The following is a guideline to timelines to submit requests and paperwork:
To apply for the sick bank:
If you wish to join the Sick Bank, you must apply by November 1st of the current school year.
To apply for tuition reimbursement:
Tuition reimbursement is approved on a first come, first serve basis. Each request should be completed and turned into Central office prior to the start of the course you are taking.
To apply for supplementary longevity payment:
The teacher/nurse must give written notice of his/her intent to access this supplementary longevity payment to the Superintendent or his/her designee prior to the December 1 preceding the contract year in which the teacher desires to begin receiving this benefit. For example – if you wish to receive the first supplementary longevity payment during the 2015-16 school year, you would have to submit the request prior to December 1, 2014. You would then get the first payment of $2000 during the 2015-16 school year, the second payment of $3000 during the 2016-17 school year, and the third payment of $3000 during the 2017-18 school year.
Please note: Once the three (3) year period for this supplementary longevity payment has been completed, the supplementary longevity payment will terminate and the teacher/nurse will revert to the salary level that she/he would otherwise be at under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement that is then in effect, and said teacher/nurse will be ineligible to receive further longevity payments under sections 1 and 2 of this Article during the remainder of the time she or he is employed in Attleboro.
To apply for lateral movement on the payscale:
In order to advance laterally on the salary scale, teachers must give written notice to the Superintendent or designee by the preceding December 1 that the teacher will likely be advancing laterally on the salary scale during the following contract year. Teachers will then provide documentation of the completion of the course work. Lateral movement on the salary schedule will be limited to the first day of the school year and the 91st day.
