Call Outs and the Automated Dispatch System (ADS)
The School District ADS allows a teacher to request a particular TOC to be dispatched to fill an absence. However, it is the policy of the BCTF that Teachers not express a preference for a particular TOC when logging an absence. This BCTF policy (49.19 - Members' Handbook) is rooted in the regard we have for teaching as a Profession, in the regard we have for each other as Professional colleagues, and in our (BCTF) Code of Ethics.
