Part IV, Section L, is the long-standing teacher contract provision for meaningful faculty involvement, and its key points are:
Each member of the faculty should have the opportunity to answer one question: What do you think are the collaborative planning needs of this faculty?
By contract, “it is the responsibility of the administration and learning team to digest the faculty involvement and present a year-long comprehensive plan to the staff …” The learning team should make certain the comprehensive plan for the school’s 12 hours provides for engaging all teachers in meaningful conversations.
If teachers have further questions about collaborative planning, they should contact an MTEA staff member at 414-259-1990. If principals have questions, they should contact the MPS Labor Relations Department at 475-8280.
