Remember that as part of the Bill 115 Remedy, you may have a Paid Day Off.

All permanent teachers employed during the 2016/2017 school year and are actively teaching in 2017/2018 or 2018/2019 are entitled to one paid day off work.  This day can be taken during EITHER the 2017/2018 or 2018/2019 school year.

The Board has provided a “drop-down” in Smartfind for “Remedy Day”.  To take your “Remedy Day” just select this option and proceed as normal with Smartfind.  Remember, it helps our Occasional Teacher Brothers and Sisters if the Remedy Day is taken during a normal working day requiring coverage. 

 If you did not take your remedy day last school year, please take it this year.  You should be able to submit the day in Smartfind now.

Also as part of theExtension Agreement, the following salary changes. 

 Permanent increases on salary, wages and responsibility allowance

    • September 1, 2018:  1.0%
