WHEREAS, the Board of Education of the Township of Springfield, in the County of Union, New Jersey (the “Board”) and its entire staff are dedicated to the important task of providing the best possible education for the children in its district; and
WHEREAS, satisfactory fulfillment of this responsibility requires a climate of mutual trust and dependability on the part of both the Board and its staff to work together cooperatively, within their respective spheres, as the guardians of the public trust reposed in them respectively.
NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto agree as follows:
THIS AGREEMENT made this 20th day of December, Two Thousand and Four BY AND BETWEEN THE BOARD AND THE SPRINGFIELD SUPERVISORY ASSOCIATION MEMBERS (the “Association”):
A. Pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of the New Jersey Employer-Employee Relations Act; Chapter 123; Public Laws of 1974 (N.J.S.A. 34:13A-l et seq.) the Board recognizes the Association for the purpose of professional negotiations, as the exclusive representative for all certificated Assistant Principals, Non-Teaching Supervisors, Teaching Supervisors, Supervisor of Guidance, Supervisor of Special Services, and Vice Principal/Athletic Director, under contract with the Board and any new supervisory positions established by the Board. The members of this group shall be referred to as the Association within the framework of this Agreement.
B. It is further understood that the following certificated personnel are specifically excluded from this recognition:
2. Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction;
3. Business Administrator/Board Secretary;
4. Principals; and
5. Members and Associate Members of the Springfield Education Association.
1. A “grievance” is a claim by an Association Member, or the Association, based upon the interpretation, application or alleged violation of this Agreement.
2. Non-tenured Association Members shall not be permitted to grieve their non-re-employment.
The purpose of this procedure is to provide the means by which grievances can be appealed and resolved at the earliest level. Proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as possible.
1. An Association Member shall, within twenty (20) school days of the known occurrence of the claim, present in writing and promptly discuss the claim orally with his immediate supervisor with the objective of resolving the matter informally. Failure to do so shall be deemed to constitute an abandonment of the claim.
2. Within five (5) school days after that discussion the immediate supervisor shall issue a written memorandum to the grievant setting forth his/her determination.
3. If a satisfactory settlement is not reached at the informal level, the grievant may present the grievance in writing, within five (5) days after the determination made in Paragraph C.2 above, to the Superintendent of Schools or his designee. The written grievance shall set forth:
a. The nature of the grievance and remedy requested;
b. The nature and extent of injury or loss; and
c. The basis of dissatisfaction with the prior determination.
Failure to follow this procedure shall be deemed to constitute an abandonment of the grievance.
4. The Superintendent’s written decision shall be rendered to the grievant within fifteen (15) days after receipt of the written grievance by the Superintendent or his designee.
5. If the grievance is not satisfactorily disposed of in the prior step, then the grievance may be referred by the individual or the Association to the Board within ten (10) days of the completion of the proceedings in the preceding paragraph, or twenty-five (25) days after the grievance was delivered in writing to the Superintendent, whichever is sooner. The submission to the Board shall be in writing and shall include copies of all relevant documents previously considered in the grievance procedure together with a statement explaining the dissatisfaction with those decisions previously rendered. Failure to follow this procedure shall be deemed an abandonment of the grievance. The Board shall, in writing, within thirty (30) days, advise the Association and the individual of its determination and shall forward a copy thereof to the Superintendent.
6. Copies of all written documents referred to in (1) through (5) above shall be submitted to the Board President and the Board Attorney upon the date of their submission to the appropriate personnel as provided herein.
7. The stipulated times referred to in (1) through (5) above shall be considered as outer limits to be strictly followed except where extenuating circumstances occur, in which case the time limits specified may be extended upon the mutual written consent of the parties.
8. If the aggrieved person is not satisfied with the decision of the Board, notice of intention to proceed to mediation shall be given to the Board through the Superintendent within fifteen (15) days after the receipt of the decision which is being appealed. The grievance not resolved by timely resort to the foregoing procedure shall be subject to mediation initiated and conducted under the rules of the New Jersey Public Employee Relations Commission (“PERC”).
The mediator selected shall confer with the representatives of the Board and the aggrieved member and/or the member’s representative in an attempt to resolve the issue. During this time, the mediator shall be free to offer suggestions and opinions concerning ways to resolve the dispute. The mediator shall establish the procedure and time period.
The mediator shall limit him/herself to the issues submitted concerning alleged violations of the written terms of this Agreement. Alleged statutory violations may be appealed before the appropriate legal forum. Nothing can be added or subtracted from this Agreement between the parties or any policy of the Board.
D. RIGHTS OF ASSOCIATION MEMBERS
Any aggrieved Association Member may be represented at all stages of the grievance procedure by him/herself, or at his/her option, by representative(s) selected or approved by the Association or by legal counsel.
1. Group Grievance Procedure
The procedures for group grievances shall be the same as procedures for individual grievances.
2. Separate Grievance File
All documents, communications and records dealing with the processing of a grievance shall be filed in a separate grievance file and shall not be kept in the personnel file of any of the participants.
3. Continuation of Assignments
Any and all grievants 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 fully determined.
ASSOCIATION MEMBERS’ RIGHTS AND BENEFITS
The Board agrees to grant Association Members their right of inspection of their own personnel records and files as provided by PERC laws and decisions thereunder. The Board, in taking official action, is also granted the right to inspect an Association Member’s personnel record and files. All of the foregoing is subject to, and as provided in, PERC decisions, State law and decisions of the Commissioner of Education thereunder.
The program for special grants is a plan designed to help maintain instructional service at the highest level of quality and efficiency for certificated personnel. It is understood that satisfactory service is a prerequisite.
Association Members may apply for grants during each year of employment. Applicants may apply each year to the Superintendent for a non-cumulative grant of a maximum of $1,580. The calendar year is defined in the same manner as the school budget year of July 1 through June 30.
1. The applicant must submit to the Superintendent a brief outline of the purpose for which the grant is to be expended. If the proposed program is approved by the Superintendent, it is then brought to the attention of the Board for consideration. The applicant will be notified of the Board’s decision as soon as is practical, but, in any case, no later than December 1 for the spring semester and May 1 for the summer or fall semesters.
2. Application for the professional development grants must be submitted to the Superintendent not later than March 1 of the year preceding the one in which the grant is to be expended.
3. Requests for payment of grants shall be submitted on the official form, accompanied by a regular voucher.
4. Tuition fees received through Federal grants, etc., may not be duplicated by utilization of this policy. Tuition grants, subject to the above conditions, may be awarded during sabbatical leave.
D. MEMBERSHIP DUES
The Board shall reimburse Members of the Association for the cost of membership in Principals and Supervisors Association. Members of the Association shall also be reimbursed for the costs of membership in such professional associations selected by the Members as representing the job title and subject related to his/her assignment and approved by the Superintendent or his representative.
The policy of sabbatical leave is a plan designed to help maintain and improve the quality and efficiency of instructional services to the children of the Springfield Public Schools. This privilege is granted to certificated tenured Association Members in order that they may extend their professional competence and thus better serve the School District.
Preliminary application for sabbatical leave shall be made prior to December 15 of the year previous to the year for which the leave of absence is desired. The purpose, date of this application, and length of service will be factors in determining the number of grants within the budgetary limits for that year. The final application must be submitted by February 15. Due consideration shall be given to the reasonable and equitable distribution of the applications among the different schools and departments. The Board shall give notice of the approval for sabbatical leave, or rejection, together with an explanation thereof, no later than April 1 of the year previous to the year for which the leave is requested.
1. Since the policy for sabbatical leave is solely to promote the more efficient conduct of the schools, no application for such leave shall be recommended by the Superintendent or approved by the Board unless, after considered judgment, the professional competence of the staff member and the general efficiency of the school system will thereby be benefited.
2. During any sabbatical leave, the Association Members shall not engage in any employment for remuneration without the approval of the Superintendent and shall devote the major portion of his/her time and effort toward the purpose of the sabbatical leave
3. As a condition of sabbatical leave, the Association Members shall agree that, if he/she does not continue in service for two years after expiration of the leave of the absence, he/she shall be required to repay the Board a sum of money bearing the same ratio to the amount of salary received while on leave of absence, unless such Association Member is incapacitated, has been discharged without cause or has been released by the Board from this obligation.
4. If the Superintendent has reason to believe that an Association Member on sabbatical leave is not fulfilling the purpose for which the leave of absence was granted, he/she shall report this fact to the Board. The Board may eliminate the leave of absence for non-fulfillment of purpose after giving the Association Member involved the opportunity of a hearing.
5. If an Association Member on sabbatical leave shall ascertain that she is pregnant, she shall immediately report this fact to the Superintendent. The Superintendent shall, after considering her doctor’s report, recommend to the Board whether or not the leave shall continue, dependent upon the probability of the successful completion of the sabbatical program. Transfer to maternity leave shall be governed by the maternity leave policy.
1. Any Association Member who has completed seven (7) or more years of satisfactory service in the Springfield Public Schools may, on the recommendation of the Superintendent and the approval of the Board, be granted a leave of absence for one academic year or one-half (1/2) of an academic year, for the purpose of professional improvement through study and research. Such study shall be directly connected with his/her work in the school system. The Association Member’s application for a sabbatical shall outline in detail the proposed professional study plan for administrative review.
2. Any Association Member shall be eligible for another sabbatical leave after he/she has had seven (7) additional school years of service in the Springfield district. This time limit may be waived at the discretion of the Board.
The recipient shall receive, in lieu of salary, a sum equal to two-thirds (2/3) of the salary to which the Association Member would otherwise be entitled if not on leave, less such regular deductions for government income tax, Pension and Annuity Fund, and other deductions as required by law or customary in the School District. Said sum shall be paid in installments in accordance with the general time schedule for payment of salaries to employees in the regular employ of the School District.
1. An Association Member on sabbatical leave shall notify the Superintendent, in writing, on or before March 1 of that year, of his/her intention to return to duty. Failure to give such information on the part of the Association Member on leave will be interpreted as an indication that such Association Member does not wish to return to the employ of the Board. Every Association Member on sabbatical leave shall present a written report to the Superintendent covering the studies engaged in while on sabbatical leave and the benefits anticipated therefrom. Such report is due prior to August 1 but, in any event, not later than two months after the completion of the sabbatical program. If said report is not timely submitted, the Association Member shall repay to the Board an amount equaling one-half (1/2) of the salary received during the sabbatical leave.
2. Upon satisfactory completion of the sabbatical leave, the Association Member will be returned to service at a salary on the same basis as if he/she had rendered continued and satisfactory service in the school system during the interim.
A. DEFINITION OF TERMS
