PAT has a process for contract exceptions to allow professional educators at a worksite to apply for an exception to the terms and conditions of the Agreement (Article 1.9).
Contract exceptions are due Friday, May 12th, 2023 and must be approved by the PAT Advocacy Committee and the District, prior to implementation.
A contract exception is valid only for the school year for which it was approved.
The Contract Exception Form and FAQ’s can be found at pdxteachers.org "Know Your Contract" page.
The Advocacy Committee will host a virtual meet to offer support with the process in April, date TBA.
