          An employee processing a grievance shall be assured freedom from restraint, interference, coercion, discrimination or reprisal.
          Since it is important that grievances be processed as rapidly as possible, the number of days indicated at each level should be con-sidered as a maximum, and every effort should be made to expedite the process. The time limit specified may, however, be extended
    by mutual agreement.
          It is understood that employees 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.

    Level 1
          An employee with a grievance shall first discuss it with the immediate superior with the objective of resolving the matter informally. The immediate superior shall render an informal decision within ten (10) school days after the initial discussion. If the complainant is the Association, initial discussion shall be at the level of the Superintendent.

          The Board shall make a determination within thirty (30) school days of the receipt of the .grievance and shall, in writing, notify the aggrieved and the Association's Grievance Committee and the superior and Superintendent of its determination.

    ARTICLE XIII Continued

    Level 5
          In the event an aggrieved is dissatisfied with the determination of the Board, the aggrieved may request the Association's Grievance Committee, provided the grievance is a Category II grievance, to submit a formal demand for binding arbitration in accordance with the procedure hereinafter set forth. A request for such binding arbitration shall be made no later than fifteen (15) days following the determination of the Board. Failure to file within the said time shall constitute a bar to such arbitration unless the parties have extended the time by mutual agreement. In the event that the matter of whether the grievance is a Category II grievance so as to proceed to binding arbitration is at issue between the parties, jurisdiction to resolve the issue rests solely with the arbitrator (to be designated and agreed upon by the Board and by the Association).
          The arbitrator so selected shall confer with representatives of the Board and the Association and hold hearings promptly. The arbitrator shall issue the decision not later than twenty (20) days from the date of the closing of the hearing unless the time shall be extended by mutual consent.

The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding upon the Board and the Association.
        6. Arbitrability
          In the event the question of arbitrability of the grievance is raised between the parties, the matter shall be prompts determined by the arbitrator.

    TEMPORARY LEAVES OF ABSENCE/BENEFITS

    The Association and the Board agree that optimum conditions require regular attendance and that effective and efficient performance of all the functions involved in school operation likewise depend upon regular attendance of all employees. The following provisions are provided as safeguards against certain of the vicissitudes of life, and hence are a measure of security contributing to the peace of mind of all concerned. The Association agrees to cooperate with the Board in encouraging all employees to recognize and utilize these provisions only for this purpose, and also to assist the Board in discouraging any abuses of these benefits.

    A. PERSONAL ILLNESS OR INJURY
        Personal illness or injury is defined as absence because of personal disability due to illness or injury, or because of exclusion from school by the medical authorities on account of a contagious disease or quarantine for such disease in the immediate household.
        1. Each eleven (11) month employee of the Board shall be entitled to ten (11) days absence each year for personal illness. Such sick days not utilized in a particular year shall be accumulated without limit.
        2. Each ten and one-half (10 1/2) month employee of the Board shall be entitled to eleven (11) days absence each year for personal illness. Such sick days not utilized in a particular year shall be accumulated without limit.

    3. In the event an employee has exhausted the annual sick leave, or if in addition to annual sick leave, accumulated sick leave has also been exhausted, extended sick leave may be granted. Such additional leave may be immediately granted in the event it is consecutive with an absence which has been paid under the provisions of the preceding paragraph 1. In the event it is not consecutive with such an ab-sence, it may be granted beginning after ten (10) consecutive sche-duled work days of absence.
            Requests for such extended sick leave shall be considered only when submitted with a physician's certificate documenting the illness or injury.

            1/3 at the 2 year anniversary of retirement or 1/5 at next 3, 4 year anniversaries (at employees’ option).
            The daily rate of pay shall be determined by utilizing the following rate:
                10 month employee 1/210
                11 month employee 1/220
        All new hired personnel, after 7/1/95 will not receive the above.

    $85.00 for VP/Directors/Supervisors
    $100.00 for Principals

    7. In the event of the death of said retiree, all monies will be payable to the legal beneficiary (ies) as per schedule unless financial hardship exists. Upon request of the estate, payment will be made in full within 30 days.

    8. No employee shall be paid for accumulated sick leave if said employee elects to have their accumulated sick leave trans-ferred to their new employment. Each employee, upon receipt of the aforementioned payments and/or credits, shall sign a receipt thereof, a copy of which shall be retained by the Board.

    B. OCCUPATIONAL INJURY
        Any employee injured in the performance of their duties shall within twenty-four (24) hours report such injury to their immediate supervisor. The report shall be in writing on a form supplied by the Board. An employee so injured shall be paid the full salary or wages for the period of such absence for up to one (1) calendar year without having such absence charged to the annual or accumulated sick leave.
