ARTICLE III

1. Accumulative – Ten (10) days per academic year as per statute.

2. Unused sick leave is accumulative indefinitely.

3. The Board, at its discretion, may require a medical certificate.

B. Family Illness
1. Three (3) days per year, non-cumulative.

2. Family shall mean immediate family and shall include spouse, parent and child.

C. Death in Family
1. Three (3) days per occurrence, non-cumulative.


2. Family shall mean immediate family and shall include spouse, parent, grandparent, child and/or sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in- law, sister-in-law, grandchild, son-in-law and daughter-in-law.


D. Professional Absence
1. Three (3) days per year, non-cumulative, with the approval of the Chief School Administrator.

2. Two (2) days per year, non-cumulative, to attend the New Jersey Education Association Convention.

E. Personal Absence
Each year, the Board of Education will grant three (3) days, non-cumulative, with full pay for personal reasons. Three (3) unused personal days per year may be converted to cumulative sick leave. Two (2) days shall require forty- eight (48) hours prior notice, except in an emergency situation. One (1) day for compelling personal reasons shall require the approval of the Chief School Administrator. A personal day is construed to mean that such business is essential and requires the presence of the employee on a day school is in session.

F. Leaves of Absence – Maternity/Child Rearing
1. A member who is pregnant shall notify the Chief School Administrator (C.S.A.) as to the dates required for this leave.

2. Request for maternity leave of absence shall be made by completing the form “Application for Maternity or Child Rearing Leave of Absence”, and presenting it to the Chief School Administrator no later than six (6) weeks prior to the requested date of the leave. The member shall give the Chief School Administrator notice of her anticipated delivery date at least four (4) months prior to said date. The C.S.A. shall respond in writing to the request no later than thirty (30) calendar days from the time the request for the maternity leave is made.

The “maternity leave” of absence is for that period of time when the member is medically disabled and entitled to use any accrued sick leave. The “child rearing” leave of absence shall be that period during which the member is not medically disabled, and such leave shall be without pay.

3. The effective date of the leave shall be both in the best interest of the school and consistent with the health and welfare of the member. Both the start of any maternity leave and return date from any unpaid child rearing leave shall coincide with either the beginning of a marking period, or the
beginning of a unit of study, or at a time approved by the C.S.A. The teacher shall assign a grade for that portion of the course completed and shall meet with her replacement to facilitate a smooth transition.

4. The leave for a member under tenure may extend for a period of twenty-four (24) months per pregnancy. Any member on such leave who desires an extension shall make a written application by not later than four (4) months prior to the end of the initial approved leave period. Total leave, including the initial approved leave, shall in any event, not exceed twenty- four (24) months per pregnancy. The leave for a non-tenured member shall not exceed the existing employment contract.

5. A non-tenured member’s reinstatement after maternity/child rearing leave will depend upon the Board’s satisfaction with previous effectiveness. The Board is under no obligation to continue the employment of a non- tenured employee beyond the contracted period so long as the non-renewal of employment is not based solely upon a condition of pregnancy or childbirth. The maternity/child rearing leave period shall not be counted for tenure purposes.

6. Accumulated sick leave as prescribed by law will apply but only to the extent of the sick leave accumulated while employed at the Montague School District. Accumulated sick leave may only be used during periods of actual disability. All other periods during which a member is away from work as a result of child bearing or child rearing shall be deemed unpaid maternity leave. For the purpose of this Article, a member is entitled to a presumption of disability thirty (30) days before and thirty (30) days after the birth of her child.

7. Application for returning to work shall be made to the C.S.A. in writing four (4) months prior to the date in which they plan to return.

8. Upon return, the member shall be placed on the same step and guide in effect when their leave commenced, with all benefits previously accrued. If the member served five (5) full calendar months prior to the effective date of the leave, they will be placed on the next higher step upon returning in September of the following school year (or February 1).

9. Any tenure member adopting an infant child shall receive similar leave which shall commence upon the member’s receiving de facto custody of said infant, or earlier, if necessary, to fulfill the requirements for adoption.

10. The teacher may purchase health and medical insurance while on leave for a period of not more than two (2) years.

G. Leave of Absence
A one (1) year leave of absence, without pay, shall be granted to one (1) professional teaching staff member for each year covered by this Agreement. In order to be eligible a person must have not less than four (4) complete years of service to the Board. In the event that more than one (1) person requests such leave of absence, the person with the most seniority shall be given preference. The Board however, reserves the right to deny a leave of absence request, in that year, in the event that it is not able to obtain an appropriate substitute for the person who has requested such a leave of absence.

H. Excessive Absenteeism
1. When a staff absence exceeds the days provided for in this Section, the following applies. Each case will be reviewed by the Board of Education.

2. At the discretion of the Board, days may be deducted from the non- cumulative leave or salary may be deducted for each day absent at 1/200th of annual salary.

I. Each year of the school calendar will contain the following:
1. The day prior to the Thanksgiving break will be an early dismissal day. Afternoon meetings or other activities for teachers will not be scheduled on this day.

ARTICLE IV
TUITION REIMBURSEMENT

Only tuition and registration fees will be paid by the Board for each course taken by an individual. However, the following limitations will apply:

1. Courses shall be in a related field of study and subject to written approval by the Chief School Administrator prior to enrollment.

2. The Association shall monitor the tuition reimbursement requests to insure equitable participation is afforded to all eligible persons. No more than nine (9) credits per year may be taken by any one (1) teacher and the total amount of tuition reimbursement paid by the Board shall not exceed Twelve Thousand ($12,000) Dollars for each year that this Contract is in effect.

3. A written voucher shall be submitted to the Board with a transcript of course showing acceptable final grade to the Chief School Administrator, who shall forward the same to the Board for action at the Board’s next regularly scheduled meeting with his recommendation.

4. No payment will be made unless a grade of A or B is achieved.

5. The above items will be recognized by the Board for purposes of reimbursement as outlined above.

6. A teacher must reimburse the Board in full if he or she terminates employment with the Board within two (2) years from which he or she receives tuition payment from the Board, except in the following situations:

3. Party In Interest
A “party in interest” is the person or persons making the claim and any person including the Association or the Board who might be required to take action or against whom action might be taken in order to resolve the claim.

B. Purpose
The purpose of this procedure is to secure, at the lowest possible level, equitable solutions to the problems which may raise affecting teachers. Both parties agree that these proceedings shall be kept as informal and confidential at any level of the procedure.

C. Procedure
1. Time Limit – The number of days indicated at each level shall be considered as a maximum and every effort shall be made to expedite the process. The time limits specified may, however, be extended by mutual agreement.

3. Level One – Chief School Administrator – A teacher with a grievance shall first discuss it with the Chief School Administrator within fifteen (15) school days after the grievance has occurred, or as soon as the Administrator returns in the case of his absence, after which no claim may be made, and with the objective of resolving the matter informally.

The arbitrator’s decision shall be in writing and shall set forth his findings of fact, reasoning and conclusions on the issues submitted. The arbitrator shall be without power or authority to make any decision which requires the commission of an act prohibited by law or which is violative of the terms of this Agreement.
