Staffing & Workload

Coverage and Supervision Memo 2021-22


This memorandum issued by the Secondary Teaching Office provides further direction, beyond what is in the Collective Agreement and Workload Accord, on how Coverages and Supervisions can be assigned, and on how School Staffing Committees can ensure that your school’s Schedule of Availability for Coverage and Supervision provides predictability and equitable distribution to these assignments. Please contact your Executive Officer with any questions.

Please Note: this Memo does not include reference to the three 50 minute blocks agreed to with the Board for the purposes of coverage during the extended period Covid schedule this year (to replace “half periods” during that revised daily schedule), but that agreement was included in the applicable 2021-22 Secondary Operational Guidelines, and all Principals were informed of that amended provision directly by Employee Services.
