Towards a better management of absences predictable
In the secondary, in the case of a short absence, it is the institution that is supposed to cope with extra hours provided by other teachers. Beyond fifteen days, the academy must do the replacement. The ministry wants to “reactivate” the protocols of replacement of absences short, created in 2005, but “fallen into disuse in many schools.”
For the absences point but to repeat, say, “absences” slow-downs”, the ministry wants to generalize to the academic year 2017 protocols for “better support for personal difficulties” (to receive, consider solutions, type tutoring, relief, service, temporary withdrawal, etc.).
The management of absences foreseeable must also be improved. As well, teacher training will be organized during the little holiday, on the basis of volunteering and paid work. Similarly, the juries and the preparations of the review will be organized preferably on Wednesday afternoon.”
A guide about the permissions of absence will be developed. At the same time, the ministry commits to publish every year the national indicators on the non-replacements.
