Applying to LTO Positions

Applying for Positions

It is very important that you apply to LTOs through the internal process. If you do not apply through the internal process, you may be waiving your rights as an employee of the WRDSB. As such, your application might be overlooked.

When applying to LTOs through ApplytoEducation click on “Occasional Employees” and “View Openings.”

Hiring Practices

Regulation 274 is back in effect.

As we are currently still in local bargaining with WRDSB, hiring practices remain as stated in the current collective agreement.  Once new language is negotiated, we will update this page.  

Seniority

Your start date as an Occasional Teacher with the WRDSB determines your seniority.

If two or more teachers have the same seniority, ranking among them shall be based on the number of full days of teaching in schools of the board. This includes daily and LTO work.

If two or more teachers have the same ranking under paragraph 2, ranking among them shall be based on the number of years of experience teaching.

If two or more teachers have the same ranking under paragraph 3, ranking among them shall be determined by drawing lots, witnessed by the president of the teachers’ bargaining unit or a person designated in writing by the president.

Rights of Unsuccessful Candidates

If following an interview a teacher is not placed on the long-term occasional teachers’ list or appointed or assigned to a long-term assignment or permanent position the teacher may request feedback on

  • his or her performance during the interview;
  • measures he or she could take to enhance his or her professional qualifications; and
  • other ways to improve his or her chance of being successful in a similar interview in the future.
