SENIORITY

Q. What event establishes the starting point for seniority as defined by the Collective Bargaining Agreement?
Is there another type of seniority? If so, what is it?
A. Date of original probationary appointment. Article III. E., p.3. The other type of seniority is found in the Commissioner’s Regulations. It is used to determine layoffs and is based on the time served in the teacher’s current tenure area in which layoffs will occur. The Commissioner’s Regulations are not in the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
