For Adult Education, the time devoted during the workweek to the presentation of courses and lessons as well as the time that the teacher devotes to pedagogical follow-up related to his or her specialty, as required by the board, shall be 20 hours per week or the equivalent.

For Vocational Education, workload also consists of 20 hours per week and includes presentation of courses and lessons, remediation, support and supervision, other than both the supervision of the arrival and dismissal of students and the movement of students.

The 20 hours is considered as the average weekly time that may be exceeded during certain weeks and compensated by a reduction in time during other weeks. In this case, however, the total time shall remain at 800 hours per year for Adult Education, which includes the 24 hours devoted to pedagogical activities. Total hours for Vocational Education shall remain at 720 hours.

If the Board exceeds, for a given teacher, the 800-hour (Adult Ed) or the 720-hour (Voc Ed) workload mentioned in the preceding paragraph, the teacher is entitled, for each excess period of 50 to 60 minutes, to a compensation equal to 1/1000 of the annual salary. Compensation shall be remitted in the last pay period of the school year in question.
