I don't really understand the talk about contract time. Are some of you paid hourly? Where I live you are expected to be at the school for 15 minutes before and after the bell. Most teachers are at school early and leave late. My normal hours would be 7:45 - 4. If teachers leave with the bell then how do they get their prep done. I have an hour and a half of prep a week but it never seems to get all done. My contract just states the days I work not the hours. Admin expects us to be professional and get everything done. I'm sure I'm missing something.
