Professional judgement is something teachers exercise daily in their classrooms. ETFO has been advocating for greater recognition of teacher professional judgement for many years. The inclusion of the definition of professional judgement in the 2014-2017 Central Agreement was a significant advancement for teachers.
If you have questions regarding the use of your professional judgement in your practice, please contact Professional Relations Services at 1-888-838-3836 or your local representative.
Copies of Understanding Your Professional Judgement (PDF | Word) were sent out to schools in the May 2016 Stewards' Mailing. The flyer supports ETFO members as they act upon and advocate for their professional judgement.

ETFO is pleased to announce a new resource series entitled Professional Judgement Matters. These resources will provide ETFO teacher and occasional teacher members with additional support on the issue of exercising professional judgement.
