How will teachers in the Absent Teacher Reserve benefit from this new contract?

ATRs will enjoy the same salary and retroactive pay package as all other teachers and a new two-year pilot will give ATRs improved access to professional and relevant job placements. Under the new contract, schools that select an ATR for permanent placement will not have that ATR’s salary included in the school’s average teacher salary calculation, which means that principals no longer have a reason to pass over more senior educators in favor of newer hires with lower salaries. What’s more, we also won an unprecedented voluntary severance package for ATRs.
