If your workload is less than 100%, it is important at the beginning of the year to meet your principal to set your work calendar for the year.

The teacher who is working part time is entitled to a percentage equal to the percentage of the workload that he or she assumes in relation to a full-time teacher's workload.

A school year shall consist of 200 workdays, with 181 days of instruction and 19 pedagogical days for teachers who have a full-time workload.

For example: if you have a 50% workload and started on the first day of school, you will work 100 days this year, 91 days of teaching and 9 pedagogical days.

You need to determine your work schedule with your school principal, instructional days and pedagogical days. It is important to do this early in the year to avoid any misunderstandings.
