JOB SHARING IN CERTIFIED STAFF POSITIONS

Job-sharing means that two teachers share one full-time teaching position, and decide for themselves how much time that each teacher will devote to the job.  Both teachers might be on the job at the same time, or one teacher might be there at one time and the other at another.

Each teacher receives one-half the base salary.  Benefits and credit for teaching experience will be the same as for half-time teachers.  Decisions concerning supplemental positions, if any, will be made on an individual basis.

Teachers who want to share a job will submit a proposal to their principals.

Submitted proposals must include precise statements concerning:

·         The prior relationship of the partners

·         The division of tasks between the partners

·         Time scheduling

·         Provisions for communication between the partners

·         Provisions for communication between the partners and the rest of the staff

·         Benefits to pupils

·         Benefits to the partners

·         Benefits to the school system

 

The principals will evaluate and forward the proposal to the associate superintendent of school services for approval.

The associate superintendent of school services will evaluate and forward the proposal to the human resources director for final disposition.

Proposals will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

·         Advantages and disadvantages to pupils

·         Advantages and disadvantages to the teachers involved

·         Advantages and disadvantages to the school system

·         Estimated probability of success

·         Other administrative concerns

 

The job-sharing plan specified above is to be considered an experimental project. Great flexibility will be maintained in the type of proposals approved and in the individual conditions attached to such approval.  Every effort will be made to assure that all teachers involved are accorded equitable treatment.
