    All right ladies and gentleman I need some help. I am in charge of making the duty schedule for this coming year. I want to make as about as even as possible. I have all ready heard whining about how much one teacher felt like she had it all the time last year. We only have one 15 minute recess and then whoever has recess duty also has to be the two teachers helping kids to their cars. It's really light duty compared to some. But I just can't wrap my head around an equitable way to do it. So any help would be great!!!!!

    Can you assign them per marking period and switch them around for the subsequent ones? Might work.

    OK so 6 weeks each. Find 2 short weeks (maybe Thanksgiving and one other??) And group them as one.

    Maybe do 2 or 3 week shifts, so the stretch with the worst weather is evenly distributed??

    Ok....I'm seeing it like this, a 7 day rotating cycle. You'll just have to go through each month and label each day A-G...

    Day A: cars: teachers 1,2,...recess teacher 1
    Day B: cars: teachers 2,3...recess teacher 2
    Day C: cars: teachers 3,4... Recess teacher 3
    Day D: cars: teachers 4,5...recess teacher 4
    Day E: cars: teachers 5,6... Recess teacher 5
    Day F: cars: teachers 6,7...recess teacher 6
    Day G: cars: teachers 7,1...recess teacher 7
    Then start the cycle again.;) with 7 sections, no one will end up with duty EVERY Monday for example...I think it works...
