British Columbia Teachers' Federation
This paper presents British Columbia Teachers' Federation's (BCTF) research report that has produced tables which allow the BCTF and its locals to consider the prevalence of Salary Indemnity Plan (SIP) claims by school district. While the data shown in this report indicate high prevalence of stress in some school districts, they actually under-report the total prevalence of stress-related disorders in BC teachers. The tables show each district's teacher full-time equivalent (FTE) totals as a percentage of provincial FTEs, as well as their SIP claims as a percentage of provincial SIP claims. Using the 2003-08 data, 34 BC districts have more teachers above age 50 than the 39% provincial average while 26 have below average numbers. Eight districts have over 50% of their teachers over 50, yet only three of these (Sunshine Coast, Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island North) incur proportionately higher SIP claims than the provincial average. This report is a result of co-operation and data-sharing between BCTF departments and areas: Research, Health and Safety, and Income Security. (Contains 2 tables.)
