In January 2015, the “Understanding and Exploration of Teacher Time and Workload Intensification: Final Report of the Joint Committee” was released. Not long after this document was released, the Sun West School Division (SWSD) and the Sun West Teachers’ Association (SWTA) negotiated a 4-year LINC agreement that runs from September 2015 through June 30, 2019. As part of that contract, a Memorandum of Agreement on exploring Teacher Prep Time was signed. A Teacher Prep Time Committee was formed to examine teacher preparation time within the SWSD. This committee tabled a report and recommendations to both the SWSD and to the SWTA in early March 2016. Near the end of the 2014-2015 school year, executive members of the SWTA and trustees from the SWSD also agreed to have a committee examine the issue of “Teacher Workload Intensification” within Sun West schools. This report presents a summary of this examination and provides 18 recommendations focused on alleviating certain aspects of teachers’ workloads.

Sun West teachers in all schools can request access to the teaching materials and resources created by the Distance Learning Centre. And while these courses have not been specifically designed for the face to face classroom teacher, we hope that you will be able to gather ideas, inspiration and perhaps even some lessons from the courses.
