Have you been wondering what the Flex Day at the beginning of next school year is all about?
Well here goes....
The Flex Day and it's use are defined in the contract Article II.2.B.7 which states:
7. One (1) flex day will be available to teachers each school year. A flex day is defined as a teacher work day immediately preceding the first teacher pre-school work day. Flex days shall be used for planning and classroom preparation. A teacher may elect to work a flex day and then take one of the other teacher workdays off during the school year, including the last post-school day. Teachers must notify principals in advance as much as possible if a flex day will be utilized during any given school year.
To clarify further, the flex day will be Thursday, August 7. You do not have to use the flex day. You can begin your school year on Friday, August 8. MCEA negotiated this so that elementary teachers who tend to need more time at the beginning of the year to set up classrooms could have it and middle and secondary teachers could use the time at the end of the year when they tended to need it more. If you work the flex day in August, you will need to notify your principal of the workday that you will not come in. There is no time specifically stated for this, but the expectation is that you will be professional and give them the information in a timely fashion.
