PREAMBLE

This agreement is entered into this ___ day of August, 2005, by and between the BOARD OF EDUCATION OF FLORHAM PARK, MORRIS COUNTY, NEW JERSEY, hereinafter called the “Board”, and the FLORHAM PARK EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, hereinafter called the “Association”.


ARTICLE I – RECOGNITION

A. The Board hereby recognizes the Association as the sole and exclusive negotiating agent for the purpose of collective negotiations in any and all matters relating to terms and conditions of employment on behalf of all instructional and non-instructional personnel employed by the District with the following exceptions:

Superintendent of Schools
School Business Administrator/Board Secretary
Principals
Administrative Secretary to the Superintendent-Confidential
Administrative Secretary to the School Business Administrator/Board Secretary – Confidential
Technology Coordinator
School Bus Drivers

In addition, any other employees deemed to be supervisory or “confidential” pursuant to N.J.S.A.
34:13A-5.3.

B. (1) Unless otherwise indicated, the term “employee” or “employees” when used hereinafter in this Agreement, shall refer to all employees represented by the Association in the negotiating unit defined above, and references to male employees shall include female employees.

(2) Unless otherwise indicated, the term “teacher” or “teachers” when used hereinafter in this Agreement, shall refer to all professional staff members represented by the Association in the negotiating unit defined above, and references to male employees shall include female employees.


ARTICLE II – GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

A. DEFINITION OF TERMS:

A “grievance” shall mean a complaint by an employee (1) that there has been as to him a violation, misinterpretation or inequitable application of any of the provisions of this Agreement, or (2) that he has been treated unfairly or inequitably by reason of any act or condition which is contrary to established Board policy or administrative practice governing or affecting employees. However, the term “grievance” shall not apply to any matter for which (a) a precise method of review is prescribed by law or State Board Rule having the force and effect of law, or (b) the Board is without authority to act. A non-tenure teacher presenting a complaint which arises from not being re-employed has the right to use only Levels 1, 2, and 3. (As used in this definition an “Employee” shall mean also a group of employees having the same grievance.)



B. PROCEDURES:

The importance of having grievances processed as quickly as possible suggests that the number of days indicated at each level should be considered as a maximum and every effort made to expedite the process. The time limits may, however, be extended by mutual written agreement. A grievance must be filed within thirty (30) days of the actual event or when the grievant knew or should have reasonably known of said event.

If a grievance is filed too late in the school year to provide time to process it through all the steps in the grievance procedure before the terms end, the time limits set forth in the various steps shall be reduced so that the grievance procedure may be exhausted prior to the end of the school term or as soon thereafter as is practicable. A copy of all correspondence must be sent to the Association and the Board.

Level One:

An employee with a grievance shall discuss it first with his immediate superior, with the objective of resolving the matter informally. If an impasse occurs, a written grievance shall be presented to the immediate superior of the employee, and said employee shall be entitled to a reply, in writing, within five (5) working days of said written complaint.

Level Two:

If the aggrieved is not satisfied with the disposition of this grievance at Level One, he must appeal, in writing, to the Superintendent of Schools within five (5) working days after the decision at Level One, or ten (10) working days after the grievance was presented, whichever is sooner. The Superintendent shall reply in writing, within ten (10) working days from receipt of said appeal.

Level Three:

If the aggrieved is not satisfied with the disposition of his grievance at Level Two, within ten (10) working days from receipt of the reply to his grievance from the Superintendent, said person will inform the Superintendent, in writing, that he wishes a non-public hearing with the Board. The Board shall receive an employee only after the employee has exhausted established methods of seeking redress of grievances in Levels One and Two. The Board shall schedule and conduct a hearing within ten (10) working days of receipt of the appeal to the Board and shall render a decision within ten (10) working days of said hearing.

Level Four:

If an employee still has a grievance at this stage of the proceedings, the employee must, within five (5) working days of receipt of the Board’s decision, request in writing, the Professional Rights and Responsibilities committee of the Association to determine if the grievance has merit. If the Professional Rights and Responsibilities Committee finds it has merit, the Committee will notify the Board, in writing, within five (5) working days, which notice will constitute notification of the intention to proceed to arbitration unless stated otherwise. If the Committee finds the case is without merit it will notify, in writing, both the Board and the aggrieved person who may still continue the case at his own expense. If the aggrieved person chooses to continue the case at his own expense he shall notify the Board, in writing, within five (5) working days after receipt of the notice from the Committee. Application for arbitration must be made, in writing, within five (5) working days after receipt by the Board of the notice of intention to arbitrate the matter, which application shall be made by the Association or the aggrieved person who chooses to continue the case at his own expense.

Level Five:

If the Board and employee or their representatives are unable to reach a harmonious agreement, the matter will be submitted to an arbitrator mutually chosen by the Board and the Association. If mutual agreement on the choice of said arbitrator cannot be reached within five (5) working days an appeal will be made, in writing, to the American Arbitration Association to appoint said arbitrator pursuant to their rules. The decision of the arbitrator shall be submitted to the Board and to the Association and shall be final and binding on the parties.

The costs for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem expenses and the cost of the hearing room, shall be borne equally by the Board and the Association. Any other expense incurred shall be paid by the party incurring same.

C. RIGHTS OF EMPLOYEES TO REPRESENTATION:

The aggrieved employee may be represented at all stages of the grievance procedure by himself or, at his option, by representative(s) selected by himself, or representative(s) chosen by the Association.

When an employee is not represented by the Association, the Association shall have the right to be present at any level and to state its views.

ARTICLE III – HEALTH INSURANCE:

A. The Board shall provide health insurance coverage as contained in the New Jersey State Health Benefits Program Plan (the “SHBP”). The SHBP shall be provided to eligible employees and dependents at no cost to the employees. Eligibility for part-time certificated and non-certificated staff will be consistent with the rules and regulations of the SHBP. The Board maintains the right to change its insurance coverage upon reasonable notice to the Association, provided that such coverage is equivalent to or better than that being currently provided.

B. The Board shall provide dental insurance as contained in the Delta Dental Advantage Plus Plan (the “Plan”). The Plan shall be provided to eligible employees and dependents. It is additionally understood that the Dental Insurance provision will reflect that all covered employees and dependents will pay a deductible for dental insurance as follows:

$50 for individual
$100 for family (the first two(2) individuals of a family will each pay the $50 individual deductible, thereby satisfying the $100 deductible).

This dental deductible shall not apply to preventative or diagnostic dental treatment, which shall not have any deductible. Moreover, the $50 individual deductible will apply to the $100 family deductible, when applicable.



Eligibility for part-time certificated and non-certificated staff will be consistent with rules and regulations of the Plan. The Board maintains the right to change its insurance coverage upon reasonable notice to the Association, provided that such coverage is equivalent to or better than that being currently provided.

Part time employees shall receive Board contributions in proportion to the fraction of the week they are employed by the district.

C. The Board shall provide a Prescription-Drug Plan to all eligible employees and dependents at no cost to the employees, with the following co-pays:
    $20.00 – Brand Name
    $10.00 – Generic
    $20.00/$10.00 – Brand Name/Generic Mail Order (it is agreed and understood that the co-pay for mail order shall be for each 90-day supply)
Part time employees shall receive Board contributions in proportion to the fraction of the week they are employed by the district.
    D. The Board shall continue to pay premiums for a Disability Insurance Plan for eligible employees. Employees hired on or after July 1, 1995 are ineligible for this benefit.

    E. Employees not eligible for paid health benefits at retirement shall have the opportunity to continue in the plan upon payment of the premium. Employees wishing to avail themselves of this provision shall pay to the Board an amount equal to one quarter of the premium in advance. The Board shall bill the employee at least thirty days prior to the payment due date.

    F. Part-Time instructional and non-instructional employees shall be eligible to purchase health insurance and receive a Board contribution in proportion to the work-week, e.g., a Staff Assistant employed 3.8 hrs per day is based on 3.8 divided by seven (7) hours = 54% which represents the Board’s contribution towards the cost of benefits.

    ARTICLE VIII – EXTENDED LEAVES OF ABSENCE

    The parties to this agreement acknowledge that the following provisions will be applied in conformance with the Federal Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) and/or the New Jersey Family Leave Act (“NJFLA”) and the applicable regulations.

    A. MATERNITY LEAVE FOR TENURED TEACHERS:

    1. Natural Birth - The Board shall grant maternity leave, without pay, to any female teacher under tenure for a period not to exceed two (2) years upon request subject to the following stipulations and limitations:
      a. Maternity leave shall commence and terminate on the dates requested by the teacher as specified to the Superintendent, in writing, at least sixty (60) days prior to the date on which her leave is to begin.
          In the event the teacher’s physician certifies to the Board that termination of employment in less than sixty (60) days is necessary to protect the health of the mother and/or child, the Board will permit such earlier commencement of leave as is required by the circumstances. In addition to the sixty (60) days’ notice, the teacher shall advise the Superintendent during the first three (3) months of her pregnancy of the fact of her pregnancy and of her prospective plans for taking maternity leave. The teacher shall provide the Superintendent with her best estimate of when the maternity leave will commence and terminate. Said preliminary advice shall not be binding upon the teacher and shall not be deemed to be in lieu of the formal notice required above.

      b. The Board may require a teacher, during her pregnancy, to produce a certificate from her physician stating that she may continue working effectively at the duty to which a teacher has been assigned. The Board shall not require the teacher to produce such a certificate (updated) more than once every thirty (30) calendar days.

      c. Physical Incapacity – The Board may require a pregnant teacher to commence her maternity leave prior to the time period stipulated above if her physical condition or capacity is such that her health would be impaired if she were to continue teaching, or if her teaching performance has substantially declined from the time immediately prior to her pregnancy and which physical incapacity shall be deemed to exist only if:

      The pregnant teacher fails to produce a certificate from her physician stating that she is medically able to continue teaching; or
      The Board of Education’s physician and the teacher’s physician agree that she cannot continue teaching; or
      Following any difference of medical opinion between the Board’s physician and the teacher’s physician, the Board requests expert consultation in which case the Board’s physician and the teacher’s physician shall mutually agree upon an impartial third physician who shall examine the teacher and whose medical opinion shall be conclusive and binding on the issue of medical capacity to continue teaching. The teacher and the Board shall share the expense of an examination by an impartial third physician pursuant to this Article equally.

      d. No teacher shall be prevented from returning to work on the grounds that there has not been a time lapse between childbirth and the desired return. The Board may require a teacher, after birth of her child, to produce a certificate from her physician showing that she is physically capable of resuming her duties. If the Board’s physician is in disagreement, that conflict of medical opinion shall be resolved in the same manner as set forth above in (c).

      e. Any maternity leave requested to terminate on a date other than September 1 may be extended within the two (2) year limitation provided that such extension is requested in writing at least ninety (90) days prior to the originally requested date.

      f. Any teacher granted maternity leave without pay according to the provisions of this Article may, at her discretion, elect to substitute all or any part of her accumulated sick leave in lieu thereof during the period commencing 30 days prior to delivery and ending 30 days after delivery. This period may be extended where the employee’s physician demonstrates the need for such extended sick leave.

      2. Adoption
        Any teacher adopting a child shall receive similar leave which shall commence upon his/her receiving de facto custody of the said child, provided, however, the teacher adheres to the notice requirements above, where applicable.
      3. Substitute Work
        Following childbirth or adoption, no teacher on maternity leave shall, on the basis of said leave, be denied the opportunity to substitute in the Florham Park School district in the area of his/her certification or competency.
      B. MATERNITY LEAVE FOR NON-TENURED TEACHERS:

      A non-tenured teacher who is pregnant shall be permitted to continue to work until such time as the School Physician shall certify to the Board that, in the physician’s opinion, said teacher’s pregnancy interferes with her proper and effective performance of the duties to which she has been assigned. A non-tenured teacher who complies with the requirements above, concerning maternity leave for tenured teachers, shall be granted maternity leave at the discretion of the Board, provided, however, absence of any non-tenured teacher beyond the school year (current) for which she was originally hired or to offer tenure or a new contract to a non-tenured teacher who would not have otherwise obtained it. No period of time while on maternity leave shall be credited to such non-tenured teacher with respect to acquiring status as a tenured teacher.

      C. MATERNITY LEAVE – TENURED SUPPORT STAFF:

      A tenured employee may be granted up to one (1) year’s leave of absence, without pay, as a maternity leave of absence. Request for maternity leave of absence should be instituted no later than two (2) weeks prior to the end of the fifth month. An employee shall be required to notify the Superintendent during the first three (3) months of pregnancy. The Board may require a physician’s authorization for an employee to continue working during pregnancy.

      None of the terms of this Article, Sections A, B or C shall affect the Superintendent’s responsibility and authority to determine the ability of an employee to properly and effectively perform the duties to which she is contracted.

      D. MISCELLANEOUS LEAVES OF ABSENCE:

      1. A leave of absence of up to one (1) year, without pay, may be granted for the purpose of caring for a sick member of the employee’s immediate family.

      2. The Board for good reason may grant other leaves of absence, without pay.


      E. Upon return from leave granted pursuant to these Sections an employee shall be placed on the salary step on the level at which he or she was located at the time of taking leave. All benefits to which an employee was entitled at the time his leave of absence commenced, including unused accumulated sick leave remaining after the leave, and credits toward sabbatical eligibility, shall be restored to him upon his return and he shall be assigned to the same position, if available, which he held at the time said leave commenced.

      F. Except as otherwise expressly provided hereinabove, all extensions or renewals of leaves shall be applied for in writing by March 1 of the school year during which the leave expires. Approvals or rejections of such requests shall be sent in writing to the employee by April 15 of that year.


      ARTICLE IX – TEMPORARY ASSIGNMENTS/SUPPORT STAFF

The employee’s immediate family shall be defined as follows: father, mother, spouse, child, brother, sister, grandchild or any member of the immediate household.

      4. No personal days may be taken prior to or after a holiday (unless approved by the Superintendent of Schools).

      B. BEREAVEMENT LEAVE WITH PAY

      Any Bereavement Leave with pay provided for herein is for the sole purpose of arranging and attending funeral services and providing for a reasonable mourning period.

      ARTICLE XI – TEACHER/ADMINISTRATION RELATIONS

      Both the Association and the Board recognize the importance of effective communications and working relations between the staff and the District administrators. Most operating problems must be resolved on that level rather than brought to the negotiating table. The purpose of this Article is to provide agreement that standing committees shall be established to ensure prompt, efficient disposition of any problems relating to working conditions and operating facilities; curriculum matters are to be resolved through the Superintendent of Schools.

      Of the committees referred to above, there shall be one (1) committee called the District Council Committee, and one (1) for each building in the District called the Building Council Committee.


      A. DISTRICT COUNCIL COMMITTEE

      Organization and operation of the District Council Committee shall be according to the following guidelines:

      1. The intent of the Committee will be to establish effective communications between the staff and administrators.

      2. The committee shall consist of:

      a. two teachers from each building selected by the Association.
      b. a Principal selected by the Superintendent.
      c. the Superintendent
      d. the President of the Association.

      3. The Committee shall meet once a month, the time and date to be settled by mutual agreement.

      4. The Committee will elect its own Chairman and Recorder. Neither the Superintendent nor the President of the Association shall hold either position.

      5. Members of the Committee shall have the responsibility of communicating back to the group they represent on discussions held at the Committee Meeting. The Principals shall set aside a time period at their building meetings for such report.

      6. This Committee shall have no official administrative or policy adoption authority, rather it will serve as a means of communication and advisement.

      7. The minutes of each meeting are to be kept and distributed to all professional staff employees.

      8. The agenda shall be prepared by mutual agreement and such agenda shall be prepared in written form by the Superintendent and shall be distributed to all Committee members not less than two (2) working days prior to the meeting. Additional items may be put on the agenda at the time of the meeting, with the affirmative vote of the majority of its members and the consent of the Superintendent.



      B. BUILDING COUNCIL COMMITTEE

      ORGANIZATION OF THE BUILDING COUNCIL COMMITTEES

      The Building Principal and the Association Senior Faculty Representative shall be permanent members of the Building Council Committee and will determine the membership and operating method of the Committee at their schools. The Building Council Committee will consider matters of direct concern to the specific schools represented by said committee. Matters not resolved at the Building Council Committee shall be referred to the District Council Committee.

      1. Request for sabbatical leave must be received by the Superintendent, in writing, in such form as may be mutually agreed upon by the Florham Park Board of Education and the Superintendent no later than December 1st prior to the year for which absence is requested. Action must be taken on all such requests no later than March 1st of the school year preceding the school year in which the sabbatical is requested.

      2. No more than two (2) teachers of the system shall be granted a sabbatical leave for the same year.

      3. The salary granted for one (1) year’s sabbatical leave shall be one-half (1/2) of the salary the teacher would be entitled to if not on leave.

Salary payments shall be made in accordance with the schedule for payment of salaries in the school system.

      4. Upon return from sabbatical leave, a teacher shall be placed on the salary schedule at the level, which he would have achieved had he remained actively employed in the system during the period of his absence. The teacher shall retain all previously accrued benefits.

      5. As a condition to the granting of a sabbatical leave, the teacher shall have agreed to continue in the service of the Florham Park Schools for a period of at least two (2) years after the expiration of the leave of absence. Failing to so continue service, the teacher shall repay, on demand, to the Board of Education the full salary received while on leave, unless such teacher is incapacitated, has been discharged or has been released for good and sufficient reasons by the Board of Education from his obligation.

      6. Applicants for a sabbatical shall agree to abide by all written conditions of policy set by the Board of Education to govern such leaves of absence.

      ARTICLE XIV – TEACHING HOURS AND TEACHING LOAD

      A. TEACHER DAY

      1. Check-in Procedure
          As professionals, teachers are expected to devote to their assignments the time necessary to meet their responsibilities, but they shall not be required to “clock-in or clock-out” by hours and minutes. Teachers shall indicate their presence for duty by placing a check mark in the appropriate column of the faculty “sign-in” roster, except for situations where the administrator in charge has determined that an individual teacher has repeatedly arrived later than the agreed arrival time without a justifiable reason. In those situations, the administrator must give written notice to the teacher that a “clock-in” procedure will be implemented if abuses continue.
      2. The arrival and departure times for staff are as follows:
            Brooklake School 8:15am and 3:15pm
            Briarwood School 8:15am and 3:15pm
            Ridgedale School 7:40am and 2:40pm
            Any modification in arrival and departure times in excess of hour is subject to negotiation between the Association and the Board, provided that agreement cannot be reached between the Administration and the Representative Council of the Association.
            Such above modification shall not in any way change the length of the school day.

            The workday for teachers shall consist of seven hours per day. (Note: there will be an administrative change in the amount of student contact time of 20 minutes per day, per teacher, in all schools commencing in SY 1999/2000.)
      3. Teachers may be assigned, on a rotating basis, to supervise pupils during the period between 8:15am and 8:40am at the elementary schools and from 7:40 am to 7:55 am at the middle school, without additional compensation. Teachers may be assigned, on a rotating basis, to supervise pupils during the dismissal period without additional compensation. The Board shall establish a rotating roster and assignments shall be made on the basis thereof. Every effort will be made to equalize such assignments among the teaching staff at each building.

      B. TEAM MEETINGS

      Elementary school teachers (grades K-5) shall utilize the time between 8:15am and 8:40am as a team period on two (2) days per week. The Board shall determine, in advance, which two (2) days of the week the team meetings shall be held for the year. The content of the team meetings shall not impinge upon any activity currently stipended in this agreement (i.e. committee work or curriculum development).

      C. NON-TEACHING PERIODS

      1. Each teacher is entitled to a duty free lunch period of duration equal to the student’s standard lunch period and is permitted to absent himself from the building during that period.

      2. Each teacher is entitled to an average over the school year of one (1) preparation period of each full school day and shall be expected to use that time in educationally related matters.

      2. Tuition reimbursement shall not exceed the current Rutgers per credit rate or the actual per credit rate paid if lower than the current Rutgers per credit rate. It is expressly agreed and understood that the actual per credit rate of reimbursement can vary based on the institution attended by the teacher, but in no event shall the actual per credit rate exceed the current Rutgers per credit rate. The actual credit reimbursement will be calculated by dividing the total funds per period plus applicable carry over funds by the total pre-approved credits satisfying all requirements for reimbursement.

      3. Total reimbursement shall not exceed $30,000.00 per year in the years 2004/2005, 2005/2006 and 2006/2007. Additionally, in each year the total of $30,000.00 will be divided into two equal amounts of $15,000.00 per period. The first $15,000.00 will be applied to approved courses which begin during the period July 1st through December 31st (also referred to as “summer/fall courses”) and the remaining $15,000.00 will be applied to approved courses which begin during the period of January 1st through June 30th (also referred to as “winter/spring courses”). Any unused portion of the $15,000.00 will be carried over to subsequent periods(s).

      4. Reimbursement for courses shall be limited to nine (9) credits per contract year per teacher.

      5. Reimbursement shall be made provided that:

      a. an official transcript showing successful completion of course or courses is submitted with a grade of B or better and receipt of the bill for tuition costs paid is submitted to the Office of the Business Administrator. Said documents shall be provided no later than February 15th and July 31st for the applicable period. Upon satisfactory completion, reimbursement will be made no later than March 1st and August 15th.

      C. SUPPORT STAFF – WORKSHOPS, ETC.

      1. The Board agrees to pay up to $100 per year for workshops, seminars and non-college credit courses taken by employees. Application for approval from the Superintendent shall be made in advance of taking the courses. To be approved, courses must, in the reasonable judgement of the Superintendent, be related to the employee’s work assignment.

      D. IN-SERVICE DAYS

      1. There shall be three (3) in-service days in addition to regularly scheduled work days.

      ARTICLE XVI – EMPLOYEES INVOLVED WITH EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

In the event that sixty (60) days notice is not possible due to an emergent event or because the employee has been terminated or resigned and is permitted to leave the district with less than sixty (60) days notice, the sixty-day (60) notice provision shall be waived.

      ARTICLE XVII – RIGHTS OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION

      The Board reserves to itself all rights of management of the School District and full jurisdiction and authority over matters of policy, rules and regulations and practices in furtherance thereof, and reserves, without limitation, all powers, rights, authority, duties and responsibilities conferred upon and vested in it by the Constitution and laws of the State of New Jersey and of the United States.
