2:3 This Agreement shall not be extended orally, and it is expressly understood that it shall expire on the date indicated, unless extended in writing.
3:1.1 A “grievance” is a written claim by an employee or group of employees that as to him, there has been Board action constituting a violation of this Agreement.
3:1.2 A grievance does not apply to any matter which (1) a method of review is prescribed by law or State Board Rule having the force and effect of law, or (2) a complaint of a non-tenured member which arises by reason of his/her not being re-employed, or (3) a complaint by 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.
3:1.3 A grievance to be considered under this procedure must be initiated by the employee within twenty (20) calendar days of its occurrence or within twenty (20) calendar days after the employee would reasonably be expected to know of its occurrence.

3:2.1 It is agreed by both parties that these proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any step of this procedure.
3:2.2 Failure at any step of this procedure to communicate the decision to the Grievant within the specified time limits shall permit the aggrieved 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 limit shall be deemed to be acceptance of the decision rendered at that step.
3:2.3 It is understood that the Grievant shall, during and notwithstanding the pendency of any grievance, continue to observe all assignments and applicable rules and regulations to the Board of Education until such grievance and any effect thereof shall have been fully determined.

3:3.2 Step Two (Board of Education)
If the Grievant is not satisfied with the decision rendered, or if no decision has been rendered within the specified time, the Grievant may, within ten (10) school days, appeal to the next step, the Board of Education. The Board of Education shall have ten (10) school days in which to communicate to the Grievant in writing its decision in the matter.
3:3.3 Step Three - If the aggrieved person is not satisfied with the disposition of his grievance at Step Two, or if no decision has been rendered by the Board within the time limits specified in Step Two, the Grievant may, within ten (10) school days after a decision by the Board or the expiration of the applicable time limit for issuance of the Board’s decision, whichever is sooner, request in writing that the Chairperson of the PR & R Committee submit the grievance to arbitration. The PR & R Committee shall consider the merit of the grievance, and may then, within fifteen (15) school days after receipt of a request by the aggrieved person, submit the grievance to arbitration by service of demand thereof upon the Board through the Superintendent.
3:3.4 The arbitrator so selected shall hold hearings promptly and shall issue his decision not later than thirty (30) calendar days from the date of the close of the hearings; or, if oral hearings have been waived, then from the date the final statements and proofs on the issues are submitted to him.

6:8 Maternity Leave -
Procedure: Maternity leave without pay shall be granted by the Board of Education in accordance with the following procedure:
6:8.1 Definition: The term “maternity leave” does not refer to involuntary absence from assigned duties solely during the period of pregnancy-related disabilities. The term “maternity leave” refers to a voluntary absence from active employment either:
6:8.1.1 commencing while the pregnant employee is physically able to effectively perform her duties and continuing through the period of a pregnancy-related disability;
6:8.1.2 commencing after the end of a pregnancy-related disability for the purpose of child care.
6:9 Adoption Leave -
6:8.2 All initial applications for, and applications for extensions or reduction of, maternity leave shall be made in writing to the Superintendent.
6:8.3 The employee shall request maternity leave of the Superintendent of Schools in writing at least sixty (60) days before the date she wishes her leave to begin. Such written request shall specify the date when the employee wishes her leave to begin and to end.
6:8.4 The requested date of commencement or termination of the maternity leave may be changed within a semester by the Superintendent if he finds that the grant of leave for those dates would substantially interfere with the administration of the school, provided that such change is not contrary to what is medically advisable.
6:8.5 Following the grant of such leave, the employee may request a reduction of maternity leave. Such request shall be in writing to the Superintendent. The Board may grant such proposed reduction. The Board may require the employee to produce a certificate from her physician stating that she is physically able to work effectively at her assigned duties.
6:8.6 The Board may require an employee during her pregnancy to produce certificates from her physician stating that she may continue working effectively at the duty to which she has been assigned.
6:8.7 In the event of any question as to the condition of the pregnant employee, a conference shall be arranged between the Board’s physician and the attending physician.
6:8.8 Nothing stated herein is intended to restrict the right of the Board to remove any pregnant employee from her duties if it should determine that her performance has substantially decreased from the time immediately prior to her pregnancy or for any other just cause.
6:8.9 Any employee shall be granted maternity leave for the entire academic school year in which the maternity leave began.
6:8.10 Any employee under tenure or who has received a tenure-year contract shall, upon timely request made in her original application, or by March 1st, be granted maternity leave for an additional academic school year. An employee on such maternity leave shall notify the Board in writing by March 1st of the school year proceeding the school year in which she is scheduled to return to active employment of her intention not to return to active employment. Such notification, or failure to begin active employment when due to return, shall be deemed a resignation from the District.
6:8.11 Employees on maternity leave shall not accept full-time employment in any other teaching or secretarial staff position. This does not prevent such employees from accepting employment as per diem substitutes in other school districts.
6:8.12 Any employee on maternity leave may place her name on the substitute list and shall receive the substitute’s per diem rate for which she is qualified, provided that she produces a certificate from her physician showing that she is physically able to perform such duties.
6:8.13 Subject to any law, an employee may not apply accumulated sick leave to any period of disability arising after a voluntary maternity leave has begun.
6:8.14 Time spent on maternity leaves of absence shall not count toward salary guide placement experience, sick leave accumulation, etc.
Any employee may apply for a leave in the case of adoption by such employee of a child four (4) years of age or younger under the same terms as the maternity or child care leave above; except that the sixty (60) day notice in 6:8.3 hereinabove shall be an intent notice, and actual notice shall be presented when the employee has notice of the actual adoption. If the child is more than four (4) years of age, such leave may be granted at the sole discretion of the Board. Adoption leaves shall begin upon the employee’s receiving de facto custody of the infant child, or earlier if necessary to fulfill the requirements for the adoption.
Child rearing leave without pay will be granted upon Board approval under the following procedures:
All initial applications for child rearing leave shall be made in writing to the Superintendent.
Such written requests shall specify the date when the employee wishes to begin or end leave. Under normal conditions, the beginning and end of such leave shall be on a semester basis. However, in emergency situations, leaves could be granted under other arrangements.

7:7 Insurance Coverage Waiver Plan: This benefit shall include the following provisions:
Each year, the Board shall provide appropriate forms to all association members covered by insurance. Said form will contain a final return date.
Employees who elect to waive coverage pursuant to Article VII, item 7.1 shall be entitled to receive 50% of the cost of the whichever plan type employee is receiving as of the execution of this agreement. Payment of monies shall be made in two equal payments to occur at the mid-point and at the end of a given contractual year.
Employees must waive such insurance for a full year to be eligible for said payment.
Employees who have no other comprehensive insurance shall not be permitted to waive coverage.
Employees who have initially waived coverage by the District to re-enroll in the District’s plan shall be covered by the District at the next available enrollment period without lapse in coverage. It shall be the employee’s obligation to notify the District’s Business Administrator of the pending loss in coverage due to a change in status relative to availability of comprehensive insurance coverage.
Should the employment status of such employee change, there shall be a pro-rata payment based upon the time elapsed in the plan. Should such separation of employment be due to death, his/her estate shall receive such pro-rata payment.
