23-6. Assigned Teachers
Assigned teachers are certified teachers employed on a temporary or part-time basis and not on a tenure track.
23-6.1. Temporarily Assigned Teacher.
A temporarily assigned teacher (“TAT”) is a certified teacher who is employed on a full-time temporary basis to provide class coverage when the teacher appointed to a position is on a leave of absence. When a TAT is assigned to a position for a teacher on leave and that position becomes vacant, the TAT shall be appointed to such position within ten days of the date on which the position became a vacancy. A TAT who is rated and subsequently appointed to the position in which they were rated will have the rating count towards the purpose of attaining tenure, provided that he or she while serving as a TAT satisfied the requirement of working a school term of full-time service in such position.
23-6.2. Cadre Substitute.
A Cadre substitute is a certified teacher who is employed on a school-year basis and who is assigned to work only on student attendance days. A principal may permit a Cadre substitute to work on professional development and report card pick-up days, provided that the local school pays for the cost of such service.
23-6.3. Day-to-Day Substitute.
A day-to-day substitute is a teacher who is either a certified teacher or a teacher certified to substitute teach and who is employed in accordance with the Illinois State Board of Education Rules and Regulations. Day-to-day substitutes are employed on a temporary daily basis to provide class coverage when the teacher assigned or appointed to a position is absent. Day-to-day substitutes are employees who have no guarantee of continued employment.
23-6.4. Part-Time Teachers.
A part-time teacher is a certified teacher who is assigned to work less than the full-time schedule worked by school-based appointed teachers. The BOARD may utilize part-time teachers, including teachers on leave. The salary and benefits of such teachers under this Agreement shall be prorated to correspond to the length of the part-time assignment (e.g., a teacher assigned to half-time shall have his or her salary and benefits prorated by .5). Such part-time teachers shall maintain benefits and seniority accrued through their assignment to a part-time position and shall continue to accrue benefits and seniority thereafter on a prorated basis. The BOARD agrees that the employment and assignment of part-time teachers shall not result in the displacement of any appointed teacher. In addition, the BOARD agrees that part-time teachers will not be used to supplant the assignment of appointed teachers.
23-6.5. Retired Teachers.
The BOARD may employ and assign retired teachers as day-to-day substitutes for no more than one hundred and twenty school days during the school year and shall pay such teachers the rate paid to day-to-day substitutes. The BOARD shall compensate such retired teachers in accordance with Appendix A-1L. Such retired teachers shall not be eligible for any other benefits provided to bargaining unit employees under this Agreement. The BOARD agrees that the employment and assignment of retired teachers shall not result in the displacement of any appointed or assigned teacher.
23-6.6. Provisional Cadre Substitutes.
A provisional cadre substitute is a teacher with day-to-day substitute teacher credentials who is employed on a school year basis and who is assigned to work only on student attendance days. A principal may permit a Provisional Cadre Substitute Teacher to work on professional development and report card pick-up days, provided that the local school pays for the cost of such services. A provisional cadre substitute who obtains a full teacher licensure shall be reclassified as a Cadre substitute teacher.
