School Board OK’s ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ With Teachers’ Union
New language included in the contract with the Brecksville Education Association that allows for “flexible schedule provisions.”
Both the Brecksville teachers union and the school board understand that “from time to time” certain circumstances come up where teachers need to adjust their starting and ending times.
On Monday night, the Brecksville-Broadview Board of Education approved a measure to include language that makes that official.
The measure points out that sometimes it’s necessary to change the start and end times of teachers. It goes on to note that when those instances arise, “upon the mutual agreement between the teacher and the building administrator” the times may be adjusted.
However, the amended Negotiated Agreement notes that the arrangement must still conform with an eight-hour workday.
In August, the district and the teachers' union agreed to a new contract.
