JCCPS

The countywide MCEA/MCPS Labor Management Collaboration Committee (LMCC) has discussed the following framework for assisting program area collaboration committees in understanding their scope of authority. In their ongoing collaborative problem-solving, such committees are charged with:

• Developing and implementing solutions that are within the purview of the department/program,

• Making joint recommendations to the countywide LMCC for solutions that are beyond their scope of authority, and

• Reporting back to the LMCC on significant issues on which they are unable to reach consensus

What is the Joint Collaboration Committee for Psychological Services (JCCPS)?

 School Psychologists via the JCCPS are one of the MCEA/MCPS Collaboration Committees established under the provisions of Article 6 Section F4b of the MCEA/BOE contract, which reads, in part:

“The LMCC will develop processes and guidelines for providing non-school-based unit members with the same access to collaborative and shared decision making as their school-based colleagues.   To accomplish this, the LMCC is responsible for creating and providing oversight to non-school-based collaboration committees.  These committees are charged with holding ongoing discussions and engaging in collaborative problem solving on matters of interest and concern (emphasis added).  Each collaboration committee is expected to be representative of and accountable to staff and involve staff in the decision-making process.”
