This is to clarify that participation in after school events (not including regular scheduled staff meetings) is VOLUNTARY. Teachers cannot be expected to attend events that take place outside of the instructional day.
Teachers may choose to participate, but their attendance cannot be mandated by Principals or Administration. Coaching, literacy events, concerts etc. are all voluntary.
This was discussed with the Board at our recent Liaison Meeting. The Board agreed with this understanding.
