The following criteria are used in assigning the schedule:
Seniority - Seniority is one of several criteria used in attempting to schedule all teachers fairly. However, it is not the only one and may be overruled by other considerations.
Seniority refers to a contract teacher’s length of service at any YBM/Sisa-Yong-O-Sa Institute. Seniority is relevant only for scheduling, specifically in assigning teaching times and sub hours. Seniority is not a binding policy. Teachers cannot make demands of the Academic Supervisor or the administrative staff regarding their schedule or housing based on seniority.
Please be aware of this and understand that in no case is seniority a binding clause at the school.
Past schedules - every effort will be made not to schedule someone on split shifts more than four months in a row (although there will be times when it will be unavoidable to do so). This applies across the seniority list.
Special Circumstances - Special circumstances such as, but not limited to, having your parents visit, or Korean classes will be taken into consideration.
Field of expertise - This play a role in scheduling. The more types of classes that you are able to teach the more flexibility the Academic Supervisor has in writing the schedule.
Overtime - If you want overtime you must be available to take a split shift, if necessary, to get it. If you are not prepared to take a split shift, don’t be surprised to see someone else take those hours. This does not mean that you will only get overtime if you take a split shift. If you do need to take a split shift to get overtime, you will be rotated off the split within a month or two, as noted above.
All ECC or other YBM overtime must be pre-approved by the Academic Supervisor and Institute Manager
Finally, any or all of these considerations may be overruled by need. If a teacher is needed from 7:00 to 9:00 PM and you are the only person that can be scheduled to do it, you will be scheduled to teach the class
