Nurses Info

Below is some of the contract language specific to nurses.

As a general rule, nurses shall have a thirty (30) minute planning period daily.

On KCPS-designated Professional Development Days and full day Teacher Workdays, one-half day will be for professional development and one-half day will be for working in their offices.

Nurses will receive payment for required attendance at faculty meeting or any related assembly held after or before the regular workday.

Every effort will be made to provide a designated parking space at each school for the nurse.


MPP Teachers as TAs

There seems to be a lot of confusion on the workday for teachers and teaching assistants of the Missouri Preschool Project classrooms.

Teaching assistants have an 8.5 hour workday, which includes a 30 minute duty-free lunch.

MPP teachers work a 7 hour and 45 minute workday which includes a 25 minute prep time in the morning before the students arrive, a plan time of at least 50 minutes and a 30 minute duty-free lunch period.

If your workday is different, please contact the union office.

A Small Incentive

You already know how important being a Union member in this district is. Contract and policy violations, evaluation and termination issues, as well as the possibility of being hotlined occur all too often in this district. And while we signed up almost half of our new teachers last week, half have not signed up. Too often, we hear from non-members who are in trouble telling us that no one ever talked to them about the Union. Please talk to the new employees in your school or at your site, let them know about the benefits of being a Union member and encourage them to join.


Severance Pay - Payout Formula

The payout on PTO days follows a formula that only pays you a percentage of the days. It also depends in if you were hired before or after January 1, 2009.


PTO Day Guidelines

Please read the guidelines for using your PTO Days. The district can dock your pay if you don't use them correctly.
  1. They are not vacation days. You cannot use them for vacation or to extend a vacation.
  2. They are to be used for personal business or if you are ill.
