General Policy Guidelines for the Hiring of Team Members
The following notes are intended to inform teachers about the rules and procedures established for the purpose of equitably selecting marking team members.
Participation in any one session does not guarantee inclusion in the following sessions; for example, participation in the February session does not guarantee inclusion in the July session. Teachers who apply to mark in only one session do not thereby diminish their chances of being selected. Team members are selected in October for the February session and in March for the July session.
Members selected without previous team experience may be given the opportunity to mark for up to two or three years not necessarily at consecutive sessions, depending upon subject committee and marking performance. After a maximum of four to six marking sessions, team members will be rotated from a marking team in order to provide other teachers opportunities to participate in the marking process.
The following qualifications are considered in the selection process of each applicant:
* currently a teacher of the appropriate Grade 12 subject
* teaches at a Public school, or an Independent school recognized by the Ministry
* has at least two years of experience teaching the provincially-examinable subject
* holds a valid British Columbia teaching certificate
* has post-graduate education
In order to participate on a marking team, an application form must be submitted annually. However, due to the large number of applications received each school year, selection of an applicant to a team might not be possible.
Only those teachers selected to mark in a given session will be notified.
During the July marking session, NO marking teams will be required to mark for the entire period of July 1 - 12. The various subject marking teams will be organized to begin and end marking on differing dates. Nevertheless, when planning personal schedules, applicants should be prepared to mark during any portion of the entire session.
