The Negotiated Contract is between the Board of Education and PGCEA. Members of the bargaining unit (teacher/educators) are considered third party beneficiaries.
As such, neither administrators nor teachers have any authority to waive or ignore a provision contained therein.
If you are requested to waive or are asked to not enforce a provision of the Contract, you should decline and direct the requesting party to PGCEA.
Collaborative Planning cannot be used to count towards the minimum amount of daily individual planning required under the contract.
If you need assistance with your rights under the Negotiated Agreement, please contact your Uniserv Director.
