Second grade secondary school scrutinies as 2020/21, pupils with insufficiencies will have the educational debt and will have to recover it. Are teachers, who have given a grade of less than six tenths, required to hold remedial courses? How much is the hourly wage?
Final evaluation as 2021/22
In the current school year, as reported in several of our articles, the final evaluation takes place according to the ordinary discipline (DPR 122/09), which is why the class councils they may not admit students to the next class or suspend the judgment of students who present scores of less than six tenths in one or more disciplines (this in cases in which they present insufficiencies such as not to lead to an immediate judgment of non-promotion). The suspension of the trial is also foreseen if the insufficiency concerns the “new” teaching of Ed. Civica, as we read in note no. 699 of May 2021.
For the aforementioned pupils, that is, who have a grade of less than 6/10 in one or more disciplines, the class council suspends the judgment and communicates the assessments relating to all the disciplines to the families. In such cases, schools must organize educational interventions aimed at recovering educational debts (interventions to be completed by the end of the school year or by the beginning of lessons of the following school year only in exceptional cases, due specific organizational needs duly documented), as required by Ministerial Decree no. 80/2007 and as we read in the OM n. 92/2007.
The class council, regarding the recovery of educational debts, has the following skills:
- identify, on the recommendation of the teachers of the subjects being recovered, the nature of the shortcomings that led to the educational debt;
- indicate the objectives of the recovery activity;
- verify the results of the aforementioned activity for the purpose of recovering the educational debt.
Who holds remedial courses
The didactic-educational interventions of recovery:
- constitute additional teaching activities (except in cases where the same are carried out using the 20% share referred to in Ministerial Decree 47/06):
- they are carried out by teachers of the institute and, secondly, using external teachers and / or external subjects, with the exclusion of “profit” organizations, identified according to quality criteria approved by the teaching staff and approved by the school board.
Are teachers required to carry them out? No
Neither the Ministerial Decree n. 80/2007 nor the OM n. 92/2007 provide that the remedial courses are held by the teachers of the discipline being remedied. To this we add the fact that the courses constitute additional teaching activities both if carried out within the school calendar of the lessons and if carried out outside it.
In light of the above, it is evident that the teachers, who have given a grade of less than six tenths and therefore of the subject subject to recovery, are under no obligation to hold remedial courses; neither have rather faculty. The courses, in fact, are held by those who express their willingness to do so.
The criteria for the use of teaching and non-teaching staff to be employed in the aforementioned activities and the methods of assigning the relative remuneration, as we read in article 10 of Ministerial Decree no. 80/07, are defined in the negotiation of the institution.
As mentioned above and as required by the 2016/18 CCNL, the remedial courses are paid with the resources of the institute fund, according to the criteria defined in the institute bargaining.
We remind you that, pursuant to article 40 of the CCNL 2016/18, the Fund for the educational institution merged into the Fund for improving the training offer. The latter, we always read in the aforementioned article 40, remains aimed at remunerating staff (among other things) for the purposes already provided for the Fund for the educational institution, pursuant to art. 88 of the 2007 CCNL, including:
c. the additional hours provided for the implementation of remedial courses for pupils with educational debt. These activities are an integral part of the institute’s training offer and are planned by the faculty board in accordance with the POF and with the evaluation processes activated.
Table 5 attached to the 2007 National Collective Labor Agreement provides for a gross hourly wage of € 58.00 for the above courses.
