Hmmm, I wonder what this all means.
220.127.116.11 For schools at which a collective bargaining agreement governs its employees, a further agreement between and among the district or charter school, the collective bargaining unit, and the Department addressing those subjects, if any, that may inhibit the schools’ successful implementation of its model, including but not limited to:
18.104.22.168.1 Limitations on hiring, reassigning and transferring covered employees into and out of the Partnership Zone school, such as seniority limitations;
22.214.171.124.2 The methodology for determining which teachers will be transferred or reassigned as part of the model;
126.96.36.199.3 Work rules relating to the educational calendar and scheduling of instructional time and non-instructional time,
188.8.131.52.4 Instructional reform;
184.108.40.206.5 Professional development requirements and other specialized training;
220.127.116.11.6 Retention and employment incentives, including performance incentives for effective teachers and principals; and
18.104.22.168.7 Any other subject required by these regulations to be addressed in the Partnership Zone school’s selected model.
22.214.171.124 In the event the parties are not able to reach the agreement required by 126.96.36.199 within seventy-five (75) days of notice as a Partnership Zone school, each party shall present its last best offer on the areas of disagreement along with a draft agreement, to the Secretary of the Department, who shall accept one of the last best offers, or reject all of them. Should the Secretary reject all offers, the parties shall have thirty (30) days to confer and present the Secretary revised offers for re-consideration pursuant to this section.
