Surplus Staffing: Surplus Units 2016

Key Points:

This information outlines action to be taken before the end of the 2015 school year if the school will have a surplus staffing and/or surplus salary unit situation for 2016.  

Note that, while all permanent teachers identified as surplus have access to the staff surplus options in the Primary Teachers Collective Agreement, the Ministry of Education is responsible only for the costs of the surplus as indicated on the staffing entitlement notice received by the school in September for the following school year.  The cost of staff surplus additional to that identified by the Ministry resourcing division is a cost to the Board of Trustees.
