1000.02107 – Preparation Time
To establish a negotiable change in teachers’ work hours resulting from a non-negotiable decision, charge must allege facts establishing an actual impact on work hours, either by showing an increase in instructional time or a decrease in preparation time that has the effect of lengthening the workday or shortening existing duty-free time. Charge failed to allege facts establishing that teachers’ existing preparation time was insufficient for them to create new examinations that might be required as a result of district’s policy requiring return of student examinations upon parent request.
