• Teachers should be paid during the period of time that schools and centres are closed, according to their planned work schedule, as established before the announcement of the closure.
• Substitute teachers, hourly paid teachers and teachers by the lesson whose assignments were already confirmed before the announcement of the closure should be paid according to their planned work schedule.
• Teachers who were already scheduled to be absent before the announcement of the closure should be paid according to the nature of their absence, as the case may be (e.g. vacation days, medical appointment). Absences should be recorded as approved.
• Teachers will continue to accumulate benefits, as if they had been at work. These days are treated as workdays.
Despite the fact that some local agreements may contain provisions pertaining to this matter, these orientations are made, taking into consideration the instructions made by the Premier. These are exceptional times.
