the Board of his final decision to take the leave or not, not later than April 15.

Approved sabbatical leaves shall generally start in September, except under very unusual circumstances not attributable to the free choice of the applicant.

Status of Tenure and Pension

The period of sabbatical leave shall count as regular service for the purpose of retirement planning and placement on the salary schedule and contributions by the professional employee to the retirement fund shall continue as usual during each period. Tenure rights shall not be impaired to the extent permitted by law.

Salary

The salary granted to a professional employee on sabbatical leave shall be 50% of the salary to which he would be entitled if not on leave, less the regular deductions for taxes, pension, and insurance.

Salary shall be paid in accordance with the general time schedule in the Maywood School System.

Professional employees on sabbatical leave shall not receive compensation from other employers without prior approval of the Superintendent.

Subsequent Service

As a condition to such leave, the professional employee shall enter into a contract to continue in the service of the Maywood Board of Education for a period of not less than two (2) years after the expiration of the leave of absence.

If a professional employee fails to continue in service after such sabbatical leave, he shall repay to the Board a sum of money bearing the same ratio to the amount of salary received while on sabbatical leave that the unperformed part of the two subsequent years of service bears to the full two years, unless the professional employee is incapacitated or has been discharged.

Illness or Accident

Should the approved sabbatical program be interrupted by serious accident or illness, this fact shall not constitute a breach of the conditions of such leave nor prejudice the professional employee against receiving all the rights and benefits provided for under the terms of sabbatical leave, providing the Superintendent was notified of such accident or illness by registered letter within ten (10) days of its occurrence.

Forfeiture of Leave

If the Superintendent learns that a professional employee is not fulfilling the purpose for which the sabbatical leave was granted, he shall report this fact to the Board and the Board may terminate the sabbatical after giving the professional employee an opportunity to be heard.

Sabbatical to Maternity Leave

If a professional employee on sabbatical leave determines that she is pregnant, she shall report this to the Superintendent and shall be transferred from sabbatical to maternity leave as of the date upon which she would have been required to accept leave under the rules regulating maternity leave.

Physical Examination

If an application for sabbatical leave is favorably considered by the Superintendent, the applicant may be given a physical examination at the discretion of the Board for the purpose of determining whether there is reasonable probability that he will be physically able to return to service for the minimum period required by these regulations.

Professional Leaves

      The Board agrees that up to two (2) employees on tenure, designated by the Association shall, upon request, be granted leave of absence without pay for up to one (1) year for the purpose of engaging in activities of the Association and its affiliates.

      A leave of absence without pay of up to two (2) years may be granted to any teacher on tenure who serves as an exchange teacher or overseas teacher, and is a full-time participant in any such programs, or who accepts a Fulbright Scholarship, or other worthwhile programs recommended by the Superintendent and approved by the Board.

          A teacher who returns to the Maywood School System upon termination of a leave granted under H-2 above shall be placed on the salary schedule at the level he would have achieved if he had not been on leave.
Maternity/Paternity/Adoption Leave

          Employees shall be granted maternity leaves of absence without pay in accordance with the guidelines established by court decisions under the Federal and State Family Leave Act. (29 U.S.C.A. 2601 et seq.- N.J.S.A. 34:11B-1 et seq.)
      Definition
          The term "maternity leave" refers to a voluntary absence from work to prepare for the birth of a child or to care for the child after birth. A pregnant Employee who wishes to request maternity leave may:

          Request a maternity leave beginning before the birth, while she is still physically able to work, and ending after birth.

          Work until she becomes physically disabled, use her sick leave during the period of disability, and use maternity leave to care for the child after she has recovered from the pregnancy-related disability.

          An Employee shall be considered temporarily disabled for a period of four (4) weeks before the expected due date of the child and four (4) weeks following the delivery of the child. During this period the Employee may use all or part of her annual and accumulated sick leave.

      Notification
          All initial applications for maternity leave shall be made in writing to the Superintendent.

          Any Employee intending to apply for the maternity leave shall advise the Superintendent as soon as possible. The Employee shall deliver to the Superintendent a physician's certificate stating the expected delivery date of the child.

          The Employee's request for maternity leave shall be in writing to the Superintendent at least 90 days prior to the date that she wishes her leave to commence. Such written request shall specify the dates when the Employee wishes her leave to commence and to terminate.

          Leaves will normally begin on a date mutually agreed to by the Employee, physician, and the Superintendent and shall extend to the reinstatement date.

          When in the opinion of the Board, the Employee's condition is in jeopardy, her job performance is declining, or absences place the progress of her students in jeopardy, the Board has the right to require a medical examination at its expense. Upon the recommendation of the medical examiner, the Board reserves the right to place the Employee on maternity leave immediately.

      Length of Leave
          Leave extending up to one (1) full year from the effective date will be granted.

          Leaves will normally begin on a date mutually agreed to by the Employee, physician, and the Superintendent and shall extend to the reinstatement date. In cases of adoption, the leave shall commence on the employee receiving de facto custody of the infant, or either, if necessary to fulfill the requirements for adoption.

          Child Care Provision - Tenure Teachers Only

              A one (1) year (September 1 through June 30) child care leave shall be granted subsequent to maternity/paternity leave for tenured employees only. Such leave will be without pay. Notification of an employee's intent to request such leave must be submitted, in writing, to the Superintendent no later than April 15 in order to begin an extended leave from September 1 through June 30 of the following school year.
      Paternity
          The Board shall grant any male Employee an unpaid leave of absence to provide necessary care for his newborn child to the same extent and by the same procedure provided for maternity leaves. However, in the event that both parents are Employees of the Board, only one (1) parent may apply for and be granted child rearing or maternity leave.
      Adoption
          In the case of adoption, the Board shall grant any Employee an unpaid leave of absence to the same extent and in the same procedure provided by maternity leave. The leave shall commence upon the Employee receiving de facto custody of the infant, or to fulfill the requirements for adoption.
      Resumption of Duties
          Four (4) weeks before the reinstatement date, the employee shall forward in writing to the Superintendent a statement by her physician, certifying her ability to resume her normal duties.

          Reinstatement shall be at the beginning of the next contract year following expiration of the leave or the employee may elect to take an available position for which she qualified at any time after the expiration of her leave.

          Placement upon return from leave will be to a position for which the employee is qualified although not necessarily to the same position, building or grade level.

          The best interests of the pupils will be protected as determined by the Superintendent of Schools.

      Interrupted Pregnancy
          In cases of interrupted pregnancy, the employee may return to active duty when her health will permit. Written verification from her physician that she is capable at that time of returning to her normal duties must be provided by the employee.

Additional leave may be granted at the discretion of the Board. Immediate family shall mean spouse, child, mother or father, or a relative who lives within the household of the employee.
Employees shall be covered by the terms of the State Family Leave Act and the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act as those may be amended from time to time. Any provision of this Article interpreted to be in conflict with either of those statutes shall be unenforceable.

No additional staff will move off-guide.

Teachers who are eligible for advancement to the MA or MA+30 column will move to the appropriate column and will be placed on the step number that they would have been on, had they not moved horizontally. (For example, someone who would have been on BA Step 13 who obtains a Masters degree would move to MA Step 13). Years of experience of other staff members on the advanced column will not affect step placement of staff who move horizontally across the guide.
