How long, after the bell rings (dismissing the students), are you expected to stay? And how long DO you stay? ****** I have worked at schools where you have to stay anywhere for 30 minutes to an hour after the bell rings. That's not an issue for me since I am a "late stayer". But i am NOT used to THIS school. There is NO expectation at all for teachers to stay. MANY teachers are gone within a few minutes. People are ALL telling me that I shouldn't be staying so late (in my current position of an 1 on 1 aide)...and that's within 20 minutes of the bell. But - not having a planning period, that's my time to meet with teachers about the expectations and progress of my student. Thing is? Many times... I am finding that many of the teachers have already left. Really?
