I received a meeting invite at the beginning of the school year by a central office administrator who is one level above my principal. There were no details really listed about what it was for, so I emailed and ask what it was pertaining to. The title of the meeting was a fundraiser that I had been forced into last year by my administrators but didn't want to do. She never gave me an answer or any details. My principal is absent the day of the meeting with a dr. appt so our asst. principal who is not new but is new to our school sits in. She doesn't know me...she doesn't know our school. In walks this administrator with 2 other people that I didn't know where coming. They are the sales reps for the fundraiser. They are all ambushing me and forcing me into this fundraiser again. They all said that they went to our superintendent saying that my school was the only elementary school in the district who hasn't signed to do the fundraiser. The administrator said this was a "priority" for the district. (This is all a lie. There are multiple schools who don't do the fundraiser including at least 2 in the feeder schools that she is over. It is also a lie that it is a priority for the district because the only district endorsed fundraiser is United Way.) Did the administrator call meetings with those other PE teachers and ambush them? Nope. Just me. I protested and said the reason I don't want to do it is that our school does a lot of fundraisers. I counted it all up and this fundraiser will be the 13th of the year. In fact, our school finished a cookie dough fundraiser just a couple of weeks ago and it went poorly. I have refused to the run the fundraiser because our parents are out of money and my principal will not take a stand and say "no more" so he is going to run it. And by not saying no more, he is going to rope the school in to doing it next year. If I get called into a meeting like that again, what should I do? I was so caught off guard and unnerved by the whole thing that I didn't know what to do and just sat there and typed notes through the whole thing and spoke up a couple of times, but I knew they weren't going to listen to me. They had their agenda.
