Non-contact time for part-time teachers

Myth: I have recently returned to work as a part-time (.5) classroom teacher, and understand that only full-time teachers have access to non-contact time.

Fact: Part-time teachers also have access to non-contact time, calculated as a pro-rata proportion of the entitlements of a full-time teacher. So a .5 teacher is entitled to .5 of a full-time teacher's amount of non-contact time.
