The work day shall require teachers to spend a total of one hour in combination before and after school.  Determination of the reporting time prior to the start of the school day, and the leaving time following the end of the school day, shall be made yearly by the Superintendent in consultation with the building principals.  "Day" is defined as one work day regardless of full-time or part-time status of an employee.


Certificated employees are to be in their assigned school building during the work day.  Advance approval to be absent from the school building must be obtained from the principal whenever the certificated employees must leave the school building during the work day.


The building principal is authorized to make changes in the work day in order to facilitate the education program. Variations from, or extensions of, the work day for individual building activities such as faculty meetings, etc., shall be the responsibility of the building principals.


The work day outlined in this policy is a minimum work day.  Nothing in this policy prohibits certificated employees from working additional hours outside the work day.


The requirements stated in the Negotiated Contract between employees in that certified collective bargaining unit and the board regarding work day of such employees shall be followed.
