HOUSE CONCURRENT

RESOLUTION

 

 

Urging the Hawaii State Teachers Association and the Board of Education to implement compensation for ancillary activities for teachers in the next collective bargaining agreement.

 

 

 


     WHEREAS, Department of Education teachers often perform hundreds of hours of ancillary activities for their students and classrooms outside of school hours; and

 

     WHEREAS, ancillary activities are those activities that are routinely performed in support of, and are a necessary component of, classroom teaching, including drafting lesson plans, preparing for class, gathering materials, researching teaching activities, grading student work, and conducting teacher evaluations; and

 

     WHEREAS, the current collective bargaining agreement between the Hawaii State Teachers Association and the Board of Education does not authorize any form of compensation for the hours teachers spend on ancillary activities; and

 

     WHEREAS, compensating teachers for ancillary activities would help to recognize the hours teachers spend on ancillary activities and provide fair compensation for the extra hours teachers must work; now, therefore,

 

     BE IT RESOLVED by the House of Representatives of the Twenty-eighth Legislature of the State of Hawaii, Regular Session of 2015, the Senate concurring, that the Hawaii State Teachers Association and the Board of Education are urged to implement compensation for ancillary activities for teachers in the next collective bargaining agreement; and

 

     BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this Concurrent Resolution be transmitted to the Governor, the President of the Hawaii State Teachers Association, the Chairperson of the Board of Education, and the Superintendent of Education.
