Article 26 - Institution Teachers
§26.1 School Calendars
Labor/management committees will discuss school calendars for institution teachers including their duration and their starting and ending dates.
§26.3 Special Holidays
Employees serving as institution teachers at times other than during the normal 10-month school year shall not lose pay for days which have been declared by the State, as employer, to be special holidays provided such employees were scheduled to work on such days.
Effective April 1, 1995, the State agrees to provide each institution teacher a maximum of three days of leave with pay during each school year for religious observance, teacher conferences, professional meetings, extraordinary or emergency absences or other personal use. Such leave shall be approved on request insofar as it would not interfere with the proper conduct of governmental functions. Employees on leave as hereinabove provided shall not be required to make up such time off by adjustments in their daily or weekly work schedules. Institution teachers shall not be allowed any other time off with pay for such purposes except as provided by Section 12.15.
