 1   will not discriminate against any professional employee by reason of his or her membership or non-

 5   and legitimate activities of Association, including those defined in Act 195.

 6           2.2    Legal Rights: Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to deny, limit, or restrict any

13   her own choosing, including legal counsel, or a representative of the Association. By selecting such

14   representative such professional employee shall be deemed to have appointed such representative his

15   or her agent for conducting such proceedings, and shall be deemed to be bound by the acts and

16   agreement of such agent unless and until he or she shall revoke or specifically modify such agency. In

17   the event any interview or meeting is requested by any authorized representative of District, and such

18   interview or meeting is not required by law, such representative of District may decline to meet with the

19   professional employee if such representation is insisted upon by the professional employee.

 2   inspection under this paragraph.

 3           2.5    Derogatory Material in File: A professional employee shall be informed of any

 4   derogatory material hereafter placed in his or her personnel file by being handed a photocopy of the

 5   same upon signing a receipt therefore, or by having a photocopy mailed to him or her by any form of

 6   first class mail requiring him or her to receipt for the item. A professional employee may present a

 7   written answer or explanation to such derogatory material within thirty (30) days of actual receipt by him

 8   or her of the aforesaid copy, which answer or explanation shall be included in his or her personnel file

 9   with the derogatory material. No anonymous communications shall be placed in any personnel file at

10   any time. No derogatory material which is untrue shall be placed in any professional employee's

11   personnel file, and if such untrue material is not removed upon request a professional employee shall

12   have the right to prosecute a grievance to compel removal.

13           2.6 Just Cause Provision: No employee shall be disciplined, reprimanded in writing, reduced

14   in compensation, or discharged without just cause. It is the intention of the parties that this provision

15   shall not be deemed to modify the tenure provisions of the Public School Code.

16           2.7 Professional Employee Evaluation:

17           A.     Evaluation of professional employees shall be done in accordance with the Public

 1           C.     Formal evaluation and rating of employees as provided in the Public School Code shall

 2                  not be deemed to be discipline or a reprimand in writing within the meaning of Section

 3                  2.6

 4           2.8 Faculty Passes: Each professional employee shall be issued a complimentary general

 5   admission pass entitling him or her and one (1) guest to attend any and all school activities. The term

 7   only by the employee. If any employee abuses the use of said pass, such employee shall be subject to

 8   such disciplinary action as may be lawful.

 9           2.9 Verbal Reprimand: When it becomes necessary for an administrator, supervisor,

10   coordinator, or department chairman to reprimand a professional employee, such reprimand shall be

11   administered in a private conference. It will not be administered in front of students unless delay would

12   constitute a danger to the health or well-being of students.

 1                  transfer and shall have such request held in the District's transfer request file.

 2           C.     If said request is denied, the employee shall be so notified in writing and may request a

 3                  meeting with the Superintendent of Schools or his or her duly authorized representative

 4                  to discuss said denial.

 5           D.     The final decision on requested transfers shall remain within the sole discretion of the

 6                  District.

 7           E.     Nothing contained herein shall be construed so as to preclude or limit in any way

 9                  the District in ordering a transfer shall be final and not subject to review under Article X

13   of the same. Said posting shall state the department or grade level in which said vacancy exists.

14           2.13 Reduction in Force: A professional employee who is suspended shall be placed on the

15   District's substitute list. Said employee shall be given preference when the District deems it necessary

16   to hire a substitute within their certification. The procedures utilized by the District for summoning daily

17   substitute shall be utilized in implementation of this paragraph. The employee shall be paid for days

18   worked at his or her per diem rate as of the date of suspension, provided, however, that said employee

19   shall not be entitled to benefits afforded members of the bargaining unit. A suspended employee may

20   waive listing upon the District's substitute list without penalty. The parties agree that said employee

21   shall be included within the bargaining unit for a period of one (1) year from the effective date of

22   suspension. Notice of suspension shall be given an employee sixty (60) days before the effective date

 5   District in writing have been designated as Association Representatives may leave their work during

 6   working hours for the purpose of attending a scheduled grievance hearing, provided that they first

 7   receive permission to perform this Association business from their immediate supervisor. Such

 8   permission shall not be unreasonably withheld, but it shall not be granted at times when it interferes

 9   with the operation of the school system. If such employee's presence is deemed necessary, such

10   denial of permission shall be grounds for a continuance of any scheduled meeting or hearing.

11           3.2 Bulletin Boards: The District shall permit the Association to use one-half of the bulletin

12   board located in each faculty room for the purpose of posting its official notices.

14   District as are authorized each time in advance by the District for meetings of Association members

15   and committee. Association shall make application for such use according to District's regulations

16   applicable to all organizations, and agree to abide by such regulations. Such use shall be at no cost to

17   the Association.

18           3.4 Primary Obligations: The Association hereby agrees that the primary obligation of all

19   professional employees is to teach children. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to permit a

20   professional employee to leave an assigned post until his or her immediate supervisor shall have




                                                          9
 1   arranged for a substitute, nor shall anything herein be construed as to require time off with pay for

 2   Association activities, which subject is covered specifically in other portions of this agreement.

 3             3.5 School Board Meetings: Representatives of the Association may exercise the privilege of

 4   any taxpayer or resident to attend meetings of the School Board irrespective of whether such

 6             3.6 Inter-School Mail Service: The Association shall be allowed to use the inter-school mail

 7   service of the District provided such use does not interfere with regular school mail. All such mailings

 8   shall be in sealed envelopes identified by the name of the Association written in the upper left-hand

 9   corner.

10             3.7 Special Conferences: The President of the Association may confer with representatives of

11   the District upon his or her request. All such requests shall be submitted through the Superintendent of

12   Schools, who may schedule the requested meeting. If such a meeting is scheduled during school

13   hours, the Association’s representative shall receive his or her pay for such period as the meeting

14   requires. The refusal of the Superintendent of Schools to hold such a meeting shall not constitute a

15   grievance, nor shall this clause apply to the grievance procedure hereafter set forth.

16             Representatives of the District may confer with representatives of the Association upon

17   request. All such requests shall be submitted through the President of the Association, who may

18   schedule the requested meeting. If such meeting is scheduled during school hours, the Association's

19   representative shall receive his or her pay for such period as the meeting requires. The refusal of the

20   President of the Association to hold such a meeting shall not constitute a grievance, nor shall this

21   clause apply to the grievance procedure hereafter set forth.

 8                            DISTRICT RESPONSIBILITIES AND PREROGATIVES

 9           4.1 Reserved Items: The Association recognizes that the Board of School Directors of District

10   has been charged by the law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with providing for the education of

11   children enrolled in public schools of District. It further recognizes that the Board of School Directors is

12   required to exercise its discretion in carrying out these responsibilities, and that in exercising this

13   discretion the Board of School Directors must consider many factors, which factors change from time to

14   time. Except as shall have been expressly otherwise agreed upon herein, nothing contained in this

15   agreement shall be deemed to restrict, preclude, or modify any lawful power exercised by the Board of

16   School Directors or to make any exercise of such power the subject of the grievance procedure

17   established by this agreement.

18                                                    ARTICLE V

19                                              WORK SCHEDULES

20           5.1 Work Year: The work year shall be established by the Board of School Directors except

21   that it shall not exceed one-hundred eighty–six (186) days. Modifications may be made in the school

22   calendar by the Board of School Directors, provided that no such modification shall require any profes-




                                                          11
 1   sional employee to work more than one-hundred eighty–six (186) days without receiving payment as

 2   provided for in paragraph 5.2. Such school calendars are hereby incorporated into this clause by

 3   reference and made a part hereof as fully as though herein set forth, whether or not the same be

 4   attached hereto.

 5            5.2 Services in Addition to Established Days: Those professional employees who were

 6   employed before July 1, 1997 and are scheduled to work beyond 186 days, will be paid their per diem

 7   rate established in 1995-96 or two hundred fifty dollars ($250), whichever is greater, for each additional

 8   day. Those hired on or after July 1, 1997 and requested to work in excess of one hundred eighty-six

 9   (186) days, shall receive additional pay at the rate of two hundred fifty dollars ($250) per day if they

10   accept the offer of extended employment. If they decline the offer, the opportunity shall be made

11   available to others.

12            5.3 Workday: The present length of the workday shall generally continue, except in the case

13   of necessity. So long as the length of the workday does not increase, the District may adjust the hours

14   of work in order to fulfill its responsibilities for providing for the education of children enrolled in the

15   public schools of the District.

16            The District will consult with the Association and affected employees as appropriate.

17            Beginning in 2007/08 the workday will be increased to seven and one-half (7 1/2) hours per

18   day for all employees working less per day provided the additional time for elementary staff will not

19   increase the instructional time by more than fifteen (15) minutes and the remaining time will be utilized

20   for additional preparation time.

21            The District will make every effort to equalize the workday to seven and one half (7 1/2) hours

22   per day for all employees no later than 2008/09.




                                                            12
 1           The District may extend the workday by forty-five minutes twice per month except that in

 2   December only one day shall be extended and in June no day shall be extended. These extended

 3   workdays shall be announced on the first workday of the school year and shall be utilized for

 4   professional activities to be determined by the District in its sole discretion. When meetings are

 5   scheduled during these extended workdays, attendance shall be mandatory. At the elementary level,

 6   two of the extended days shall be exclusively utilized for elementary parent conferences and shall be

 7   scheduled in accordance with parent conferences as described in 14.4.

 8           5.4 Emergencies and Snow Days: In the event of an emergency, or in the event of inclement

 9   weather, the District may close the public schools. The District may shorten the Easter vacation or

10   utilize other holidays or extend the school term in order to insure 180 days of instruction without any

11   additional compensation. Provided, however, that if 180 days of instruction can be completed, no such

12   lost days need be made up. In the event inclement weather prevents an employee from reporting to

13   work, said employee shall be allowed to take personal leave as the same is defined herein, provided,

14   however, that said employee shall have personal days available.

15           Said employee shall notify the District as soon as possible of his or her intent to utilize this

16   provision of the agreement.

17           5.5 Planning Time: The District's present policy No. 130 regarding planning time shall be

18   maintained.

20                                                    DUTIES

21           6.1 Established by District: The District has the right to establish the duties of professional

22   employee, and may change the same from time to time. It is understood that duties inherent to the




                                                         13
 1   teaching profession such as the grading of papers or examinations and so forth will normally be

 2   accomplished during periods when classes are not scheduled during the aforesaid workday, but that on

 3   occasion professional employees will perform such duties at other times. It is agreed that no additional

 4   compensation will be paid for any such duties.

 5           6.2 Non-Teaching Duties: It is agreed that on occasion District may require a professional

 6   employee to be on duty for events such as P.T.A./P.T.O meetings, parents' nights, chaperoning events

 7   and trips. Present practice concerning the same shall continue generally, as in paragraph 6.4. No

 8   extra compensation shall be paid for such services. No professional employee shall be required to

 9   serve as any advisor, sponsor, coach or director which will normally and regularly require work after the

10   normal school day. Professional employees assigned by District as club sponsors and advisors, or to

11   activities normally held during the teaching day shall not be compensated except as herein set forth.

12   The extracurricular salary schedule as set forth in this agreement and identified as Exhibit E indicates

13   the compensation which has been agreed to be paid for the extra work listed herein. A professional

14   employee serving as such advisor or sponsor shall notify by May 1 his or her respective principal in the

15   event he or she does not wish to continue as such advisor or sponsor. In the event a principal learns of

16   a vacancy in such position, he or she shall post the same in his or her school so that any professional

17   employee may volunteer for the same. In the event the principal determines that the position should

18   not or cannot be filled from such volunteers, the principal shall appoint such advisor or sponsor from

19   among qualified professional employees giving preference to those who have not yet had the

20   opportunity to serve as advisors or sponsors. In the event of an appointment of a new advisor or

21   sponsor other than a volunteer, the principal shall discuss the same with the professional employee to




                                                        14
 1   be appointed. The principal’s decision as to qualifications or to giving the above preference shall be

 2   final.

 3            6.3 Method of Payment of Additional Compensation: Any additional compensation agreed

 4   upon as provided for in paragraph 6.2 will be paid as part of the normal payroll procedure. In the event

 5   a professional employee fails to complete the full performance of his or her activity and fails to reim-

 6   burse the District, District shall have the right to deduct such monies from his or her pay as a

 7   professional employee.

 8            6.4 After-School Events: Association recognizes that various events held after school require

 9   faculty members to act as chaperons, stage proctors, ticket takers, and to perform other duties, without

10   pay. District recognizes that these duties should be assigned on a fair and equitable basis among all

11   professional employees of the schools involved. It is therefore agreed that, except for athletic events

12   and before and after school duty to which this paragraph shall not apply:

13            A.    The principal of each school shall post a schedule of such events in May, to the extent

14                  that the same have been scheduled, and as promptly as possible as to other events

15                  after the same have been scheduled.

16            B.    Each professional employee shall be permitted to volunteer for such events as he or she

17                  desires to serve.

18            C.    In the event one or more professional employees desire to serve at the same event in

19                  the same capacity, the professional employee having the greatest seniority in District

20                  shall receive the assignment.

21            D.    In the event no professional employee volunteers to serve for any particular position, the

22                  position shall be filled by the principal, who shall make such assignments in rotation




                                                         15
 1                   from an alphabetical list of professional employees in his or her building who have not

 2                   so volunteered or been assigned previously.

 3           E.      In the event the entire list of professional employees was not assigned to such duties in

 4                   the then current school year, each principal shall make his or her alphabetical

 5                   assignments for the succeeding year beginning where he or she left off for the previous

 6                   year.

 7           6.5 Before and After School Duty. It is agreed that, at the secondary level, to supervise the

 8   orderly arrival or exiting of students to or from school, it is necessary for the District to assign profes-

 9   sional employees to regularly scheduled before and after school supervision duties without pay. The

10   assignment of staff to these before and after school duties shall first be through volunteers. The

11   professional staff shall have the opportunity in May to volunteer for posted vacancies for the following

12   school term. In the event that no professional employees volunteer:

13           A.      The principal of each school shall consider before and after school assignment in

14                   rotation from an alphabetical list of professional employees.

15           B.      The principal of each school shall consider his or her alphabetical assignment for the

16                   succeeding year beginning where he or she left off for the previous year.

17           Assignment to before and after school duty shall be considered as one administrative

18   assignment during the work day. Administrative assignment is defined as those activities exclusive of

19   regular instruction and homeroom. Included in the definition are cafeteria duty and study halls. The

20   Association and District recognized that, in the case of emergencies, it may be necessary to assign

21   additional staff to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the student body.

14   the death of a professional employee while employed by the District, said professional employee or his

15   or her estate shall receive a lump sum payment or may choose up to a 5-payment option which must

16   be completed within four years of retirement for accumulated sick leave at the rate of one-half (1/2) of

17   his or her daily rate of pay for each day of accumulated sick leave accumulated after July 1, 1968.

 6   District, the professional employee or his or her estate shall receive a lump sum payment or may

 8   accumulated sick leave. The maximum accumulation of sick leave days for this purpose shall be 100

10            The above provisions shall not apply to professional employees who terminate their

11   employment for reasons other than retirement.

12            7.5 Unpaid Sick Leave: The District may grant a period of leave (beyond that provided by law

13   with pay) without pay to any professional employee requesting the same because of illness provided

14   the professional employee submits a physician's statement indicating the need for such leave. Such

15   leave shall terminate on the first day of July following such leave unless extended at the discretion of

16   the District.

17            7.6 Sick Leave Bank: A Sick Leave Bank shall be established and administered by a

21                   effect unless sixty-five (65%) percent of the Bargaining Unit chooses to join.




                                                         18
 1   B.   Applications for membership shall be submitted in writing. Employees may join only

 2        upon written application to the Bank during the first three (3) weeks of school or, if hired

 3        as a professional employee during the school year, within three weeks of appointment

 4        by the Board.

 5   C.   All members of the Bank must contribute two (2) days upon their joining. Any employee

 6        joining the Bank who was eligible to join previously must contribute the initial two (2)

 7        days, plus any past assessment days paid by the members of the Bank (with equivalent

 8        service) since the Bank's inception.

 9   D.   Contributed days shall remain in the Bank and may not be withdrawn by the employee

10        upon retirement or resignation from the District or on resignation from the Bank, or

11        otherwise. A donation of contributed days to the Bank shall be absolute and irrevocable,

12        and the days so donated shall be available for no other purpose than for use by the

18        District for illness or disability normally covered by sick leave. Bank benefits shall not be

19        available to employees on long-term leaves of absence, except extended sick leave, nor

20        shall Bank benefits be available to employees under conditions where child rearing

21        leave would normally have been granted under past practice.

 1   G.    For an employee to receive any benefits, he or she must exhaust all of his or her

 2         accumulated sick leave, provided, however, that there shall be an unpaid waiting period

 3         after he or she exhausts all of his or her sick leave. Said unpaid waiting period shall be

 4         determined with regard to the amount of accumulated sick leave credited to said

 5         employee as of August 1 of each year. Said unpaid waiting period shall be determined

 6         as follows:

 7   Number of Accumulated

14   H.    Maximum withdrawal for the Bank shall not exceed sixty (60) days. The Sick Leave

15         Committee may authorize use of sick days from the Sick Leave Bank up to a maximum

16         of ten (10) days per request. If more days are needed for an illness, the employee must

17         initiate a request for up to ten (10) more days by completing an additional Sick Leave

18         Bank withdrawal form. All personal leave and sick leave must be taken before use of

19         the Sick Leave Bank shall be considered.

20   I.    The Bank Committee may require of any employee using the Bank benefits a doctor's

 6                  percent over 1986-87 levels shall, in the absence of an epidemic or other such

 8           K.     All records pertaining to operation of the Bank shall be maintained by the Committee.

 9                  The Committee will keep the payroll department of the employer informed of all transac-

20   or step sister, grandparents, or grandparents of spouse, and grandchildren, parent or father-in-law or

                                                        21

 3   employee's option, the professional employee may utilize his or her personal leave upon the conditions

 4   hereafter set forth. A professional employee shall be entitled to a leave of absence with pay at their

 8           8.2 Court Leave: A professional employee who serves on jury duty or who is called as a

 9   witness in any judicial or administrative proceeding in his or her official capacity as a District employee

10   shall be compensated by the District in the amount of the difference between his or her regular rate for

11   regular scheduled workdays lost and the amount received as juror or witness fees, provided he or she

12   submits an official summons or subpoena of such duty and the amount received as fees upon request

14   Court on his or her scheduled workday, he or she shall advise his or her supervisor as promptly as

15   possible and stand ready to report for work if requested. The receipt of a subpoena or the notice to

16   report for jury duty must be reported immediately to the District and the District may request that the

17   professional employee be excused or exempted from such jury, if in the opinion of the District, the

18   professional employee's services are needed at the time of proposed jury service. Court leave shall

 7                        same day; however, if more than the quota gives notice of such leave, said leave

 8                        shall be granted on a "first-come, first-served" basis.

 9                        Employees shall not take said leave before or after the same holiday in

11                        workday preceding the day before a vacation. If there is no substitute required for

12                        the employee, said request will not be counted in the above quotas for any

13                        building.

16                        A and B above be exceeded. The decision of the administrator, as designated by

17                        the District, on the granting of said personal leave in excess of the limitations set

18                        forth above shall be final and binding upon the employee.

 2                                         GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

 3           10.1 Procedural Steps: In the event of a controversy concerning the meaning of application of

 4   any provision of this agreement, there shall be no suspension of or interference with the work, but such

 5   controversy shall be treated as a grievance and shall be settled, if possible in the following manner:

 6   First Step: Within five (5) working days after the occurrence of an event upon which a grievance is

 7   based, the grievance shall be presented orally or in writing to the grievant's supervisor. At any meeting

 8   with the supervisor to discuss the grievance, the professional employee may have his or her Associa-

 9   tion representative present if he or she wishes. The grievance shall be resolved within five (5) working

10   days, if possible.

11   Second Step: If a satisfactory adjustment cannot be reached between the parties in the First Step,

12   within ten (10) working days after the same has been presented to the supervisor, the same grievance

13   may be resubmitted by the professional employee or the Association to the Director of Human

14   Resources. In this Step the grievance shall be reduced to writing and the following information shall be

15   stated with reasonable clearness: The nature of the grievance, including the act or acts complained of,

16   and when the same occurred; the names of the persons involved; the identity of the persons who claim

17   to be aggrieved; the sections of this agreement which the District has allegedly violated and the remedy

18   sought. At any meeting to consider the grievance, the professional employee may have present the

19   professional employee's Association representative and such other representatives as the professional

20   employee desires. The District shall give a written answer to the grievance within ten (10) working

21   days after Second Step submission.

22   Third Step: If a satisfactory adjustment cannot be reached between the parties at Step Two, within ten




                                                        26
 1   (10) working days after the same has been presented to the Director of Human Resources, the same

 2   grievance may be submitted by the professional employee or the Association to the Superintendent of

 3   Schools. All of the information required to be submitted at the Second Step shall be submitted at this

 4   step of the grievance procedure. At any meeting to consider the grievance, the professional employee

 5   may have the representative referred to during the Second Step of the grievance procedure. The

 6   District shall give a written answer to the grievance within ten (10) working days after Third Step

 7   submission.

 8   Fourth Step: If a satisfactory adjustment cannot be reached between the parties at Step Three, the

 9   Association or the District may, within twenty (20) working days from the written decision at the Third

10   Step submit the grievance for arbitration by written notice to the other party. Selection of an arbitrator

11   shall be from a list of arbitrators furnished by the Bureau of Mediation.

12           10.2 Restrictions on Arbitration: Only a single grievance may be heard by the arbitrators at

13   one time, although multiple grievances may be submitted separately to the same arbitrators. The

14   Association shall make the final determination as to whether or not any grievance involving professional

15   employees in a bargaining unit shall be processed and whether or not any grievance in process shall

16   be settled. However, any professional employee may prosecute a grievance through step 3 of the

17   grievance procedure without the aid of the Association, in which case the Association shall notify the

18   District its nonparticipation in writing. Any issue left unsettled by the District and the Association when

19   this agreement is signed or not referred to in this agreement may not be determined by an arbitrator.

20

21           10.3 Authority of Arbitrators: Grievances within the meaning of the grievance procedure and

22   of this arbitration clause shall consist only of disputes involving the interpretation of application of




                                                           27
 1   particular articles of this agreement and involving alleged violations of the agreement. The arbitrators

 2   shall have no power to add to, or subtract from, or modify, any of the terms of this agreement; nor shall

 3   they substitute their discretion for that of the District or the Association where such discretion has been

 4   retained by the District or the Association; nor shall they exercise any responsibility or function of the

 5   District or the Association. No questions affecting the wage structure of the District shall be arbitrable,

 6   and arbitrators may not establish or change any wage scales, except for determining whether or not a

 7   professional employee has been paid correct wages according to the wage scales.

 8           10.4 Back Pay: The District shall not be required to pay back pay except to the date a written

 9   grievance is filed with the District. Any award of back wages shall be limited to the amount of wages

10   the professional employee would otherwise have earned from his or her employment with the District

11   during the periods as above defined, less any unemployment or other compensation for personal

12   services that he or she may have received from any source during the period.

13           10.5 Awards: No arbitrators may make any award which in effect gives the grievant, the

14   Association, or the District anything he, she or it bargained for, but failed to get during negotiations.

15           10.6 Pay at Hearings: No member of the bargaining unit shall be paid by the District for time

16   spent at arbitration hearings except during such time as he or she is appearing or waiting to be heard

17   as a witness called by either party, and except for the grievant if he or she is successful in the

18   grievance.

19           10.7 Timeliness: Any grievance not processed in accordance with the time limits of the

20   grievance procedure shall be deemed to have been resolved against the party failing to comply unless

21   the Association and the District agree specifically to extend the time limits in a particular case.

22           10.8 Expenses: Each side shall pay one-half (1/2) the fee and expense of the impartial




                                                          28

 9   statute, should such a strike, sit-down, sit-in, slow-down, or stoppage of work, boycott, picketing, or

10   other interference with or interruption of the operations of the District occur, the Association shall

11   immediately:

16                         action.

17           11.2 No Lockouts: In consideration of the no-strike pledge by the Association for the duration

18   of this agreement the District shall not lock out its professional employees.

19           11.3 Discipline: Any professional employee who violates the provisions of this Article Eleven

20   may be made the subject of disciplinary action, including discharge, and such action may not be raised

22   conduct prohibited by the Article Eleven.

 2           5.3      Workday: As an experiment, the Association agrees to suspend the 45 minute

 3   extension of the workday addressed in paragraph 5.3 of the contract. In exchange for this suspension,

 4   the Association agrees to enter into an experiment where both the District and the Association attempt

 5   to promote the image of a professional. In its infancy it will be directed at the need of the District to

 6   hold various meetings throughout the year and of the Association to respond to that need in a

 7   professional manner. As basic guidelines the District and the Association agree to the following:

 8           1.       Any meeting (other than emergencies) will be schedule at least one week in advance.

 9           2.       All professional employees will be professional bound to attend. Individuals unable to

10                    attend may ask for release from said meeting. If not released, said professional, upon

11                    not attending, may receive an unsatisfactory rating from the administrator of the

12                    meeting.

13           3.       Time frames of the meeting are to be as short as feasible but no professional will

14                    neglect his/her duties by leaving the meeting before its finalization.

15           4.       Meetings will only be called when they can not be facilitated in some other manner

16                    such as memos, bulletins, etc.

17   If, in the opinion of the District or Association, this experiment has failed then both sides agree to return

18   to the format of 45 minute extended days as stated in paragraph 5.3 of this contract.

 1                                                 ELIGIBILITY

 2   Who is Eligible

 3           If you are included in the eligible classes of employees, you will be eligible for the coverage

 4   under this Plan on the Effective Date specified below:

 5           Eligible Classes:         All full-time professional employees covered by the Collective

 6                                     Bargaining Agreement between the Chambersburg Area School

 7                                     District and the Chambersburg Area Education Association.

 8           Effective Date:           The first day of the next month following the date you start to work.

 9           You will be eligible for the coverage on your dependents on the date you become eligible as

10   stated above or the first day of the next month following the date you acquire your first dependent,

11   whichever is later.

12   Eligible Dependents

13           Dependents who are eligible are

14           1.        your wife or husband

15           2.        your unmarried children under 19 years of age, and

16           3.        your unmarried children 19 years of age but under 23 years of age who are registered

17                     students in regular full-time attendance at school, are principally dependent upon you

18                     for maintenance and support, and are not regularly employed by one or more

19                     employers on a full-time basis of 30 or more hours per week exclusive of scheduled

20                     vacation periods.

21   Residing in the United States of America.

22           The term “children” will include you or your Dependent’s own child, step-child, legally adopted




                                                         69
 1   child or one of for whom legal adoption proceedings have been initiated, and will also include any other

 2   child who is related to you by blood or marriage, principally dependent upon you for maintenance and

 3   support and living with you in a regular parent-child relationship. If husband and wife are both eligible

 4   for the Employee benefits, only one of them may cover their dependents for the dependents benefits.

 5   Who Pays for the Coverage

 6           The coverage on you under this plan is on a non-contributory basis, the entire cost being paid

 7   by the School District.

 8   When Your Coverage Commences

 9           You will be covered on the date you become eligible, provided you are not away from work due

10   to disability on that date. If you are away from work due to disability, your coverage will not start until

11   you return to active full-time work. Each of your eligible Dependents will be covered on the date you

12   become eligible with respect to your Dependents or the date such person becomes a Dependent,

13   whichever is later, provided you have enrolled for benefits for your Dependents (see how to Enroll Your

14   Dependents).

15   How to Enroll Your Dependents

16           You may enroll your eligible Dependents under this Plan by filing with the School district written

17   authorization to deduct from your pay the required contribution toward the coverage and by completing

18   the appropriate enrollment form.

19           If you do not have a Dependent at the time you become covered, you may enroll for the

20   Dependents benefits on the date you acquire a Dependent.




                                                          70
 1   No Medical Examination if You Enroll Promptly

 2           No evidence of insurability of your Dependents will be required if you enroll within one month

 3   from the date you are eligible to enroll. If you do not enroll within that time, you may have to furnish the

 4   Plan satisfactory evidence of insurability of your Dependents in order for them to become covered.

 5   Total Disability

 6           Total disability means:

 7           1.         Your complete inability to perform any and every duty pertaining to your occupation or

 8                      employment; and

 9           2.         Your Dependents’ complete inability to perform the normal activities of a person of like

10                      age and sex.

11                                     WHEN YOUR COVERAGE TERMINATES

12           Your coverage under this Plan will terminate at the earliest time stated below:

13           1.         On the last day of the month during which your employment terminates. For coverage

14                      purposes, your employment is deemed terminated when you cease active work, but

15                      the School District may continue your coverage.

16                      (1)     if you are absent from work because of injury sickness or pregnancy, or

17                      (2)     if you are absent from work because of leave of absence or temporary layoff,

18                              but not beyond the last day of the month following the month in which the

19                              leave of absence or temporary layoff begins.

20           2.         When this Plan is discontinued.

21           In addition to the above, the coverage terminates with respect to an individual dependent.

22           1.         When such person becomes covered as an employee.




                                                          71
 1           2.       When such person ceases to be an eligible Dependent, except that the coverage of a

 2                    Dependent child shall not cease because of the attainment of the anniversary of his

 3                    date of birth specified in the definition of “Dependent” hereunder, if proof is furnished

 4                    to The Plan within 31 days after such anniversary that on such anniversary the

 5                    Dependent child is incapable of self-sustaining employment by reason of mental

 6                    retardation or physical handicap and that such child is chiefly dependent upon your

 7                    support and maintenance. The coverage as to such child will be continued while such

 8                    incapacity continues and while your coverage with respect to your Dependents

 9                    remains in force provided such child meets all the requirements of the definition of

10                    “Dependent” except age.

11           3.       When you cease your contributions towards the coverage for your Dependents.

12                                            CLAIMS PROVISIONS

13   Notice and Proof of Claim

14           All benefits provided under the Plan will be paid as stated in the section below captioned

15   “Payment of the Claims” upon receipt of written proof of claim.

16           Proof of loss on which claim may be based must be furnished to the Plan not later than 90

17   days after the date of such loss. Failure to furnish such proof within the time provided shall not

18   invalidate nor reduce any claim if it shall be shown not to have been reasonably possible to furnish

19   such proof and that such proof was furnished as soon as was reasonably possible.

20   The Plan shall have the right and opportunity to examine you or your Dependent when and so often as

21   it may reasonably require during pendency of claim under the Plan

22




                                                         72
 1   Payment of Claims

 2           All benefits will be paid to you promptly after receipt of due proof of loss.

 3   Actions

 4           No action at law or in equity shall be brought to recover on the Plan prior to the expiration of 60

 5   days after proof of loss has been filed in accordance with the requirements of the plan, nor shall such

 6   action be brought at all unless brought within 3 years from the expiration of the time within which proof

 7   of loss is required by the Plan.

 8   How to Make a Claim for Benefit

 9           Obtain a claim form from the Association Representative or the School District.

10           Please remember that separate claim forms must be collected for each person requesting

11   benefits.

12           Be sure you and the provider have fully completed the form before returning the form to the

13   claims administration office.

14                                   COORDINATION OF BENEFITS PROVISION

15           The provision will coordinate the health benefits payable as described on the preceding pages

16   with similar benefits payable under other plans. The other plans are those providing benefits and

17   services in connection with medical vision or dental care and treatment for which benefits and services

18   are provided by coverage

19                    (1)      toward the cost of which an employer makes contributions on for which an

20                             employer makes payroll deductions, or

21                    (2)      under or through action of any government or tax-supported program, except

22                             Medicare or Medicaid.




                                                         73
 1   When this Provision Is Applicable

 2           This provision is applicable when the total benefits that would be payable in the absence of any

 3   coordination of benefits provision under our Plan and under all other plans covering an individual

 4   exceed the Allowable Expenses incurred during a Claim Determination Period.

 5           An allowable Expense is any necessary, reasonable and customary item of expense which

 6   qualifies as a Covered Charge under our Plan, at least a portion of which is covered under at least one

 7   of the plans covering the individual with respect to whom a claim is made. A Claim Determination

 8   Period is a calendar year.

 9   What Happens When This Provision Is Applicable

10           One of the 2 or more plans involved is the Primary Plan and the other plans are Secondary

11   Plans. The Primary Plan pays benefits first and without consideration of the other plans. The

12   Secondary Plans then make up the difference up to the total allowable Expenses. No plan will pay

13   more than it would have paid without this special provision. If one plan has no coordination of benefits

14   provision, it automatically is Primary.

15       A plan may be Primary if it covers the individual as an employee and secondary if it covers the

16   individual as a dependent. However, if the individual is covered as a dependent under 2 or more plans,

17   the plan which covers such individual as a dependent of a male person is primary. However, the

18   following exceptions may apply in the case of claims made on behalf of a dependent child:

19       (1) When the husband and wife are legally separated or divorced and the parent with custody or

20           the child has not remarried, the Plan which covers the child as a dependent of the parent with

21           custody of such child is Primary, and the Plan which covers the child as a dependent of the

22           parent without custody is Secondary:




                                                        74
 1       (2) When the husband and wife are divorced and the parent with custody of the child is remarried,

 2           the Plan which covers the child as a dependent of the parent with custody is Primary, and the

 3           Plan which covers the child as a dependent of the stepparent is Secondary. In addition, the

 4           plan which covers the child as a dependent of the stepparent will be Primary to the Plan which

 5           covers that child as a dependent of the parent without custody.

 6           However, items (1) and (2) above will not apply in the event of a court decree that establishes

 7           financial responsibility of the medical, dental, or other health care expenses of such dependent

 8           child. The Plan which covers the child as a dependent of the parent with such financial

 9           responsibility is Primary to any other plan which covers the child as a dependent child.

10           If the above conditions do not apply, a plan may be Primary if it covers the individual the longer

11   period of time and Secondary if it covers the individual the shorter period of time.

12           Information necessary to the administration of the provision will be required at the time a claim

13   is submitted.

14   If You Are Injured In a Motor Vehicle Accident

15           Depending upon the type of automobile insurance you buy, under Pennsylvania’s Law, all or

16   part of the cost of treatment of injury arising out of motor vehicle accidents will be covered by your

17   automobile insurance.

18           If the plan has paid any benefits on your behalf for medical expenses arising out of a motor

19   vehicle accident, it is entitled to be reimbursed in the event you obtain a settlement or recovery from

20   the person who was at fault in causing the accident. This called “subrogation”, and you have a duty to

21   cooperate with the Plan to protect and enforce its subrogation rights.

22




                                                         75
 1   Subrogation

 2            In the event of any payment under this Plan, this Plan shall be subrogated to all of the covered

 3   individual’s rights of recovery against any person or organization. The individual shall execute and

 4   deliver instruments and papers or do whatever is necessary to secure such rights. The individual shall

 5   do nothing after the loss to prejudice such rights. This Plan may require the individual to execute an

 6   assignment of all right of recovery against any party for loss to the extent that payments have been

 7   made therefore by this Plan.

 8                                       CLAIMS APPEAL PROCEDURE

 9            You may appeal a denial of benefits of any claim or part of a claim by sending to North

10   American Health Plans, Inc. P.O. box 9501, Amherst, NY 14226-9501, a letter stating why you think

11   your claim should not have been denied, along with any additional information, documents, date or

12   comments you think have a bearing on your claim. Your appeal must be made within 60 days after you

13   have been notified of the denial of benefits. In preparing your appeal, you or your representative will

14   have the right to examine documents pertinent of your appeal. However, medical information cannot

15   be released to you unless your physician/dentist/ophthalmologist/optometrist/etc. authorized its release

16   in writing.

17            North American Health Plans, Inc. will review all the facts on which the original decision was

18   based and any additional information you have provided to your appeal. You will receive a final

19   decision in writing within 60 days of the date your appeal is received. Where there are special

20   circumstances requiring extensive review of technical records by an impartial specialist, a final decision

21   may take longer than 60 days.

 2                                              DENTAL BENEFITS

 3                                                  (Self-Funded)

 4                                           Effective January 1, 1991

 5   Covered Dental Charges

 6           Covered dental charges are the Usual, Customary, and Reasonable charges of a dentist or

 7   physician for the services and supplies listed below required for dental care and treatment to any

 8   disease, defect or accidental injury, or for preventive dental care.

 9           Except as described in the section entitled “After Coverage Terminates”, such charges must be

10   incurred and the services and supplies furnished while you or your Dependent are eligible.

11           A charge will be deemed incurred as of the date the service is rendered or the supply is

12   furnished, except that such charge will be deemed incurred with respect to endodontics, on the date

13   the tooth was opened for root canal therapy.

14   After Coverage Terminates

15           The benefits described herein are also provided for covered dental charges

16           A.       for services or supplies furnished within 90 days after coverage terminates, if the

17                    charges were incurred while coverage was in force, and

18           B.       incurred within 90 days after coverage terminates if an accident resulting in injury to

19                    natural teeth sustained while coverage was in force causes continuous total disability

20                    from the date of termination;

21   provided benefits are not payable for such expenses under any other group insurance policy or plan.

22




                                                         77
 1   Payment of Benefits

 2   USUAL, CUSTOMARY AND REASONABLE (UCR) METHOD

 3            Usual, Customary and Reasonable (UCR) means that fee determined and payable by that Plan

 4   for covered services as follows:

 5            The Usual fee is the fee which an individual dentist most frequently charges the majority of his

 6   patients for the procedure performed.

 7            The Customary fee is determined by the Plan based on the charges made by most dentist of

 8   the same specialty in comparable geographical/economic areas for the procedure performed.

 9            The Reasonable fee is the fee allowed by the Plan for services involving unusual clinical

10   circumstances.

11            Benefits will be provided for eligible dental services when billed by the licensed dentist in

12   charge of the case. Unless otherwise indicated, payment will be made whether services are performed

13   in or out of the hospital.

14            Payments for Basic Program services performed by dentists who have agreed to be

15   Participating Dentists under the Plan will be made to the dentist on the basis of 100% of the UCR

16   allowance or the amount charged, whichever is less. There will be no additional charge to the patient

17   in such cases.

18            Payment for services performed by Non-Participating Dentists will be made on the basis of the

19   UCR allowance or the amount charged, whichever is less. If the dentist’s charge is more than the UCR

20   benefits paid by the Plan, you will be responsible for payment of the remaining balance.

21            Except for Orthodontics which specifies a lifetime maximum, payment under the Plan is limited

22   to a maximum of $1,000.00 per person for all services rendered in any calendar year.




                                                          78
 1   Deductible Amount

 2            The deductible amount is the amount of the benefits payable under your plan of basic hospital,

 3   surgical and medical expense insurance to the extent that such benefits relate to the covered dental

 4   charges hereunder.

 5   Predetermination

 6            Predetermination is used by the Plan to determine eligibility of the patient and to review the

 7   treatment plan to determine the extent of coverage. This assures both the patient and the dentist that

 8   the particular service will be performed is a covered service. However, approval by the Plan of

 9   treatment plan during the predetermination process does not necessarily constitute acceptance of

10   liability for the services involved in the treatment plan. For example: if the patient’s coverage is

11   terminated before the planned treatment is completed, the Plan will not be liable for any service

12   provided after the date of such termination.

13   Predetermination is required for:

14            All treatment plans of $150.00 or more;

15            The extraction of six or more teeth;

16            Crown restorations;

17            Periodontics; and

18            Orthodontics

19   The Basic Program – 100% UCR

20       1.       Routine oral examination and prophylaxis (including cleaning, scaling and polishing teeth),

21                but not more than once each in any period of 6 consecutive months.




                                                         79
 1   2.    Periapical X-rays as required and bitewing X-rays once in any period of 6 consecutive

 2         months.
