So, you discover you’ve reached 1200 hours of assigned duties in May. What next? Can you pack your bags and head to the lake?

There are limits in the collective agreement regarding how much work can be assigned to teachers. Check this session out to find out what counts for instruction, what is assignable and what are your "professional duties". Find out how to use the calculator to see how close you are to the maximums.
