Certificate of Merit® – Teacher Work Agreement
Dear CM Teacher:
Thank you for your continued support of the Certificate of Merit® (CM) Program. The CM Program can only work with the assistance of its teachers. If you intend to give your students the gift of CM, you must be willing and available to help. In accordance with the CM Policies & Procedures, we have found that it is necessary to formalize this willingness to help in the form of a Teacher Work Agreement so that we can guarantee the success of the program. This Agreement outlines your minimum responsibilities as a teacher entering students in the program. Please read this Agreement on the next page carefully. This Agreement must be E-signed between November 13 and December 1, 2018. Your student enrollment will not be considered complete until this Agreement is received.
CM Policies & Procedures, Section 5.6
Branches may require participating CM Teachers to work, in order to assist the Branch in the administration and operation of CM Evaluations. Participation requirements (e.g. number of work hours) are determined by the number of students a CM Teacher has registered as of November 11. The Branches may use and collect a Teacher Work Agreement from each participating CM Teacher, and impose a monetary fine (“Non-Work Fee”) for CM Teachers who do not fulfill any mandatory CM work requirement established by CM Council and/or the Branch. CM Teachers who do not pay the Non-Work Fee by the deadline set by the Branch shall be disqualified from participating in subsequent CM Evaluations until the Non-Work Fee has been fully paid.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.
I look forward to working with you. Thank you.
