Revised 2024-25 LTO Staffing Rules

2024-25 LTO Staffing Rules (Revised Apr 10_24)

Agreement with the Process

Our feedback as a Union was to support this process as it benefits our members by not having to submit dozens of covers/resumes/answers to each job postings, nor face the uncertainty of getting an interview, the scheduling/completion of interviews for each different job, and the decision to accept one position while awaiting results of other interviews. The reorganization that happened this past Fall devastatingly affected over 70 OTs in 1.0 FTE LTOs. This pool process also tries to smooth out the miscalculations of providing too many contracts and having redundant contract teachers bumping OTs from those 70 LTOs.

Hiring Criteria

The Board sets the criteria for who they wish to hire. The listed criteria is seeking to ensure the candidates have OCDSB experience in a successful LTO which includes a reporting period.  Being uncertain of the volume of applicants, as this is a pilot program, the criteria has been tweaked slightly to 3 months but is still weighted on the prexperience within our Board, which is fair.
