Professional staff members will be expected to assume reasonable duties over and above their regular
teaching responsibilities. Activities and services that make minor demands on the teacher's time
shall be part of each teacher's basic assignment. Schedules of supervision, sponsorships and
activities will be assembled by the building principals. Administrators will strive to equalize those
duties among teachers.
Extra duty assignments which make major demands on a teacher's time shall be compensated in
accordance with an extra-duty allowance salary schedule established annually by the Board. Extra
duties shall be defined as those duties and responsibilities in conjunction with but not a part of the
regular teaching assignment, but considered as a part of the teaching act. These duties are not
considered subject to the provisions of the Teacher Tenure Act. Faculty members to be appointed
to extra-duty positions will be recommended by the superintendent and approved by the Board.
Appointees will be issued a contract for the terms of their extra-duty employment stating the
particular assignment, its duration and the compensation to be paid. Professional staff members will
be paid stipends that are commensurate with the demands of their specific extra-duty assignments.
Most stipends will be paid on an annual or seasonal basis, although certain assignments not related
to the teaching act, performed at irregular or infrequent intervals, may be paid at an hourly rate.
