The District reserves the right to determine the number and kinds of personnel necessary for the safe and/or efficient operation of the extracurricular program.
Employees may not be involuntarily assigned to perform duties listed on this extracurricular assignment pay schedule; however, once such an assignment has been accepted it must be fully completed as directed by the site level administrators or their designee.
- An assistant is employed when 20-40 students are involved in the football, track, wrestling or swimming program and other assistants when the number of participants exceeds forty (40, 20 per assistant). For purposes of preliminary staffing, the number actively participating in the last meet of the previous season is the determining factor.
- If in a championship playoff, additional payment requests will be submitted at the conclusion of the activity. Extended season payment is based on the stipend divided by twelve (12), (season is considered to be 12 weeks), for one (1) week: divided again by five (5) for a daily rate.
- Staff is determined by the average number of active participants in the previous year. An assistant is authorized when forty-six (46) students are involved in the program and a second assistant when the number of participants exceeds ninety-two (92).
- Eligibility for extracurricular pay is determined by a minimum of thirty-six (36) activity sessions and four (4) special athletic events.
- During the term of this agreement, the extracurricular stipend for coaches of high school varsity sports will be increased should their team be administratively approved by the Principal and otherwise required to participate in post-season playoffs. The amount of this increase in stipend shall generally provide proportional weekly pay for each week beyond the regular league season, but in no case shall exceed thirty percent (30%) of the original stipend. This increase shall in no way be considered a bonus. It is intended only to provide compensation for the extra time involved.
- The season begins on the first day the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), or the league, and the District allow practice to begin, or the day practice actually begins with District approval. The coach must be in attendance for the practice to be official. The season ends on the date of the last league game for football, baseball, volleyball, soccer, and basketball. The season ends at the conclusion of the sectional meets for all other sports.
- It is understood that the term “concert” refers to a formal, planned, and publicized evening performance designed for students, parents, school, and community.
- A “Music Festival” must be a CMEA sanctioned event. Each individual ensemble must perform on its own at a CMEA festival to qualify for extra-curricular pay. It is possible to combine groups at a festival, but prior approval from the Music Department Chair is required.
- These “requirements” for extra-curricular pay represent a minimum. It is expected that each music teacher will be responsive to requests from their administration and community to perform at worthwhile functions. These would include, but not be limited to: pep rallies, community events, school assemblies, patriotic observances, etc.
