Hello! I'm new here. I see that there are many teachers on this forum, and I'm hoping to get some opinions about my situation. I teach art at an alternative school. The students are separated by units and we (the teachers) go to the units to conduct classes. Our situation is unique and I know that we are asked to do unconventional things such as teach different levels or classes in one period. I feel very uncomfortable about some things they are asking us to do. The councilor has been placing isolated students in units I do not go to on my schedule. We have arriving new students at all times throughout the year. Her logic is that this student has had passing grades in art class at their home school and wants me to continue to give them art and then give them a semester grade and 9 weeks grade at the end of the school year. I feel very uncomfortable because I do not know or see these students at all. They are in different units and I am required to give a folder of work to one of their teachers to have them complete for my grades. I do not give them any instructions or model any techniques, everything is on paper transferred by another teacher. I'm art class, everything is hands on and all about technique and materials. How can I give a grade to a student that I do not actually teach? And how can I give grades to students that I may only have for 4 or 5 weeks? My admin says to just give them stuff to sketch. Obviously, they don't have a high regard for art class. It feels shady and I do not want to break any kind of rules that would put my teaching certification in jeopardy for these people. Any advice will be helpful! Thank you!
