Teachers shall not be required to attend meetings outside of their regularly assigned workday for which there is no additional compensation, except for induction hours, two (2) evening meetings per year and, provided there is joint agreement by the Principal, the Building Representative, and the President of the Home & School Association, or in the absence of a Home & School Association by the Principal and Building Representative, a third evening meeting per year. Such an agreement must be in writing and signed by the three parties referenced herein. Nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit employees from volunteering to perform duties outside their regularly assigned workday, which services shall not result in any additional compensation.
If an additional night meeting beyond the three (3) meetings referenced above is desired by a school community, the following process will be followed. The issue will be discussed and a plan developed collaboratively by the Principal, the Building Committee, the Home and School President and/or parent members of the School Council.
An additional night meeting may be scheduled through a shortened work day and that day cannot exceed the contractual work day. If such a meeting is scheduled, it requires the signature of the Principal, the Building Committee and the Home and School President.
