1. Teaching Assignments
a. Except for sound educational reasons, a teacher's qualifications, as defined in Article E.13.3 of this Agreement, shall determine the teacher's assignment. The teacher has the right to be informed in writing within seven (7) days of a written request the reasons for any reassignment.

The teacher has the right to refuse to act as teacher-in-charge except in an emergency and then only for the duration of the emergency. Job action shall not constitute an emergency.
b. The teacher-in-charge, when requested to act, shall attend to ensuring that routine supervision adequate to secure the safety of students and security of the school is maintained, and shall deal with emergent matters as they may arise, with required assistance from the Board Office. Routine attendance recording and information reporting to the Board shall be maintained.

f. While acting as teacher-in-charge, the teacher is covered by all terms and conditions of this Agreement.
