Term Appointments of School Administrators: An Alberta Case.
Bergen, John J.
In 1976 the Edmonton (Alberta) Public School Board resolved to designate administrative positions on a three-year term. The Edmonton public school local of the Alberta Teachers' Association attempted to prevent the implementation of the new policy. After this attempt was unsuccessful, six employees of the school board who accepted term appointments were charged with unprofessional conduct. When these members appealed, the Teaching Profession Appeal Board determined that a school board has the authority to designate term appointments unless this is specifically prevented in the collective bargaining agreement. The board held that the teachers association may not charge members with unprofessional conduct unless acting in the interest of the public as well as in the interest of the association. (Author/JM)
