SPRING/SUMMER STAFFING FOR 2016/2017

Tentative Dates:

June 14                 External Contract & LTO Posting Opens

June 20                 External Contract Posting Closes (4:30pm)

June 26-28            Central Placement of Contracts/LTOs

August 14              Remaining LTOs Posted

 

Please read the following carefully:

The June 14th posting will consist of all contract positions as well as LTOs of significance (Full year/full time LTO’s as well as LTO’s of 0.6 FTE or greater that are both full and partial school year) and will be posted only to those who are currently on the LTO List.

 
Principals will interview for Specialty Contract & Specialty LTO positions (French Immersion & Congregated Spec Ed). The Contracts and Full Year/Full Time LTOs that are not specialty positions will be centrally placed by Human Resources, based on Seniority of applicants from the LTO list in accordance with Regulation 274.

 
Similar to last year, OTs will be able to provide preference to the board. A short survey will be emailed to your waterworks email account (from Brian Driver).  Please have this survey filled out by the closing date of the LTO postings (June 20th).

 
Please note that there is a possibility of an OT on the LTO list being successful to an LTO specialty position and, being eligible for a contract they have also applied to. The Board will not stand in the way of someone being successful to a contract position, and therefore if an Occasional Teacher from the LTO list accepts a full year LTO Specialty position and also applies to Contract postings, and based on seniority is successful to a contract position they will allow the Occasional Teacher to abandon the LTO position for the contract. Should this happen, they will re-post the specialty LTO position in a subsequent posting in August .

 
In the event the first posting does not deplete the LTO list the second postings will be open to both LTO List and OT Roster Occasional Teachers with the understanding that the Occasional Teachers on the LTO List will receive preference to the position in accordance with Regulation 274. With the exception of the Specialty Positions it is the expectation that qualified
applicants will accept a position for which they have applied to. Once an Occasional Teacher has accepted a Long Term Assignment they may not abandon one Long Term Occasional assignment for another, even if it results in an increase in FTE.
