44-31. Ad Hoc Professional Problems Committees

The Board and the Union will create ad hoc professional problems committees (PPC) to address concerns within administrative units other than schools on an as needed basis and upon request of the Union. The unit PPC will be formed to share information relevant to the entire unit and to discuss and resolve unit-wide problems, including but not limited to issues of excessive paperwork. The unit chief shall be a member of an ad hoc unit PPC. The Union shall have five members on a unit PPC. The Union shall designate a Union chair, who shall be responsible for developing agendas and communicating with the unit chief. When a unit PPC is created, the PPC shall meet monthly or more often if the Union chair and the unit chief agree until the issues that led to its creation are resolved. The unit chief may have the assistance of principals and network staff in conducting the meeting.
