Admin History/Bio
The BJE was responsible for recruiting, hiring and dismissing teachers and principals at the request of the various schools, for setting codes of practice, and for establishing salary scales in accordance with provincial standards. As such, it was the responsibility of the executive director to perform these tasks and maintain the appropriate files. The executive director worked closely with the Jewish Teacher’s Alliance, which represented the teachers, specifically when dealing with salary, pension and discipline issues. The Personnel Committee was often consulted on matters of importance and for making procedural and other decisions on topics such as personnel budgeting, grievances or other problem cases, and when dealing with the Jewish Teacher’s Alliance. Any teacher appointed to a school had to be made in consultation with and approved by the BJE. This procedure had been in place since the BJE’s founding in 1950 until the late 1970s or early 1980s.
Scope and Content
The series contains teacher personnel records, organized alphabetically by the teacher's name. The files include resumes and teacher applications; employment records indicating affiliated school, salary, days absent and other administrative information; BJE questionnaires; information on work visas and related government requirements; correspondence to and from the BJE Executive Director regarding performance, special citations or awards, and school placements; letters of reference from past employers; and on occasion, grievance letters to the UJWF, BJE Executive Director and BJE Personnel Committee.
There are also several files documenting the recruitment of Israeli teachers for schools in Toronto, which include applications and resumes, correspondence between the BJE Executive Director and the Jewish schools in Toronto, as well as representatives of the Jewish Agency and other organizations in Israel.
