The principal has an obligation to ensure that excess employees have regular programmed duties prior to redeployment. For a teacher, this includes, but is not limited to, rostered teaching duties, team teaching, replacement classes, extras and supervisory duties.
Employees identified as excess to workplace requirements will continue to be charged to the school.
During the redeployment period, a school should continue to give the excess employee first consideration for placement opportunities as they arise in the school, including temporary placement into any suitable fixed term position that may arise in the school.
The region will make all reasonable efforts to ensure employees who are excess as a result of a school closure are placed in suitable alternative positions.
