ARTICLE III

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

DEFINITION:

A. “Grievance” shall mean a claim by a supervisor that there has been misinterpretation, misapplication or a violation of board policy, the Agreement, or an administrative decision affecting his/her terms and conditions of employment. A grievance to be considered under this procedure must be initiated by the supervisor within thirty (30) calendar days of the time a supervisor knew or should have known of its occurrence.

B. 1. It is agreed by both parties that these proceedings will be as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any level of this procedure.

2. Failure at any step of this procedure to communicate the decision on a grievance within the specified time limits shall permit the aggrieved employee 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 limits shall be deemed to be acceptance of the decision rendered at that step.

3. It is understood that supervisors 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.

4. Since it is important that grievances be processed as rapidly as possible, the number of days indicated at each level should be considered as a maximum and every effort should be made to expedite the process.



C. Level One

Any supervisor who has a grievance shall discuss it first with the Director of Curriculum in an attempt to resolve the matter informally at that level. If the Director of Curriculum believes the grievance is not within his/her sphere of authority, he/she can redirect the grievance to the principal.
      Level Two

If, as a result of the discussion, the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of the supervisor within fourteen (14) calendar days, he/she may set forth his/her grievance in writing to his/her principal on the grievance forms provided. Within fourteen (14) calendar days, after notification as to the administrative decision, the supervisor must reduce his/her grievance to writing and the written grievance must be signed by an Association official before submission. The written grievance shall specify the following:

1. the nature of the grievance;

2. the specific term or provision of this Agreement or Board policy alleged to have been misinterpreted, misapplied or violated;

3. the remedy sought.

The Director of Curriculum and/or the principal, within seven (7) calendar days of the receipt of the written grievance, must schedule a review meeting to discuss the pertinent facts surrounding the grievance. A written decision must be made by the Director of Curriculum or principal within fourteen (14) calendar days subsequent to this review meeting.

Level Three

The supervisor, no later than fourteen (14) calendar days after receipt of the principal’s decision, may appeal the decision to the Superintendent of Schools. The appeal to the Superintendent must be made in writing reciting the matter submitted to the principal as specified above and his/her dissatisfaction with decisions previously rendered. The Superintendent shall attempt to resolve the matter as quickly as possible and will respond within fourteen (14) calendar days. The Superintendent shall communicate his decision in writing with reasons to the employee and the principal.

Level Four

If the grievance is not resolved to the supervisor’s satisfaction, he/she, no later than fourteen (14) calendar days after receipt of the Superintendent’s decision, may request a review by the Board of Education. The request shall be submitted in writing through the Superintendent of Schools who shall attach all related papers and forward the request within fourteen (14) calendar days to the Board of Education. The Board shall review the grievance and shall, at the option of the Board or upon request of the supervisor, hold a hearing with the supervisor and render a decision in writing with reasons within thirty-five (35) calendar days of receipt of the grievance by the Board Secretary.

If both parties agree that the grievance is lawfully and contractually arbitrable, the matter may go directly to arbitration at the Board’s option from the Superintendent’s level.

Level Five

If the decision of the board does not resolve the grievance to the satisfaction of the supervisor and the supervisor wishes review by a third party, and if the matter pertains to this Agreement between the Board and the Association, he/she shall so notify the Board through the Superintendent within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the Board’s decision. A supervisor, in order to process his/her grievance beyond Level Four, must have his/her request for such action accompanied by the written recommendation for such action by the Association.

No claim by a supervisor shall constitute a grievable matter beyond Level Four or be processed beyond Level Four if it pertains to (a) any matter for which a detailed method of review is prescribed by law, (b) any rules or regulations of the State Commissioner of Education, but not to the violation, interpretation, or application of such a rule or regulation, (c) any by-law of the Board of Education pertaining to its internal operation, or (d) any matter which according to law is beyond the scope of Board authority.

D. Procedure for Securing the Services of an Arbitrator
          1. A request will be made to the Public Employment Relations Commission to submit a roster of persons qualified to function as an arbitrator in the dispute in question and the Commission’s procedures will govern.
          2. The arbitrator shall limit himself to the issues submitted to him and shall consider nothing else. He can add nothing to, nor subtract anything from the Agreement between the parties. The recommendations of the arbitrator shall be advisory. Only the Board and the aggrieved and his/her representatives shall be given copies of the arbitrator’s report of findings, reasons and recommendations. The parties will share equally the costs of the arbitrator and will individually be responsible for all other costs.



E. Rights of Supervisors to Representation
          Any aggrieved person must be represented by a member of the Association at Level Two and beyond.

F. Miscellaneous
          1. Forms pertaining to the filing of grievances shall be prepared by the Superintendent or his designee after consultation with the Association.
          2. When it is determined by the W.H.R.S.A. that a court appeal shall be undertaken following an arbitrator’s decision, the following conditions shall prevail. Each party will be responsible for paying its own costs.

D. The Association shall have the right to be present whenever any employee under this contract is required to appear before the Superintendent, any administrator, Board of Education or committee on any matter that might adversely affect the status of the employee to protect the interests, not only of the individual involved, but also of the organization as the bargaining representative exclusively recognized.

          A. This position is a twelve month obligation covering a period of two hundred (200) days from the opening day of school up to and including the last day of June plus five (5) additional pensionable days during the months of July and August. It is anticipated that end of the year activities that can be conducted in June will continue to be completed in that period as part of department supervisor’s regular responsibilities.

          B. Supervisors will be considered twelve (12) month employees and will be compensated in twenty-four (24) equal payments of their pensionable salary. Summer work involves work completed on the school site between July 1 and opening day for the teaching staff. During July and August, the time spent in staff development programs will be reimbursed at the supervisory per diem rate. Supervisors will be notified in writing of such days by the Superintendent and Director of Curriculum by June 1st. Additional days beyond paid summer days may be compensated with compensatory time.
              Any additional duties beyond the five (5) pensionable days performed during the months of July and August, as part of the responsibilities of the supervisory position, will be reimbursed at the employee’s per diem rate.

          E. Department supervisors will be compensated for a class coverage when assigned to cover one class during a given day, at the prescribed teacher’s rate. A second class coverage or more during a given day will not be compensated. However, a department supervisor should be assigned to more than one class coverage in a given day except in an emergency situation. Every effort should be made to avoid assigning a department supervisor to multiple coverages. Department supervisors should not be assigned to any long term multiple coverages. In the unavoidable event that multiple long term coverages in excess of five days are necessary, the department supervisor will be compensated for all coverages, at the prescribed rate for teachers.

          F. Although they will not be assigned to other duties commonly assigned to teachers, such as study halls, hall duty, bathroom duty, library duty, etc., department supervisors will be assigned to supervise assigned areas during the lunch period. Supervisors will accrue 6.5 compensatory days for performing this duty. Of the 6.5 days, 1.5 shall be used only after graduation and 3 of the remaining 5 on a day on which their supervisor’s assigned class does not meet, unless approved by the Superintendent.
            The administration of standardized testing, including, but not limited to, the GEPA, HSPA, SAT I, SAT II, ACT, or AP shall be understood not to be the responsibility of any curricular supervisor without compensation equal to the additional department stipend.
