The goal is to ensure that there are as few interruptions as possible for parents and Whanau. By the end of 2020, the Ridgway School will have put only 3 semesters of teachers in a few days; Sometimes the school uses discharge means to teach in the classrooms, which allows teachers to perform different planning or professional learning activities. It is not possible to make available to every teacher a means of discharge at the same time and, even if that were the case, the cost would be prohibitive. For example, a teacher, currently in stage 8 Q1 max (59,621 USD), who will be on the new stage from 1 July 2019 (62,000 USD) and will move to a new stage 7 (68,000 USD) in July 2020 and a new stage 8 (75,190 USD) in July 2021. We only used one Accord day in 2019. Other teachers Only the days we took extended our school year or, in other words, were caught up at the end of the year. In accordance with Annex 21 cl.4 (1) of the Education and Training Act 2020 (link leaving this page), the Minister of Education may allow committees to be open for less than half a day than usual. See the letter from the Minister of National Education authorizing the reduction of half-days for schools and cure during the aforementioned periods. It should be noted that teachers always work independently during school holidays, but they do so when it suits them and usually in their own home. Parents should not consider that, not seeing teachers at school, they did not do any work during the holidays! In the recent collective bargaining on the collective agreement for primary school teachers, the collective agreement for primary school heads, the collective agreement for teachers in regional education and the collective agreement for regional school heads, it was agreed that each head teacher or teacher is entitled to a maximum of 8 days of teaching. . .
