  • 2. Certification: Becoming Qualified
    • Education Act § 198
    • No person shall be engaged, appointed, employed or retained as a teacher or principal in any school unless that person possesses a valid certificate of qualification issued pursuant to the regulations.*
      • * The Teacher Certification and Classification Regulations (Chapter E-0.1 Reg. 2, as amended)
  • 3. Certification: Becoming Qualified
    • Certification in Saskatchewan
      • see The Teacher Certification and Classification Regulations (Chapter E-0.1 Reg. 2, as amended)
    • Elsewhere in Canada
    • Each province has its own qualifications that have to be met before teachers can be certified
    • Although these qualifications are generally similar from province to province, certification in one province doesn’t guarantee parallel certification in another.
  • 4. http://www.ctf-fce.ca/en/teaching/teaching.htm#r

  • 11. Contracts (Saskatchewan)
    • There are three types:
    • 1. Temporary contract:
      • for more than twenty days but less than one year;
      • the offer, acceptance and confirmation must state the starting and ending dates
    • 2. Replacement contract:
      • for one complete academic year;
      • may be full-time or part-time;
      • to replace a teacher on a board approved leave;
      • the offer, acceptance and confirmation must state the starting and ending dates;
      • if the offer is extended beyond one year, the replacement teacher has first right of refusal. If the replacement teacher accepts the extension, the contract is deemed to be an “Indefinite” contract.
    • 3. Indefinite or continuing contract: may be full or part-time.
      • Indefinite contracts have a starting date, but do not have a termination date.
  • 12. Offer/Acceptance/Confirmation

        • (i) if sent by ordinary mail or delivered personally, is the date of receipt by the addressee;
        • (ii) if sent by registered mail or by fax or other electronic transmission, is the date it is sent
    • (2) Subject to subsections (3) and (12), a teacher is deemed to have entered into a contract of employment with a board . . . where the board . . . makes an offer . . . and the teacher accepts the offer on or before the fourth day following the date of the offer.
    • (3) When accepting the offer, the teacher shall state the class and number of the valid certificate of qualification, issued pursuant to the regulations, then held by him or her.
    • (12) For the purposes of this Act, the offer, acceptance and notice of confirmation mentioned in this section constitute a contract of employment of a teacher by the board of education . . . .

    • Would you be willing to bet that Canada Post would deliver a letter, by regular mail, in under four days? Would you bet your job on it?
    Remember, in this context, weekends don’t count and Canada Post does not deliver regular mail on weekends.
  • 18. Contract Cautions
    • Do not resign a position until you have been offered a contract with a new employer, in writing, and have accepted, in writing.
    • Do not sign a contract in which the amount of time assigned to you may be varied from semester to semester or year to year. Any such amendment must be by mutual consent at the time the change is proposed.
    • Do not sign a contract which specifies any condition, such as signing a mutual agreement to terminate the contract, or providing for supervision duties or extra-curricular activities. Contact the STF.
    • Do not sign a contract immediately when under pressure. You are entitled to four days to respond under the Education Act . Contact the STF if you are uncertain about the appropriateness of a contract.
    • Do not sign an amendment to a contract without contacting the STF to determine how the amendment may affect your pension status or other benefits, and to clarify your legal rights.
    • Do not resign for reasons of illness or pregnancy. Consult the STF.
  • 19. Collective Agreements: The Conditions of Employment
    • a collective agreement is a legal agreement between a group of workers and their employer
    • bargaining units must meet criteria defined by provincial laws
    • representatives of the workers group are selected by the membership to negotiate on their behalf
    • representatives of employers are selected to represent employer interests
  • 20. Rules for Teachers (1872)
    • 1. Teachers each day will fill lamps, clean chimneys.
    • 2. Each teacher will bring a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the day's session.
    • 3. Make your pens carefully. You may whittle nibs to the individual taste of the pupils.
    • 4. Men teachers may take one evening a week for courting purposes, or two evenings a week if they go to church regularly.
    • 5. After ten hours in school, the teachers may spend the remaining time reading the Bible or other good books.
    • 6. Women teachers who marry or engage in unseemly behaviour will be dismissed.
    • 7. Every teacher should lay aside from each pay a goodly sum for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden on society.
    • 8. Any teacher who smokes, uses liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls, or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intention, integrity and honesty.
    • 9. The teacher who performs his labour faithfully and without fault for five years will be given an increase of twenty-five cents per week in his pay, providing the Board of Education approves.
  • 21. A Public Relations Problem
