Memorandum of Agreement
Elementary Lunchroom Duty
(September 29, 1986)
(Amended May 29, 2003)
Based on the recommendations of the Joint Committee
formed to conduct a study and feasibility of utilizing the
supplemental contract approach to elementary school
lunchroom supervision, the following guidelines and stipulations
A. The duties and responsibilities of the lunchroom duty
teacher shall continue to be the general supervision of
pupils in the lunchroom. Lunchroom duty is exercised
under the general supervision of the principal.
B. A supplemental contract shall be issued for one school
year or the balance of a school year. The supplemental
service may be provided by two teachers on a 50 percent
basis for each. The lunchroom duty supplemental contract
shall be administered in a manner consistent with
Article 905 of the current Board/CEA Agreement. Pay
shall be at the 8.00% rate and shall be paid in two equal
amounts on the thirteenth and twenty-first pay dates.
The number of lunch periods necessary to accommodate
the students in a building shall be determined by the
principal. There shall be one supplemental contract for
each lunch period (which may be shared by two teachers).
C. An Instructional Assistant(s), if assigned to lunchroom
duty, will work in cooperation with and under the supervision
of the lunchroom duty teacher. The number of
assistants assigned will be determined by the principal.
This program is not intended to reduce the assignment
of assistants in the lunchroom.
D. Teachers accepting the lunchroom duty supplemental
contract shall not claim a violation of Section 302.02 as a
result of duties connected with such supplemental
E. Lunchroom duty teachers shall be included equally in
number on the roster for duties assigned to other staff
members. Supplemental contract lunchroom duty
teacher(s) shall not be assigned other duties during the
regularly scheduled lunch period.
F. Lunchroom supervision shall be rotated equally among
the staff as a regular duty without extra pay when the
paid lunchroom duty teacher is absent. In the event of
extended absence by the lunchroom duty teacher where
there is not a shared contract, a second contract can be
issued for the prorated amount with a corresponding
reduction in the original contract. An extended absence
is one that lasts or is expected to last beyond one rotation
of the staff on lunch duty.
G. Elementary principals will be promptly provided with a
description of this program and directions regarding the
securing of volunteers for the lunchroom duty supplemental
contract. Principals will select a teacher(s) from
among the volunteers and forward the name(s) for
appointment. In the event there are no volunteers in a
school, lunchroom supervision will continue to be
assigned as an unpaid duty.
H.During the 1986–1987 school year, the Joint Committee
will continue to monitor the program and will make
whatever changes they determine are needed. Late in the
school year, the Joint Committee will make recommendations
to the Superintendent and the CEA President
regarding any changes that should be made and specifically
recommending continuation or termination of the
lunchroom duty supplemental contract program. The
Superintendent will discuss these recommendations with
the CEA President prior to making a decision regarding
the continuation or termination of the program.
