Years of Experience / 97th Day Rule Step 1, Step 2 

There has been some confusion regarding grid movement, QUECO 5 updates, retro pay in LTO assignments.

Each year of experience is credited on the 97th day of teaching. 188 days equals one year teaching.These 188 days may be comprised of all LTOs taught and all daily OT work since January 1, 2013. Daily OT work before this date does not count for experience. That is why, sometimes your days worked , as mentioned on the roster, may not be the same as the days worked to calculate years of experience.

If QUECO 5 evaluation is submitted at the beginning of the assignment, then the OT will be placed in the proper category  A 3 or A 4. If not, the OT will be placed in A 1 until proper paper work is submitted.

If .QUECO 5 is upgraded during the LTO ,it will only be recognized on the 97th day for category change with no retro pay involved. If however the OT submits QUECO 5 before the 97th day and it is the first placement, retro pay should be given to the OT.

A change in daily rate from Step 1 to Step 2  becomes effective on the 97th of the school year.

Have you registered with OECTA and sent your personal email to them so that you may receive all E blasts regarding Collective Bargaining Updates ?
