17. Memorandum of Understanding - Retirement Incentive Creditable Earnings; Overload Assignments - (Roll Call)
For staff who intend to retire with the 6% incentive the district will exclude any overloads done from the base salary calculation in the year prior to the first notice year.  This is because we cannot guarantee an overload for all 4 years.  It reduces the base salary obligation for the district but allows the person to do the overload.
Attachments: (1)
17.a. RECOMMENDED MOTION: That the Board of Education approve the Memorandum of Understanding - Retirement Incentive Creditable Earnings; Overload Assignments.
18. Memorandum of Understanding - Staff Development Teaching - (Roll Call)
Regarding Article 8 section G of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Teachers have claimed the current language in the contract requires the District to pay an hourly rate for presenting to colleagues during staff development days.  This has not been past practice but to clarify we have developed guidelines on what would qualify for the hourly rate.
